It's also important to watch your overall health, says Sandra Allonen, a registered dietitian with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. She recommends you:

  • Eat small, frequent meals.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Choose whole-grain, high-fiber foods and lean proteins to slow down digestion and keep your blood sugar levels stable.
  • Get regular exercise and plenty of sleep.
  • Manage stress.

"And keep a food journal where you write down food and beverages consumed, environmental issues, plus your sleep, stress, and exercise patterns," Allonen says. "Keep track of everything, because it's really an individual thing. You are your health care guardian."
