I'm not Serene or Pearl, but I have eaten out 2x since starting THM 2.5 weeks ago. On both occasions I ate a burger with bacon, cheese, and all the veggies - just no bun. I also substituted a salad for the fries and cole slaw options.
At the the 99, they were awesome about the side salad. She came back out and said "you probably don't want croutons on your salad since you don't want any bread? would you like me to put some fresh grated Parmesan on that?" The salad turned out awesome.
I had a coffee while others enjoyed their desserts knowing that I had several yummy dessert options available at home.
I have eaten out several times since starting the plan. Some on plan, some not. Having a nice dessert at home really helps me resist that temptation. I love dessert. I also love sodas. I try to avoid ordering things I will feel like I just have to have a soda with. I am not a coffee drinker but I often used a warm herbal tea when hungry at home between meals. I think I might start doing that at resturants too.
I have eaten out a few times since THM. One time I had the burger without the bun, broccoli and salad. Another time I had salmon, broccoli and salad. A turkey wrap eaten without the wrap. Salad and pizza toppings (scraped off the crust). I always seem to find broccoli and salad as the only acceptable veggie side!

2yorkiemama: tinac and steffanie3 - thanks very much! I really appreciate your time! I in day 4 of FP and seems to be going well. I am so used to eating fat, this couple of days is harder. I'm not a carb girl, really. It's hard for me to think it's ok. EEK!

donawyo: Hello. May we have mayonnaise on S days of a Fuel Cycle?

steffanie3: Off the top of my head donawyo, I wouldn't, unless it is a homemade. I came away from that chapter really focusing on superfoods that week, so homemade with some great deep S fats would work

alicat825: caddaway, I haven't been officially diagnosed but my nutritionist says I have a good chance of having it. THM really helps with it, as long as you balance the S, E, and FP meals. You can't go overboard with any of them
Mar 10, 2014 17:22:08 GMT -5
alicat825: choose which type of meals you are going to eat for each meal. Example: I eat E in the morning, FP snacks, S for lunch, and S for dinner

alicat825: caddaway, if you notice that your energy levels drop dramatically, try a crossover snack here and there. You will have to find the right balance for you.
