Chinese is tough. My family loves the Chinese buffet, and we go occasionally but I hate to go because there is nothing there that is really on plan for me. I usually have some egg drop soup (probably has corn starch), a big plate of the garlic and hot pepper green beans (which have too much oil, so I blot as much as possible, and a couple of chicken teriyaki skewers (I'm sure the marinade has sugar). It's always too much salt and I always bloat. Would DH object if you ordered Chinese for everyone and made yourself a quick stir fry? If, that is, you are ordering takeout and eating at home.
The SB dining guide says to look for clear soups, steamed fresh vegs prepared with small amts of meat, avoid noodle based entrees, steamed white rice, fried rice, pot stickers, anything called crispy or sweet and sour,. Request food be prepared without MSG and cornstarch. Not much help really, good luck.
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.
