6. Support instead of sabotage

Once you’ve set your sights on losing weight, don’t set traps for yourself, says Blumer, who has also written Diabetes Cookbook for Canadians for Dummies. One example: Don’t stock your kitchen with the wrong kinds of snacks. “A lot of people have kids, and keep cookies and ice cream in the house,” he notes. “This may act as a temptation for the person living with diabetes.”

But don’t put such tight limits on treats that you feel deprived. “You’ll let loose and eat five pieces of cake.” When you’re hungry between meals, choose healthy snacks like fresh fruit, multigrain toast or veggie sticks with low-fat cream cheese, and allow yourself other goodies in moderation.
