(HealthDay News) -- When you commit to healthy eating, it means more than choosing fresh veggies over French fries. It's changing the way you eat, too.

The American Diabetes Association offers these guidelines for healthy eating:

  • Choose a variety of healthy foods, including lean meats, fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains and non-fat dairy products.
  • Limit portion sizes.
  • Avoid eating too much of the same type of food.
  • Eat meals regularly throughout the day at evenly spaced intervals.
  • Don't skip any meal.
