Not really. Just monitor for cravings afterwards, and keep those in check. By cravings, I mean hunger pains the next day, and things like that. Keep enough SBD legal snacks around in case that happens.

If they have an online menu, we can help you choose your dinner item if you want! That's always fun.

Something I do in restaurants is order dinner from the appetizer menu. As an example, I might have a crab cake from the appetizers menu, and a side salad. Have them served together, and create my own salad.

Good luck, and let us know what you end up eating.

Where my problem comes in is with the carbs.

I would ask for no fries or potatoes; skip those entirely. You will have enough food with the entree. Eating a plain potato is one thing, but fried or mashed have so much fat in them. Personally, I would stay away from them.

Any option for a side salad or steamed vegetable instead of the potatoes?

I responded too early this morning; on my way to work I had a thought. When you asked if it was okay to have a P2 food while only 1.5 weeks into P1, I thought you meant maybe a sweet potato, whole wheat roll, or something like that. White potatoes aren't legal at all on SBD, so those aren't even P2 foods.

I can get a salad or a sweet potato if I add on $3.

Can you let us know where you're going. We can take a look at the menu and help you better.

Gotcha. But they might be willing to substitute the veggies or salad with a different entree.
