Don’t let grocery shopping sabotage your waistline. Plan your meals and snacks so you know exactly which items you will need to buy. Make a shopping list and stick with it. Don’t shop when you’re hungry. Instead, eat a healthy snack first to ward off temptation. And don’t shop when you’re sad, angry, or stressed. You may be more likely to reach for high-calorie comfort foods. Finally stick to the outer aisles; that’s where you’re most likely to find fresh, healthy foods.

It’s easier to eat healthy if you shop healthy.
