since it's your friends b-day why not enjoy your meal and forget about the cut for one day!

take a day out, if you cutting a treat can help more than anything. at the moment im cutting so if i no im going out like it was my parents anniversary the other day i left myself 800 cals for the meal so i can have what i like but im still hitting my cals for the day.

How much fat you expecting to gain from one meal? My advice? Chalk it up as a cheat meal and be happy. If you really want to stick to your cut, then just use your judgment to eat as sensibly as possible.

If you really want to salvage your diet, avoid meals that sound like a lot of condiments/oils/crap is neccessary to make them.

Stick to s**t like a lean cut of steak or a chicken breast, alongside some steamed/boiled vegetables or a salad.

My friends (and in particular girlfriend) love eating out. It's much less now than it was (once a week, sometimes twice... so that says something about how much it was before).

If I know I'm going out I just bank some calories. I like to leave 1000 free for dinner/evening eating regardless (I work out at night) and most meals can fit into that, easy. Get chicken, preferably non-battered. Avoid the ceaser salad. Get a baked potato instead of fries.

Or... don't. Seriously, you'd have to whip off a 3500 calorie meal to gain a pound. That's like eating two steak and pancake combos, four eggs, two cups of chocolate milk, and two pieces of cheesecake from Smitty's.

Even eating out as often as I do I rarely go above 2100 calories, which should still be within my maintenance range (180 lb) if not cut range. Of course, I haven't lost a pound in 8 weeks of cutting so... don't go out all the time.
