Eating Out When You Have Diabetes

I was nodding my head in agreement with this article on WebMD until I got to this part:

Try vegetarian menu options. Ethnic restaurants, such as Indian, Thai, or Japanese restaurants, often have a wide variety of vegetarian choices.

Most Indian — and Thai — vegetarian food is anything but. It’s mostly some form of lentil served with rice or potato drenched in a butter curry sauce. Is it any wonder that Indian — and South East Asia in general — is seeing an increased prevalence of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease? Eat Indian food is you want a high carb high fat meal.  There are very few vegetables in Indian vegetarian food.  I joke with my wife — she’s Indian — that she and her family are “carbohydratarians”.

  1. I use “carboholic” and “breadaholic” myself (fresh-baked bread is pretty darn much irresistable).
