Low-glycemic and low-carbohydrate foods are your best bet. Some examples: meat (any type), hard cheese, eggs, and moderate amounts of non-starchy vegetables, like broccoli, mushrooms, cauliflower, and asparagus.
Soft cheeses, tree nuts (almonds, macadamias, pecans, walnuts), seeds, and low-carbohydrate dairy (cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream) can be eaten in smaller quantities.
Foods to restrict or avoid right now would be bread, rice, tortillas, corn, oats, other grains, and sugar.
Drink lots of water. If your blood sugar isn't dangerously high, some exercise may help.
Boiled or broiled chicken breasts Lean beef Lean pork Broccoli without cheese sauce Broiled fish.
if you eat, avoid fried foods. Go for broiled or boiled. BurgerKing burgers are flame broiled, and are better than McDonalds or Wendy's (which are fried). Take the top off hte bun, and eat it with a fork. No french fries; eat a 1/2 order of onion rings. Drink water instead of colas or tea.
Red Lobster has good broiled entries, but stay away fronm the clam chowder. Get vegetable sides, or rice pilaf.
No chinese food -- too much sodium. Mexican tends to be high in sodium, too. Eat more beasn, less rice.
General rules: Go for lean meats Go for broiled, boiled, or flame broiled instead of fried or deep fried. Try to get steamed veggies. Avoid potatoes of all types. Avoid cheese and/or cream sauces like Alfredo. Avoid cream based soups. Ask the server what BROTH (water) based soups they have. Anything with tomatoes (marinara sauce, pizza) tends to have a lot of sugar to counteract the natural acidity of tomatoes. Tomatoes in salads or on sandwiches are OK. Vinegar and oil dressing is better than blue cheese or thousand island.
Italian food is probably NOT your best choice: Cheeses, creasm sauces, and marinaras.
