Have a protein for each meal

Having a protein at breakfast, lunch, and dinner can help to keep your blood sugar balanced. There are studies out there that say adding proteins to a diet help people who have type-2 diabetes. Additionally, weight management and cardio health support when eating proteins.

Eat the rainbow

This phrase reminds everyone to eat veggies and fruits. With antioxidants like anthocyanins and carotenoids, this part of your diet is essential.

Different nut varieties

Whether you eat Brazilian nuts or almonds, nuts help with blood sugar. Eat more nuts instead of french fries, desserts, and processed meats.

Fiber life

The more fiber you can get in your diet, the better. Fiber is perfect for helping blood cholesterol. In turn, you can ward away heart disease, type-2 diabetes, and obesity. Some of the best fibers include pulses, beans, veggies, and whole grains.

Drink a ton of water

Every day, drink as much water as possible. This can help you maintain your body weight. To prevent dehydration, you can drink plain water, or you can put in some mint leaves or citrus slices.
