    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Friend of mine and me went out to eat today at a Chinese buffet . Hard to count the calories, I estimated around 1000 for one plate.

    Yes most food out is high in calories I try to stay away from Chinese food because all the things on the menu I like are too calorie loaded ..

    I adore chinese food. But even when I am intelligent about it and get a dish which is 90% vegetables, my scale shows a gain the next day. Why? Sodium levels. Last time, I showed a gain of 2 pounds and my husband showed a gain of 3. Still, I don't exclude it-I just have it less often. And I try to chose carefully which for me means no more sweet and sour pork. Boo hoo.
