* Reduce salt and sugar.


* Do not eat too much sweets and sugars.


* Drink milk daily to maintain healthy bones and teeth.


* Maintain drinking fluids, especially water, at a rate of 8 cups per day.


* Eat brown or whole wheat bread and whole grains.

* Eat low-calorie snacks between main meals.
