Don’t go grocery shopping right after exercise or a work out–your body needs rest and food.  Plan the food ahead of time–the danger is that you’ll end up shopping at the grocery store longer than you expect, buying more than you expect, delaying your rest and food while expending more energy.

Don’t go to the grocery store while hungry–again, your body needs food so you should plan ahead for your own hunger. Shopping while hungry results in strange combinations of foods and impulse buys that waste money and aren’t healthy–sound decisions are better made while not starving.
