Sounds reasonable when you put it like that

Although apart from the mental aspect (which doesn't bother me - I have a will of steel), is there a biological reason why a cheat meal per week is good? I heard on The Biggest Looser (yeah I know, hardly a reliable source) that a cheat meal reminds your body that you're not really on a diet, so your body keeps loosing the weight, instead of going into starvation mode.
Yeah according to my mother (who is a nutritionist :p:) it is true, cheat meals keep the body guessing. If you eat the same thing everyday within a few weeks your body will adapt to the caloric intake. Like you have to spice things up and keep the body confused if that makes sense.

Mmmmmm chicken. Ages since I've had that.

Do they do brown pasta with the salads?
Just on the whole ED issue. If you're asking yourself whether or not you have one then it's likely you do. Then again if you're being influenced by people screaming 'anorexia!' in your face because you're eating healthily then ignore it. Calorie counting is fine, but if you start becoming happier when you've eaten less calories than you could then I would start worrying - 'only 1000 calories whoop whoop' isn't a good attitude to have, even if you feel that it's still a 'healthy' amount to have had in a day.

Hope that helped

Oh and there's a restaurant called 'Giraffe' they have in some places that does lots of healthy food.

Sushi is healthy? Or wagamamas? Japanese/Thai/Morrocan food is gd for you. But it sounds like you like crappy english food so maybe a newish pub. Maybe if you said where you are that might help you.
I'm in Newcastle

They do do wholemeal pasta on the Fish, Veg and Pasta menu (Simply Pasta)

There's also the Chicken menu.

They're really REALLY good at adjusting what they cook to meet your needs, too.
ooooh it's awesome! I'm really excited about this pub chain Thank you for introducing it to me! Enjoy your 535+ rep

Yup that's exactily it. People trying to label me.

I've never bragged online about how many (or few) calories I eat. In fact, I've never mentioned it. :confused:

But there's no way I'm 'emacipated'

Also a question such as "Does your diet socially isolate you?" could be replied in the affirmative by anyone on a diet (that is, until resturants start to cater for everyone).

Accoding to the details of 'Orthorexia', every fitness instructor I've ever known would have the condition! lol

Oh the drama of eating out!

Can someone please advise where is the best place to eat for the minimum of calories/fat possible?

I'm a fan of Wetherspoons but their menu is limited.

Please suggest venues and menus!
I've just had a quick googlie and it ame up with 'Tantalus Restaurant' in Newcastle which is apparently low fat. Any good? http://uk.holidaysguide.yahoo.com/p-...le_upon_tyne-i

Pizza Hut do a good range of salads now, or if you wanta pizza you could go for an edge with half mozzarella.

I wasn't trying to imply that you were, I just saw that you asked a couple of pages ago if people thought calorie counting = an eating disorder. I just couldn't be bothered to find and quote it.
Didn't mean to cause offence

well, I don't think weight is really a diagnostic factor, more a symptom which might raise suspicion. reminds me of a post I read on here once tho 'you don't have to be emaNcipated to be anorexic'...I nearly died laughing :p:

anyway. tis a pretty vague diagnosis which is why it's not official I reckon, as you said a huge proportion of people could probably be said to fit the criteria.

if your diet and your attitude towards it is enhancing your life and physical health rather than getting in the way of it I'd say there's no way you have a problem of any kind so tell people where to go!

If the pond was therapy for your (not existent) cerebral palsy, then yes
