Okay many say they do this diet 100 percent. Tonight my husband wants to go to Buffalo Wild Wings they do not share nutritional information. Am I literally supposed to bring my scale in to weight the meat? A tablespoon to measure the dressing? And if so any advice on how to do this discreetly would like to know how others handle this..

Thanks-.

Kiki.

Thanks when I've asked before they said they don't have it hmmm sneaky server thanks for the link..

Comment #2

When I am going out and don't know if the salad dressing options will be OP, I just pop one of those WishBone spray-on salad dressings in my purse. No none has ever even noticed, and I don't care if they do notice!.

Comment #3

I will have to get a specialized salad. Lettuce, tomato, and the chicken on the side and Ranch dressing on the side to fork dip. I think I'm going to be super nerd and actually bring my scale and a tablespoon in a bag so I can weigh the chicken and measure the dressing.

I have a portable scale that I often bring with me when I eat out. Yes I do measure it! When that's not an option, I ask the server for a to go container right away and put half my lean in it. I then weight that half once I get home. That tells me how much I ate at the restaurant and how much more I might need to eat. I also can't over eat if I pack it up right away..

Comment #5

Well I've lugged a bag with butt wipes, diaper rash cream, and leaky baby bottles for years so I guess I can bring a scale and spoon. Luckily it's just my husband and kids tonight..

Comment #6

Excellent! Who cares what anyone thinks!? Sure it's not the "normal" thing to do in a restaurant, but unfortunately it seems the normal thing at restaurants is eat till ya can't move. Do whatcha gotta do cuz nobody else is gonna lose weight for you..

Comment #7

I take my scale and salad dressing with me and weigh my lean if the waitstaff can't find out from the kitchen what the cooked weight is on the lean. I try to be discreet if I use my scale and if anybody has noticed, I haven't noticed. I'm too busy discreetly weighing my lean. I also do what MT-Cup does and take half my lean home if I am unsure of the weight. I then weigh it and eat what I can if I was short at dinner. I also tip well if the waitstaff has been particularly accommodating.

Good for you for preparing ahead of time..

Whatta we care bout what anyone thinks ?

Give up that stinkin thinkin.

Bring scale.

I just wouldnt pop out a mixer !!!!!.

LOLLLLLLLLLLL.

Comment #9

I LOVE this idea. I personally am not willing to bring a scale along with me to most restaurants (especially since I often eat out with people I don't know that well), but I can TOTALLY see doing this. I would have never thought of it (duh). Thank you so much!.

Comment #10

You are brilliant! I often get them to bring a to go box and split my meal before I take a bite. BUT, I've never thought about weighing it when I get home. DUH.........

I have completely broken out the scale numerous times at a restaurant. Ok I've only gone out to eat 3x. But I am mire important than any embarrassment the scale may bring..

Comment #13

Yes, I did weigh my chicken and I did measure out my dressing with a measuring spoon. I did feel a little weird, but my husband didn't care he's thrilled I'm losing weight. Who knows maybe I'll start a new trend. I used to weight tables and never saw anyone weigh they're food can't say I saw too many folks pray before eating but we always do that at restaurants too. Guess I just need to be comfortable in my own skin..

Thanks so much for the great tips. I think I'll buy an extra scale and measuring spoon to keep in the car since I eat our frequently hopefully people won't think I'm dealing dope-LOL.

Comment #14

I bring the scale when eating out with family or friends who are also on meal plans (they usually end up borrowing mine LOL). I don't when I'm eating out with work colleagues or with customers. That's when I bring home half. Saves the embarrassment.

I agree and also tip extra for accommodating wait staff. I used to wait tables, so I have a good idea what they can and can't do. Including influencing the kitchen..

Comment #15

I purchased a tiny scale at Target for maybe $5. I think you can also find it on Amazon. It's called Salter 16-Ounce Food Scale with Storage Container and Lid. It is very compact and portable.

I did take it to a restaurant once. I placed it on the table and chickened out so I did the eat half trick, weigh later. I only ordered boiled shrimp so I had a lot of room for error.

But, this is the scale I carry in my purse or daybag to work etc. just in case.

Good luck!.

Comment #16

I love Target I'll get that scale and also measuring spoons for the dressing..

Comment #17

LOL! that's so true..

Glad you are going for the salad.. some of those nutrition facts in that link looked sketch... no carbs in a boneless wing with sauce? umm....

Comment #18

I *love* to go to BWW! In fact, I just went there Thursday with my parents and sister precisely because I knew I could get a good L&G there. I always order the naked tenders and sub a side salad for the fries (this costs $.99 extra, which I think is ridiculous, but anyway...).

I usually take a packet of Newman's Own Lighten Up Balsamic Vinaigrette (which I stockpile from McDonalds) for the salad. I don't weigh and measure all the chicken and veggies, but I've been MFing long enough that I've gotten reasonably good about eye-balling it. I'm not opposed to bringing a scale along though, and I may just so that next time. Mine would fit in my purse!.

Oh my gosh, you've lost what I need to lose how does it feel???????????.
