I guesstimate then add about 20% of that value.

I will look at the nutrition information of a similar restaurant and use that.

In situations like that...I don't track unless I order something really basic (which I usually don't :)). Seriously, I've found that if I worry about tracking, I don't enjoy the meal very much, so I just skip doing it and enjoy myself. I love love love eating out at good restaurants but I don't do it very often anymore so I want to enjoy it when I do.

I'd just estimate and enter each of the components individually :) For example if you got shrimp scampi, estimate how many shrimp and track that, how much pasta you ate, etc. I agree too, with the below comment about adding in additional oil calories.

In these situations, I take my best guess in the tracker, add 10% volume to everything, then add 2 tbsp of cooking oil in the tracker...I figure that will cover most of the numbers most of the time.

Enjoy!

If you bring forth that which is within you, that which is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you, that which you do not bring forth will destroy you.

I'm going to dinner tonight at my favorite restaurant in Tallahassee.... 101! Unfortunately, there is no nutrition information available. How do I track?

I am a newbie vegetarian. I am learning new ways to cook, to eat out, and nourish my body.
