Dining out and take-aways

In many ways the flexibility of carbohydrate counting can make situations such as dining out, getting a take away, parties, barbeques and other social events easier to manage and less restrictive.

Take a moment to think about these social situations and how you have managed your Diabetes in the past. Is dining out a regular experience? If you were diagnosed as an adult and can remember back to before your diagnosis, how does dining out compare now? What problems come up if any at all?

Discuss your experiences further on the blog. You might want to chat about what you find challenging and any strategies you have used to overcome these difficulties.
