Which of these is not a healthy diabetes-prevention strategy?

Super-sizing your lunch

When creating a healthy lifestyle that minimizes your risk for diabetes, super-sizing your meals isn’t a smart option. The best strategy is to choose a meal that is full of useful nutrients and offers something from all of the important food groups.

Some other tips for fighting diabetes include eating the same amount of food at each meal, eating meals at about the same times every day and eating smaller meals (including 1–3 snacks) daily. If you have the option, always choose whole grains, whole vegetables and fruits instead of processed, convenience foods such as breakfast cereals, chips, canned soups and prepackaged dinners.
