Reading Labels Diet Tip

I don't know how this will work for everyone but I am not at a point where I'm strong enough to totally give up sugar but one thing we (as a family) have done is to really read labels and we have almost eliminated High Fructose Corn Syrup after doing some research on the subject I've learned some of what it does to our body and how it increases obesity and diabetes (both run in my family). This is harder than I thought it would be because the stuff is every where from ketchup to breakfast cereals and yougurt :-/ I give myself extra time in the grocery store but I feel it's worth it...
We also try to really adhere to the half plate rule (fill half of you plate with fruits and veggies before you add anything else) it seems to be helping and it's pretty easy...
