Help Us Celebrate National Healthy Lunch Day!

screen-shot-2016-11-10-at-10-58-03-am

This November 15, join us in our celebration of National Healthy Lunch Day as part of American Diabetes Month®. Commit to eating a healthy meal on this day—and every day—and encourage others in your life to do the same.

In addition, we know how important it is for people with diabetes to eat a healthy meal to maintain their blood glucose levels. As part of American Diabetes Month, we are sharing stories of real people with diabetes through our campaign theme, This Is Diabetes™. For National Healthy Lunch Day, we are encouraging those of you in the diabetes community to take a photo of what a healthy lunch means to you.

Participating is easy. We encourage you all to snap a photo of your healthy lunch and share on social media using the official hashtags #HealthyLunchDay and #ThisIsDiabetes. We’ve also provided free resources—including recipes, tip sheets and infographics to share with family and friends.

Join us for a healthy lunch on November 15!

Your path to good health just got a lot easier.

Just enter some basic health information and the award-winning My Health Advisor very accurately calculates your risk for:

  • type 2 diabetes
  • heart disease
  • stroke.

Then, once My Health Advisor calculates your personal risk, you can quickly and easily see the difference simple lifestyle changes—such as losing weight or quitting smoking—can make in your overall risk.

You will receive a personal action plan outlining suggestions for lowering your risk for these deadly diseases. When you’re done, you can print out your results.

You can even take them with you to your next checkup and discuss them with your doctor.
