Most Thai food is very healthy, but quite high in carbs because so many dishes have rice noodles of some sort or white rice.
My favorite dish is pat woo sen with tofu. It has glass noodles and sauce, plus lots of fresh veggies (carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes), scrambled eggs, tofu and fresh herbs like mint and basil. I also love salad rolls--the kind that are not fried.
If it were me, I would just eat very low carb early in the day and then enjoy your Thai meal without worrying too much. Another strategy would be to eat half of your meal and have the rest boxed up. I would not order Pad Thai because it is sweeter than most Thai food and the ratio of noodles to veggies is higher, so it is very high in carbs. Go with something more adventurous!
