Dear Sushi-Mama,

Sushi can be GREAT to eat when you're dieting. It can also be disastrous, if you order poorly. First of all, start off with a nice sunomono salad (sliced cucumbers with rice vinegar -- very low in calories). Avoid mayo-laden items at all costs. Spicy tuna, spicy shrimp, California rolls, baked crab, and "dynamite" typically contain lots of mayo. If you order them, request light mayo or no mayo (if possible). Tempura is a bad idea. It's deep-fried. Do yourself a favor and forget it exists. Sushi pieces are good choices because they're low in fat -- and cut rolls can be healthy as well, if they contain veggies and fish, but no creamy sauces or fried ingredients. If you want to cut your carb and calorie intake, order half sushi and half sashimi (no rice), or simply hold the chopsticks in your left hand (pssst: that joke was for righties only).

Beware! Drinking carbonated soft drinks regularly (even diet ones) can contribute to the erosion of tooth enamel surfaces.
