Research indicates that whenever fast food is introduced into a population, risk of developing Type II Diabetes skyrockets. Yet the convenience and lower cost of fast food beckons to all of us once in a while.
If we should find ourselves in a fast food restaurant this week, let’s enter diabetes prevention mode by selecting healthiest items on the menu: Nothing fried. No gargantuan sugary sodas. No extra salt. Look for something with abundant lettuce and tomato in it. Throw away half the bun. Order a salad without the crouton pack. We’ll be giving a nod to personal diabetes prevention and supporting the culinary industry for which America is famous. WF!
