Although stir-fry entrées seem to be a good choice, it’s important to remember that these dishes are fried and contain a lot of fat.

Helpful Hints

  • For extra flavor with a steamed dish, see if they can steam some fresh ginger in with your choice of protein and/or veggies. It offers a burst of flavor without adding sugar, fat, salt or calories.
  • Order steamed brown or white rice instead of fried rice.
  • Pay attention to portion size. This is especially important in Chinese restaurants where you often get a large serving of Protein and Fast and Slow Carbs mixed together. When you first get your meal, ask the waiter to bring you a take-home container.
  • Choose a brown garlic or fish sauce over creamy white sauces.
