In many families, Friday/Saturday night is takeaway night – the one night of the week where we give ourselves a treat. And if everyone else is off to the takeaway, it can be a nightmare trying to resist!
Instead of banning yourself from the takeaway, you can make some sensible food choices – so you can still enjoy treat night with your family without feeling left out.
Most takeout restaurants will be happy to tweak your dish according to your dietary needs – so just put on your best smile and ask nicely!
To help you figure out the takeaway, we’ve come up with a list of the top dishes for you to avoid when you go out – as well as some alternative choices that are much lower in calories and fat. All portion sizes are approximate and are for one standard takeaway portion, and quantities may differ from restaurant to restaurant.
I don’t like to pick out healthy foods being better than others but if you are going to picky there are some fabulous foods you can include in your weight loss diet or part of an overall healthy eating plan.
Here are 7 weight loss foods to include in this week’s shop.
Prep time: 20 minutes

So if you are struggling with this area, note YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!
In our home we have always tried to be relaxed about eating with our children. We always sit at the table (95% of the time) and eat the same family meal together.
Of course there are days when the sh#t hits the fan or when grumpy 1 and grumpy 2 rear their ugly heads, but generally this is how it exists.
