    Lunch time, I often order a burger on Victoria, then discard all the fries, bread and trimmings and eat it with a salad. I do the same at home [in house it's M&S Aberdeen Angus best].

    That's healthy enough for me.

      I have done the same Mrs M, but not often as there is always something else I fancy more. I'm reminded of an American lady, travelling alone, but with an elderly fience in Oz. she was going to meet his daughters, who were only a bit younger than she was. She was anxious to look her best and not gain weight, so she counted six fries with her burger! I hope it helped.

      PS we saw her again last year with her now husband, aged 85.

        Well I'm a salad nut at lunchtime and avoid anything else. An occasional burger, grilled salmon or grilled chicken adds a little protein without adding too many calories.

        Can't have done too badly as my weight gain over five weeks onboard was just 3 lbs!

              I go up/down 2kg+ a day depending on input and output alway lightest in the morning after.....
              A few beers can add kg before the seal is broken.

                I very rarely bought burgers for many years, but some time ago i discovered a firm in Scotland called Donald Russell, and I send orders on line. All their products are very good,and I tried their beefburgers. They are larger than many shop ones,and are really delicious.

                  I tried an air fryer a couple of months ago after hearing great things. I bought it from QVC so I knew I could send it back in 30 days no quibble if I didn't like it. We tried a few different things but it went back after a couple of weeks. I much prefer the oven or pans I use already.

                    I am finding it much easier and quicker than the oven or pans, and probably cheaper. So far so good. Never eat chips at home. fat fryer binned a long time ago and cannot stand oven chips, however they are good in the air fryer. Bacon was better than pan although I have not mastered the fried egg....yet.
