Healthy eating tips for diabetic patients
Due to work and many other reasons, Hong Kong citizens often opt to eat out. But once diagnosed with diabetes, patients will have to watch their diets and make sure what they eat are low in sodium, sugar, and fats and high in fiber.
Eating out might give us endless choices, but most main courses come with white rice that is low in fiber. Other dishes are either often heavily seasoned or high in fats. Therefore, patients with diabetes, or even regular folks, should consider the healthy eating tips below.
Situation: White rice as main course
Tip: white rice has a high GI; opt for a small bowl of rice and eat more vegetables. Avoid drizzling any sauce on the rice, as rice can absorb all the fats in the sauce
Situation: Soup noodles as main course
Tip: opt for clear soup and thick noodles; eat the noodles and avoid drinking the soup, as it is normally high in sodium
Situation: Meat as main course
Tip: choose fresh meat over processed meat; avoid hotdogs, ham, and luncheon meat
Situation: Salad in meals
Tip: separate the sauce of the salad; if possible, choose olive oil or vinaigrette over mayonnaise or thousand island dressing
Situation: Oily or starchy vegetables
Tip: rinse them in hot water to wash out the excess oil and starch; if possible, ask the restaurant to cut down on the use of oil and starch
Situation: Deep fried food
Tip: remove the skin if you are eating fried chicken
Situation: Complimentary beverages
Tip: choose warm drinks, and ask the restaurant to pack the sugar separately; for chilled drinks, opt for less sugar, sugarless, or ask the restaurant to pack the syrup separately
