Top Restaurant Picks for People With Diabetes

Rotisserie Chicken with Fresh Steamed Veggies by Boston Market

A high-in-fat and high-in-carb protein consumption are not healthy for diabetics, but the right amount of protein is essential for your diet. Your body needs it in building, repairing, and maintaining tissues and organs. How much then is the right amount? This entirely depends on your body weight. For instance, if you weigh 60 kg, you should only consume a maximum of 48g of protein daily. You can calculate your daily protein requirements on your own. The formula is simple: 1 kilogram is equal to .8g of protein.

Speaking of protein; Boston Market’s Skinless Chicken is a good pick since it has extremely low carbs (8g). The meal is typically combined with steamed vegetables. You may also opt for additional 21g carbs by adding in a side corn. You can never go wrong with the right amount of protein and green!
