I am on a diet and basically want something good tonight like a burger and chips! But I know they can be fattening so I am opting for a healthier approach. I have got some lamb mince which has a high fat content as it is not lean HOWEVER, I will be making lamb burgers with fried onions, garlic and paprika along with egg to keep it together and I will oven them to cook it all the way through and drain the fat off, and griddle them later on to drain more fat and to heat it up, so to speak. Along with this, I have got a sweet potato so I will cut them into match sticks and oven them as a substitute to frozen chips with a salad and low fat sour cream and chive sauce. Does this sound like a healthy dinner? I will not be having a bun with my burger as that's extra carbs I do not want to eat

Calculate the calories, and minus a bit for the drained fat. Are you within your target? If so, go.
You will probably want olive oil on the sweet potato - it's good for you. Nutritionally, it's quite good. It really is ok to have the occasional treat, but this sounds nice, anyway - I'm hungry now.Last edited by Octohedral; 24-01-2015 at 15:36.

Everything is healthy in moderation. You deserve a treat every now and again.

Yeah there is nothing wrong with that meal, sounds healthy enough. If you're aiming to lose weight the only thing that actually matters is calories in vs calories out.
