Hi! As the title says, my family has a history of heart problems and diabetes. My grandfather passed away from a heart attack when my dad was in middle school, and my dad also has diabetes.
I am very lousy when it comes to dieting (I blame my fast metabolism there was never any need to diet) but now that I'm getting older I'm starting to realize that I should watch what I eat. Especially because of my family's medical history.
I know the basics such as avoiding junk food, eating my vegetables and whatnot, but are there any other foods that I should avoid or try to eat more of?
I myself don't have diabetes but I would still like to start eating a diet that would help me prevent myself from developing diabetes. Any suggestions?
