Slim women shop the perimeter -- with caution Shopping only the outside aisles of the store is another classic rule of healthy grocery shopping, but it doesn't work as well as it used to. "It's a good idea," says McGee. "But supermarkets are getting savvy -- they're putting tempting things around the perimeter that you wouldn't normally find there." Take, for example, the cake and whipped cream strategically placed next to the strawberries in the produce section. You're there to buy berries, but wouldn't strawberry shortcake be even better? So, try to stick to your list and only buy the items that really belong in the perimeter of the store. And remember that the middle rows aren't completely off limits -- there are so many great beans, grains, and frozen options you don't want to skip.
