1. Quench a craving
High blood sugar can suppress your sense of thirst, fooling you into thinking you’re hungry when all you really need is a drink. The next time you get a between-meal craving, have a glass of water and wait 20 minutes. If the urge to eat doesn’t subside, you’re legitimately hungry. Have a few apple slices dipped in peanut butter or some other healthful snack.
Tip: Sip a fruity black tea, either hot or iced. Besides hydrating you, there’s some evidence that black tea aids in controlling blood sugar.
