I am newly addicted to Fat Flush - simply because it is the first diet I have actually managed to follow. Which means this is the first time I feel anxious about meal choices while eating out.
Fish seems like an obvious safe choice, but there are so many hidden ingredients that I still worry one night out and off the wagon I fall.

Any tips??

Eating out is so hard to do on a diet. One of the things that my husband and I have done (well, mostly me) is I make the fat flush dressing (flax oil, lemon and apple cider vinegar with some parsley flakes) and put it in a small baby food container. Then I put the cranberry juice in a 4 oz baby bottle and cap it tight. I carry these things with me when I have to go out to eat. I have ordered the smoked salmon ceasar without dressing or croutons (the darn thing came out with a really delicious looking corn bread muffin that I had to promptly put out of my reach!). The salad had so much yummy romain lettuce that I had some to take home for a salad the next day. Today, my hubby and I ate at Ruby Tuesdays and the obvious choice was their very delicious salad bar. However, he also ordered the baked talapia with broccoli and green beans. The green beans were soaked in butter, of course, so we couldn't eat them (forgot to ask the waiter). Again, we had our own dressings and put the cranberry juice in our waters. Hope this helps.

Thanks, those are good tips! I generally love Japanese food and having read the guidelines in the book know what to eat there. Your info helps when eating at more regular restaurants, although its always the darn sauces that are tricky - I try to avoid anything soya sauce based and just hope anything else is safe-ish.

anybody out there using the New Atkins book
My diet is based on the new book. The meal suggestions are helpful as it gives ideas of what to eat.

KCal ... Total Cal ... and workout Cal
The nutritional Calorie is 1000 standard calories. A kcal is a kilocalorie which is 1000 calories. So a nutritional Calorie is the same as a kcal.

This is a great time to make your own cranwater while they are in season. I get a bag of cranberries for 99 cents here so you are saving bundles; it is however, a little time consuming.
