FORUM : Recipes

Calorie counts per dish

Hi! I know the meal customization has this but not specifically for the dishes esp the recipes here. It will make the substitutions easier. I work nights and usually out of the house most of the time, knowing that I have a calorie cap of say 1,400 per day, it will be so much easier to plan meals especially when meal options are mostly from eating out-fastfood, groceries, restaurants.

Thank you for your patience! ;)

Hi Jihan, you can use the Personal Questions tool to ask our dietitian if you can switch to a lower calorie/day meal plan. :-q

@Belle: Kenny Rogers is OK, but you don't have to limit yourself there every time. :) You can go to other places with healthy options, like Pancake House.

Every saturday and sunday i have no choice but to eat in a restaurant. I will always choose kenny rogers because they have low calorie meal. Is it ok?

@victoriacastillo: Haha I agree that you have limited choices at ministop. We must hold our horses on the kariman. What I can suggest there is the stuffed pandesal, sandwiches, a few of their rice meals (not fried please, maybe give me a few examples?), a cup of yogurt and a fresh banana or apple if there's any :)

When I went to Mini-Stop naman, it seemed like everything was fried. :( At my old job, I would have the kariman, only to find out it's about 600-700 calories! Yikes! Tapos mahilig pa ako sa iced tea noon. So that's an automatic 700-800 calories for lunch alone.

When I had no choice but Mini-Stop recently, I just ended up getting a siopao. Lesser evil. :(

@ AiDenBoks: To add to Victoria's suggestions, I usually find good choices at 7-11, believe it or not. You can buy a sandwich or a wrap there, plus a serving of salad, voila, you have a Bon Appetit Diet approved Express meal :)

Also try to meet your diet halfway and adapt to it by bringing a packed lunch. On some days, packed lunch, and really busy days, eat out. You can choose a few of our recipes here that can be easy for you to cook. Small changes by lessening eating out goes a long way when it comes to weight loss.

- 1/4 chicken with rice, or liempo with the fat/skin trimmed off...not sure if they also serve vegetables, but I hope they do

Burger King
- Whopper Jr., no mayo, bottled water, small fries (but better without)

Coffee Bean
- Greek salad or salami sandwich

Army Navy
- Tacos

Chowking/North Park
- Steamed dumplings
- Skip fried rice and noodles
- Steamed vegetables (don't use all the bagoong at Chowking)

- Teppanyaki with vegetables
- Be careful with sushi rolls, unless you'll eat an order as a complete meal

- Sorry, I can't think of a safe meal for these. Proceed with caution. :D

- Already covered by Charmaine in her blog

Nagutom tuloy ako. :D

I usually eat where it's 24 hours open.

So the after work food options will include:
Andoks, Baliwag, Mcdo, Jollibee, Burger King, Chowking, Army Navy, Shakey's, North Park, Kitaro, Coffee Bean, Starbucks, Jayjay's, etc.

For days that I get tired with these food choices and am not that hungry, I eat Nestle fruit yoghurt 0% fat with about 7-8 raw almonds or walnuts and drink chamomile lemon tea for my last meal.

Where do you usually eat? Maybe we can help you with specific restaurant strategies. :)
