Some suggestions to control your diet while having Chinese food:
To have the Chinese food in a healthier way first point to remember is avoid the fried food or atleast avoid deeply fried food because deep fried dishes can be packed with more than 1000 calories and about 70 grams of fat. If possible the food you order keep it brown and steamed that is order brown rice instead of white rice for extra fiber and don't order fried rice instead order steamed rice.
When ever you have Chinese food always keep a watch on the sauce, just don't jump on it because in a cup and a half a typical brown sauce contains about 255 calories and 7.5 gram fat. While a black bean sauce contains about 360 calories and 30g fat per serving.
Always cut the crispies whether its colorful shrimp toast or crunchy Chinese noodles since they've all been fried and just a single cup of chow mein noodles has 237 calories, while 3 pieces of shrimp toast contains 222 calories.

At last you can control your diet by counting calories and then having food or doing some activities regularly like walking, jogging or doing exercises in gym.
