Eat Out, Maintain Control ( Diabetes )

Eat Out, Maintain Control ( Diabetes )

Dread the temptations of restaurant eating? Have a strategy for keeping control when dining out:

Kid-size it. If there are child-size portions on the menu beyond the standard macaroni and cheese and hot dog fare, request a children’s size or a half-portion.

Call ahead. If you aren’t sure of the range of menu options at a restaurant, phone first and find out. Most will be happy to oblige you. Ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask your server if substitutions are available for menu items.

Analyze. Many popular national and regional eateries offer nutritional information for the asking, either online or at their restaurants.
Share dessert. Just can’t pass up the dessert cart? It’s okay to indulge once in a while, in moderation. Share one serving among several diners.
