Supermarket tips – 5 ways to stay slimmer

I just finished watching a show on the History Channel about supermarkets… and all the things they do to entice you to buy more.

Here are some things I do, and recommend that you do to keep out of trouble in the supermarket:

  • Make a list before you go… and stick to it!
  • Eat before you go to the store, so that you’re less likely to be seduced by the sights and aromas in the store.
  • Shop the periphery (fresh foods, produce), and avoid the aisles (processed foods).
  • Try not to bring kids, or shop at a store that has checkout lines that don’t feature candy.
  • Buy some frozen veggies; even though I prefer fresh, fresh produce may go bad before you get to eat it.

  1. And don’t go the the grocery store to cool off when your A/C at home is broken. (You can guess how I know this.)
