Oh, lol. I didn't think of that! Glad to hear you felt it was okay to leave food on your plate. It is the daily changes, rather than the "once in a while" things we do that make the difference. Keep your attitude positive about those daily habits.

If your ok with a little lie make your own dinner and say the dr. Thinks you may be allergic so he put you on a very restricted program. Be sure to say I sure hope he's wrong because I was really looking forward to this meal. I thought about cancelling out but didn't want to miss out celiberating father in laws birthday.

When possible I try to stay within my calorie range, and plan for high cal meals when we go to someone else's house (my mom and my mother-in-law both cook high-calorie). I try to eat some high fiber foods and drink a couple cups of water 1-2 hours before the meal as well. Then I can honestly say "it was delicious, but I'm full" l when I've had enough. With a bit of planning I can usually stay on track so I don't feel horrible from over eating after the meal.
Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

I just take a little portion of what ever is served and eat really slowly.
If somebody comments just say you're really not hungry and don't really feel like eating a lot.
Don't make a big fuss over it and it should be fine.
Works for me. emoticon emoticon

What should I do?

Scenario: Tonight is dinner at in laws to celebrate father in laws bday as while as mine. They cook extremely high calorie foods they can turn a salad / veggie dish into super high calories as well. How do I not make a scene and accept the food without really eating it or eating a tiny tiny bit?

My bday is tomorrow I want to wake up feeling good not bloated and gross. I took day off work to go get new clothes...i want to feel good when trying on clothes.

how do you handle dinners that others make for you?

Thanks
