Tips from the American Diabetes Association on Enjoying the SuperBowl Party Food without Consequences

Wait to see all the hors d'oeuvres that are available and then decide to have the two that look the best to you. Pick the most healthful choices-shrimp cocktail, meat or vegetable skewers, and sushi.

Check Out all the Food before Deciding

Survey the entire table before you take any food. Decide what foods are worth eating and what can be ignored, and then stick to that decision. Why waste calories on foods that don't bring you pleasure? Fill an appetizer plate with your favorite vegetables and enjoy. Take a small spoonful of dip or skip it entirely. At the buffet, concentrate on vegetables and greens; make lean proteins and starches your smallest portions. Select chicken, meat, fish, or pork that is broiled, grilled, roasted, or seared. Save your calories, so you can later enjoy other foods that are more nutritious. Eat your calories instead of drinking them. Stick to lower calorie or calorie-free drinks. Enjoy your favorite treats but take a small portion Watch your portion sizes. Allow yourself to have a piece of cake, decadent chocolate, or a delicious pastry-factored into healthful eating and living, you can include these as part of a good diet.
