If it bad to eat out say more than twice a week?
I don't mean fast food, but ordinary meals in restaurants?

I've heard so much controversy over this.
huh? how can it be bad? I mean it's bad for your finances, but apart from that it really depends what you eat i guess. I used to eat out a lot when I was at school, cause I'd leave the house between 6:30 am and 7:30 am and not be back before 10:30 pm... not had any trouble. Most times Pizza, Mexican or French.

How much does it cost to eat out in your countries?
Chinese-
Indian-
Local restaurant with local specialities-
French-
Up market-?
It depends where you eat and what you eat. I'll give you a quick guide for some of the better restaurants in Edinburgh:


Chinese - 3 course buffet lunch, drink - £7.50 - China China
Chinese - Starter, main course, drink - £25 - IZZI

Indian - 2 course lunch, naan bread, drink - £7.50 - Gandhi's
Indian - 2 course meal, naan bread, drink - £26 - Ignite

Local restaurant - 3 course meal, drink - £30 - Borough
Local restaurant - 3 course meal, drink - £55 - Wee Windaes

French - Petit Paris set lunch (9 - 6pm), steak / fresh fish etc. - £6 including bread and coffee
French - Petit Paris after 6pm, 2 course meal and drink, £30

Up market - Prices vary far too much to give a guide. It also depends what you consider up market. The last time I ate at a 5 star hotel was at the Westin Turnberry, it was about £85 per head for a three course meal (not including drinks).

As I'm sure many have said, it depends on exactly what you have. I don't think, biologically, it makes any difference whether you eat your food at home or out!

I'd be terrified of the phenomenal calorie content.
