Chili's and Swiss Chalet are my favorites. However both places have a lot of horrible menu choices in addition to the healthy ones, so be careful =]

Snap peas are OK, but I don't know why everyone goes nuts about them...

I wish I liked lettuce though, it's probably a texture thing. But ewwww. I usually see if I can get soup instead.

BUT that doesn't give me an excuse to be a salad dodger.

I make fruit salad, cucumber/tomato salad, or veggie plates with raw broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Be creative =]

I second fenor's idea... Though if you don't mind my asking, why don't you eat seafood? Religious reasons? Allergies? Just taste/feel nasty to you? I am not CRAZY about it but I eat it a lot cause it's so good for you, and I've kind of loearned to like it. But hey, the duck/chicken isn't horrible either. Though your original idea would be ok too if you can't afford the calories. I'm not going to lecture you on how you shouldn't restrict too low and etc... but be mindful =]

I actually just read all 9 pages, and I agree with almost all of them...

~Pregnancy rumors. =]

~Grocery/restaurant paranoia.

~So I can apply to work at the Cheesecake Factory without discouraging potential customers.

~So I don't have such a ridiculously high tolerance to alcohol

~So I can run without barfing

~So people stop assuming that my 13 year old 6' brother is my son

Maybe you need to space out your meals differently... I don't know you or your habits, but I'll try to help. =] Maybe you should plan 5 balanced 300 calorie "meals" per day, and stick to it the best you can. It's unlikely you're getting proper nutrition with so few calories. Even if you do lose some weight, your metabolism will slow eventually. You don't need to be underweight to get all the negative side effects of starvation... Trust me, I know, I've been there. It's not fun. If you're concerned, check a sample meal plan on the internet.

Aaaaanyway sorry for being preachy, hope I can help =]

I may be wrong, but I THINK Stevia is not considered an "artificial" sweetener per se... Calorie free, yes, but it is natural. Pricey though.

Artificial sweeteners affect everyone differently... My best friend gets stomach upset after one aspartame-sweetened diet soda, but one time I drank like 17 liters of it in one day [not good, I know, don't judge me] and... nothing happened.

So yes, unfortunately, I think it's a trial and error thing. =]

I live in Canada, which I believe is almost exactly between England and the US food and generally culture-wise... I do know I get all excited when I go to the States cause of all the exciting new diet foods =]

Though, I know there's a lot of strong advocates for organic, natural, healthy foods on here... it should be noted that I really could care less if I consume carcinogenic artificial chemicals that MAKE the "foods" low-cal, bring on the Olestra and cyclomate I say. Ruffles Light = <3

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
