Today is an off day from the gym will be back tomorrow. The family wants to go to a Chinese restaurant. Should this be my splurge for the week, or you think there is something that will be OK for a low carb, high protein diet? Or, should I not even worry about it since I'll be hitting the gym tomorrow.

BTW, it's you standard Chinese restaurant, sweet and sour chicken and stuff, nothing gourmet or fancy

I doubt you'll find much in a Chinese restaurant that's high protein, low carb...unless you ask them to specially prepare something for you, which is a possibility. Just enjoy the food and get back on your diet right after, it's only one meal.

What about beef and broccoli, black bean chicken, mixed veggies and a bit of white rice?

Just avoid stuff thats really drenched in sauce or fried and you should be ace.

I don't know of a place where you can get those dishes where they're not bathing in some sugary sauce (minus the rice of course).

When you have a wife who craves a grocery list of foods every day, you become an expert very quickly.:)

Next time take your family to Olive Garden.

What you want to do is start off with Hot Artichoke-Spinach Dip
as an appetizer. Once you salivary glands start swimming move on to Steak Gorgonzola-Alfredo. Finally you’ll want to finish with White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake for dessert.

PS. I just made myself so hungry.

*note to self* Go to Olive Garden tomorrow!!!

But if u want to be picky, then pick dishes that are not battered and fried.

Eh, I would have preferred Japanese, but theywanted Chinese. Anyays, had curry chicken and vegetables, but only had a little less than half the plate, filled up pretty quick. I figure the rest can go post workout tonight.

As others have said; one meal is not going to destroy your diet. If I had to plan and decline every single meal that didn't meet my goal, I would likely have quit this crap years ago.
