1) Try going low carb.

“Eating a low carb diet can help improve glucose levels in individuals who are prediabetic or diabetic,” Schirmer says. The Keto diet is an extreme example of eating low carb, as it involves consuming only 50g of carbs or less per day. But Schirmer says that eating like this can be difficult to maintain, and suggests maintaining a minimum of 120 to 130g/day to get the benefits of a low carb diet and sustain it for longer periods of time.

2) Use herbs and spices.

Feldman recommends using herbs and spices to give food flavor, rather than butter, salt, or high fat marinades. Not only are they healthier, but they also have nutritional benefits. “Certain spices and herbs, like turmeric and ginger, can help fight inflammation,” she says. “Spices like cinnamon can help satisfy a sweet tooth, but unlike more sugary options, they won’t raise your blood sugar.” Other healthy spices options include garlic, cayenne pepper, and oregano.

3) Eat enough (good) protein.

“Studies show that protein has the best ability to provide a sense of satiety,” Schirmer says. Try adding good proteins like eggs, chicken breast, or fish to your diet. Fear recommends having fish, a great source of protein, at least twice a week because it’s also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have tons of health benefits.
