I love Chinese food, too. The sodium is a killer for me though so I have to avoid it.
My husband has a bunch of his friends over, and they will be here most of the weekend. He wants to order pizza to feed everyone tonight. In addition to Chinese food I also love pizza. A lot. I have a plan to make my own cheese pizza on a Hungry Girl foldit with just sauce and some mozzarella. I know it's not greasy and huge and yummy like take out pizza always is, but I'm hoping it hits the spot enough to keep me from digging into the take out.
Then later for dessert/bedtime snack I'm going to have an Atkin's shake and cup of milk. After all is said and done, if I stick to my plan I will be under 1400 calories. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
I ended up having a little sliver (about 4 small bites) of Pizza Hut pizza. And although it was good, I think my Hungry Girl pizza with sauce, mozzarella and a touch of pesto was just as good...and filling. But I ended up having too much soda. However, given that it was take out night, I think I did amazing with only going 146 calories over my regular every day target. Normally I would go over by 800 or so. I'm pretty proud of myself!
