    Okay, maybe it's mostly that these are pretty fatty cuts of meat, and some of the fat that is not saturated is monounsaturated. Still, this does make you think again about eating out even when It's hard to avoid. I thought, just occasionally eating some meat and maybe fruit would be okay, but maybe not. My trouble is I have histamine reactions to cheese and even milk and also to gelatin. So, it makes it hard to eat away from home.

    What I do may not help you but it works for me.

    I explain that I am allergic to oils and can only have butter.
    I tell them I am gluten intolerant.
    Then I ask if the hamburger meat is only meat or might have something added to it that I'm allergic to.
    (I almost never order a steak because of expense.)

    People are very nice and go check the kitchen for me.

    Oh, now that I read more closely, I see that wasn't really your question.
    Well, my ideas might help somebody else or in a little different situation. :)

    Thanks Birdie, this definitely helped me. That is a terrific strategy.
    And if they marinate the meat in oil, you'll be sure to find that out quickly! ;)

    Thanks Birdie! That is very helpful, because really I'm just trying to avoid excess PUFAs wherever they are coming from. Looking at the amount of PUFA in some restaurant food made me realize just how much there is to avoid. What you said seems like a simple way to explain what you're concerned about.
