Below is a testimonial from a recent Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes participant, Eileen:
My name is Eileen and I’m currently enrolled in the Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes program at Carolina Preserve.
To date I’ve lost and kept off 30 pounds.
Some of the tips that have helped me in this program: Early on we watched a video called 23 ½ hours. This video inspired me to be more active, as a way to improve my overall health. With this program I’ve been tracking what I eat daily on myfitnesspal.com and have been using my Fitbit to measure my active minutes daily.
Through this course, I’ve learned to read labels of the food choices I make, and have become more mindful of what I’m eating. Choosing fruits and vegetables and whole grains, eating out less often and monitoring how hungry I really am, these have all been helpful guidelines I’ve learned within this program. Also taking time to plan my meals for the week and preparing more meals at home.
I try to stay active, walking at least 10, 000 steps each day. And moving more- at least 30 active minutes each day.
Way to go, Eileen!
