Individuals with diabetes should work closely with a dietitian and other members of their care team to learn how to adhere to a healthy meal plan that won’t result in blood sugar spikes. If you have diabetes, it’s important to pay attention to portion size. Ask for a takeout box and place half of a large portion size in it before you even begin eating. Scrutinize the menu and select foods that are grilled, baked, broiled, or poached, and avoid fried foods.
