Eating out

  • Aug 10th, 2013 at 11:36PM

Is that even possible at all with PCP? For today's lunch, we struggled thinking of a good healthy restaurant to go to in Singapore. The best we can think of was PS Cafe where they serve salads, good clean burger, sandwiches, and pasta.

I settled on a beef bolognese pasta (for carbs and some protein), greenhouse salad for my veggies. I made sure to tell the waiter to inform the chef not to put salt on my pasta. On the other end of the table, my gf ordered a burger and salad on the side.

However I struggled figuring out how much amount of carbs, protein, and veggies I should have on my plate. I know the number of grams but I still do not have any idea on the actual amount of food I should actually eat. I wondered if I should have a portable weighing scale with me all the time? Can you even get a portable scale that can fit my clutch bag? Thinking my trainor will freak out of my food choice today, I decided to eat half of the pasta, half of the salad and half of the beef pattie from my friend's burger for my protein intake. Tell me if I am in trouble eating out today??

Second question: can we use ready made tomato sauce if we want to cook pasta? Of course, I will make sure there will be steamed veggies on the side ;-)

For dinner, we had yummy stir fry veggies, peppered chicken breast and rice - at home without vino. Hopefully I bailed myself out of my lunch choice today!!!

Its much easier to follow the PCP diet at home, so during this 90 days try to eat out only as a treat (like it used to be in the old days), and yeah there are portable scales available. Check this out: http://www.thepeakconditionproject.com/programs/20/questions/3256

Also ... avoid ready made tomato sauce for pasta, remember the rule if it comes in a box or a jar (processed food) then its out for the 90 days.

      smile and wink at your waiter- if the restaurant isn't too busy, they should be able to weigh for you. Dishes are standardised in size and the chef will know the exact weight- if you're nice they should be able to weigh it out for you!

        Yep service levels in Honkers are usually pretty good so a smile and a wink ought to do it ;-)
