5. Eat Whole Grains

Consuming grains is necessary in the diet. The grains group consists of breads, pastas, rice, and many others.

When purchasing the food in the grocery stores, make sure the packaging on the product states that it is 100 percent whole grain. Whole grains contain more fiber than other grains and while there is more research needed as to why whole grains regulate blood sugar, some believe that it is because whole grains release sugar into the blood at a much slower rate than the regular grain options.
