Some anxiety about these situations is entirely normal. We fear the unknown or anything beyond our control. The best way to combat this fear is to know that what you eat is entirely under your control at all times, even if that means you don't eat! Or you pick at things, or pick things out of other dishes and take small servings. Then you can eat a proper low carb meal when you get back to your own kitchen.
I had a serving of beef, a bit of chicken, a few grilled onions, guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes and a few chopped onions. I didn't over-serve myself. But I had a full plate and felt completely satisfied.
This was my alternate day fast day (not part of regular Atkins Induction), and knowing we were eating out, I just fasted until dinner, knowing I could eat anything and everything I wanted to the next day. I was 17 cals over 500, but that's not a big deal. I was a bit under 20g Net Carbs for the day and again, no big deal. No deprivation, full, happy tummy!
