Overwhelmed by the thought of overhauling your diet & lifestyle? Small changes can fend off Diabetes: 1) Give up soda (try green tea,H2O, unsweetened juice); 2) Move after meals (stroll); 3) Eat more "good" fat (Mediterranean diet); 4) Get up already (don't sit--move for 2 minutes every 1/2 hour); 5) Bulk up with strength training; 6) Savor your food (eat slowly with smaller portions).
