      1. Better Burger "air fries" (french fries) are only five points! Have them with a salad with a buffalo burger on top.

        1. re: BW212

          Ah just went there (Better Burger) again today. They now have Ostrich instead of Buffalo (I think they switch back and forth). An entire ostrich patty is only 3 points -- and unlike turkey, it tastes just like beef.

      2. I would order sashimi. If you like Chinese food, I order steamed shrimp with mixed vegetables with garlic sauce (and a small amount of rice). WW put out a book of point values at various restaurants. I think the information was available on line too.

        1. I'm on WW and my fave place is eating home! Agree that if you are eating out, sashimi is a great option...all you can eat pasta not so much. There is good thread about dieting on "not about food" board. get comfortable with what a serving looks like.

          1. I really enjoy eating at Josie's on the UWS - you can't control the portion sizes necessarily, but you know there is no extraneous oil, butter, etc in the food (well, no butter because most of the food is dairy-free.)

            Another great option is any good greek or mediterranean restaraunt - they usually have whole grilled or steamed fish, which is a fantastic protein option on WW.

              Le Pain Quotidien has organic soups, salads and sandwiches.
              (walk right past their front counter with all those neat looking pastries!)
