Yes, wanting to eat out has taken a dive in my list of things I enjoy, lol! But agree with others, if you can ring in advance, go to moderately to high priced places or Japanese. One chef told me (when I was thanking him for the fabulous job he did of taking care of my needs - was best meal out I have had since on OMS) that I "should walk out of any place that made a fuss, it is really not that hard"......Must remember the name of the place, it was in Taupo. I have found in NZ, so far, they have all been very accommodating. It is hard when you can't ring in advance however, as I don't like making a fuss and totally agree with not enjoying being the 'difficult' person who dictates a bit where to eat..... Lucky I have very supportive people around me. If I have to suck up having some refined oil on the odd occasion
I don't freak out about it, I am so dedicated elsewhere with the diet that I figure once every two months or so this breach is not the end of the world. Doing well so seems to work, touch wood!
Eating a bit before you go and carrying a few things is great advice. I do this, but am going to be much more adventurous with what I take after reading some of the posts here!
