Make a Healthy Game Plan for Super Bowl Partying

By Robert Preidt

FRIDAY, Feb. 1, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Chips, dips, wings and other fatty and salty things -- Super Bowl parties can be a challenge for people with diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, an expert warns.

"For people with diabetes, the goal is to keep the carbohydrates down -- and encourage more of the protein-rich foods -- to enhance satiety," said Jo Ann Carson, dietician-nutritionist at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

If you have diabetes and are going to a Super Bowl party, find out if it's going to be a high-carb affair. If so, take your own dishes or coordinate with others to make sure there are healthier food choices, Carson suggested in a medical center news release.

People with diabetes should eat slowly in order to limit how much they consume, and should get up and walk around during each commercial break, she advised.

People with high blood pressure, meanwhile, should focus on fruits and vegetables and avoid salty snacks, dips and sauces.

If you're hosting or attending a party, your healthiest bets are:

  • Salad fixings, such as greens, sprouts, mushrooms, onions, peppers, radishes and tomatoes, with sugar-free and low-calorie dressings.
  • Crunchy vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus and cucumbers.
  • Drinks such as water, unsweetened tea, coffee and calorie-free diet sodas.
  • Proteins such as grilled fish, skinless chicken or turkey, and/or soy-based "veggie" burgers.
  • And low/nonfat dairy products, including nonfat cheeses, yogurts and skim milk.

Foods that you should have sparingly include: fruits and vegetables with edible skin (such as apples, corn and beans) and those with edible seeds (such as berries); whole grain rice, pasta, breads and crackers; beans/legumes such as kidney, pinto or black beans, chickpeas and lentils; and unsalted nuts.

It's a good idea to avoid candies and desserts, potato chips, high-fat dips and crackers, regular sodas, alcohol and sweetened beverages.
