Remember the two Ts.
Want to enjoy a glass of wine or beer (with your doctor’s approval, of course)? Consider the timing and the type. Even if your doctor said it was fine to have a glass of wine with dinner, it could still make your blood sugar go too low if you don’t have enough food in your stomach. So ask your server to bring your drink with your entrée so you’re not tempted to sip in advance. And the type? Think clear and white: Drier, lighter-colored drinks, such as dry white wine, champagne and vodka, have fewer carbs .
