Eating Out

13 Feb 2012, by Dr. Marnie Wachtler in Nutrition

As the saying goes popularized by the Movie ‘Pirates of the Carabean’

“They aren’t rules, but more like guidelines.”

Avoid deciding where you’ll eat out when your hungry.  You brain will lose out to your cravings and you’ll make bad decisions.  If the restaurant serves bread or chips with the meal ask the server to remove them so you won’t be tempted.  If the bread is whole grain and too delicious to pass up, add some butter (yes that’s right!).  Fats reduce the absorption of carbohydrates and reduce the blood sugar spikes of carbohydrates.
