In brief: Yes!

[1] eat whole grains.
[2] avoid refined sugar roller coaster. [3] eat omega-3's [salmon, ground flaxseed]. [4] drink lots of water [5] avoid caffeine and alcohol. [6] limit extra salt, salty processed foods. [7] graze: eat smaller portions throughout the day instead of three big meals. [8] get moving 30-60 minutes every day [ok: not eating but still key]. Good luck!
