Always Bring A List To The Grocery Store
Believe it or not, shopping without a grocery list can impact your diabetes risk. Why? Because when you spontaneously shop, you’re more likely to buy unhealthy food. In 2016, an Australian survey found that three out of five people struggle to avoid junk food at the grocery store–even if they go there with healthy intentions.
Registered dietitian Barb Klingler says that a grocery list will prevent you from impulse-buying. Plan ahead to cook healthy meals filled with vegetables, Klingler says. These will reduce your blood sugar and lower your chances of diabetes.
