You are not powerless outside the kitchen. Remember to select meals that are prepared using healthy cooking techniques, such as broiling, roasting or grilling. Ask for substitutions when appropriate. Dining out should be an enjoyable experience, but should not negatively impact your blood sugars or weight.
