    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.
    Smoochies,
