Eating Out and Diabetes

Tips for Eating Out with Diabetes

Take time to look over the menu and make a healthy choice.

Don't be afraid to ask for items not on the menu or to have a meal prepared with less or no added fat.

Ask about portion sizes and the fat and calorie content of menu items.

Choose steamed, grilled, or broiled dishes instead of those that are fried or sautéed.

Be the first to order so you are not influenced by what others are ordering.

Always order the smallest size meal instead of the larger, super-sized versions at fast-food restaurants.

You can eat half of what you order and take the rest home for a second meal.

Order salad dressing, gravy, sauces, or spreads "on the side."

Order a salad for starters and share a main dish with a friend.

When you crave high-calorie foods, desserts, or snacks, don't be too hard on yourself. It's okay to have a small portion once in a while or to share a dessert with a friend. Just keep your weight loss goal in mind.

Stay away from "all-you-can-eat restaurants or buffets" where it's hard to control portion sizes and how much you eat.
