  • I usually just do steak at applebees or the low carb burger at Carl's jr.
  • 8ounce steak, double broccoli
  • Grilled salmon and asparagus, or other select veggies.
  • steak and broccoli or a salad with grilled chicken
  • Salad with veggies and grilled chicken, steak with broccoli or asparagus, hamburger with a veggie or side salad. I like going to Fire and Ice because you can pick your meats and veggies and watch them grill it. I also like Brazilian restaurants because you can get veggies/salad and they bring meats to your table.
  • I usually check the gluten free options - Find a good meat option with no sauce or coating, then ask for steamed veggie with no butter. At applebees, I get the steak with either steamed broccoli or steamed spinach (double order). Or I get the Shrimp & spinach salad with no dressing and double shrimp.
  • I am with everyone else with the steak and grilled veggies and the salad with chicken, and I also LOVE the Brazilian steak house in Saskatoon Saboroso. My husband and I used to go there all the time before the diet and so we still get our date night with very little comprise on my part
  • We go out to eat every weekend. We go to a place down the street (bar) that has great bar food, and a waitress on IP...so, she gives me tips and some apple cider vinegar as needed .

    I get: steak, steamed veggies, pork chops, salmon, shrimp, chicken, salad with dressing on the side.

    Tonight we went to a burger place and my hubby had an awesome unhealthy, non IP burger, I had a 'naked' burger on a salad with no cheese, sauce or dressing. They gave me a few tablespoons of EVOO to put on top.

    Last night I had grilled pork chops with hot and sweet peppers.

    Most places are accomodating if you tell them you are on a restricted or gluten free diet. I've never had a problem.
  • Tonight we went to a Brazilian restaurant with meat, different kinds of meat, and more meat! Hint - skip the salad bar, it just fills you up way too soon - you need that extra room for more meat!
  • Yep, like everyone else, steak, veggies or grilled chicken, salad.

    We LOVE the Brazillian steak house also. We haven't been since I started IP, they have amazing potatoes & rolls. I have no cravings and no trouble passing these things up at regular restaurants, but I don't trust myself at the Brazillian steakhouse yet.

    I haven't found anything I could trust to be IP friendly at any chinese restaurant so we avoid those. At Mexican restaurants I usually get a taco salad without all the non-ok items. So far so good!

    "Good" nothin! You are doing fantastic!!!
  • Ceviche & salad
  • 8oz filet + double broccoli
    Salmon + double asparagus
    Carne asada + double grilled peppers + pico de gallo/salsa
    10-piece Sashimi + sliced cukes w/lemon + miso soup
  • Unfortunately, I tend to eat the wrong things when I go out. When on my best behavior, I go for salad and a small sandwich.
  • I hate it when I say no cheese/certain veggies/bread and it's brought anyway! I end up pushing it on my boyfriend's plate.
