Beachbody and Kathy Smith’s Healthy Approach To Managing Type 2 Diabetes
Posted Nov 13 2008 12:00am
What do , Kathy Smith and the American Diabetes Association have in common? Both are concerned for the 80+ million people who are pre-diabetic or have type-2 diabetes. And they have worked to create something incredibly special with Kathy Smith. In my opinion…life changing!
Every 21 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes. The good news is that Beachbody® has a fun, easy-to-use lifestyle approach that can help manage type 2 diabetes.
If you’ve been searching for a way to help get you and your family on the path towards a more active and healthy lifestyle and help reduce the risks of getting type 2 diabetes, keep reading.
Kathy Smith’s Project:YOU! Type 2™is a brand-new program from one of the most trusted names in health and fitness. This all-in-one healthy solution emphasizes lifestyle changes, including education on healthy eating coupled with regular physical activity. And it’s designed to produce long-term health benefits while helping you lose weight. Did you know that being at your ideal weight can help reduce the risks of getting type 2 diabetes? And if you have type 2, it can make a big difference in managing your blood glucose.
Kathy Smith’s Type 2 takes the guesswork out of how to help prevent and control type 2 diabetes by providing an easy-to-follow, step-by-step nutrition plan and exercise program that works for all fitness levels! It allows you to take charge of weight control, blood glucose management, and carbohydrate counting with mouthwatering real food and fun exercise programs perfect for every level of fitness. The Good2Eat! Cookbook will teach you when to eat as well as what to eat. Choose from a preplanned menu, use the Good2Eat! Mix-and-Match Meal Cards to create your own daily menu from a selection of meals and snacks, or delve into some delicious new recipes for entertaining. The exercise program focuses on the three key elements of fitness—cardio, strength training, and flexibility/relaxation—to help you get moving and see results. Take control of your life back! And, most importantly, there’s even a combined program guide and daily journal, where you can write down your meals, snacks, and workouts to help you stick with the program and track your progress everywhere you go.
In fact, this amazing program was developed in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association® (ADA), the leading source of trusted information about diabetes. This is a major triumph for Beachbody in the fitness world.
Special guest speaker at the 2008 Coach Summit in Anaheim, CA, Francine Kaufman, M.D., former president of the ADA and director of the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, stated some alarming statistics about type 2 diabetes, such as the fact that she “had to order new scales in order to weigh children over 300 pounds,” and how “fat around your waist doesn’t just sit there. It’s metabolically active, secreting things into your systems that lead to all kinds of disease.”
Yes, diabetes is a serious problem in this country. But even small actions taken each day have a cumulative effect, ultimately yielding big rewards. What’s more, unlike most medications, the side effects that come with healthy living include a better body, more energy, and a reduced risk of getting many health conditions including type 2 diabetes—and the complications of diabetes, such as cardiovascular, kidney, and eye disease.
As Team Beachbody Coaches, our efforts are endorsed by the American Diabetes Association and we can participate in the Step Out Walks and other events.
Even better in my opinion, we can share the new Kathy Smith Project: You Type 2 which is designed to be used by people with diabetes or who are pre-diabetic. Over 80 million people’s quality of life can be improved or likely more important, who might just be able to prevent getting a lifelong disease.
Whatever choice you make as to how you can get involved, please make that choice. Whether you share this program with those you love or start this program in November, diabetes is a curse, but it is also an opportunity to be healthier while living with diabetes or, if you are fortunate, to make healthy lifestyle choices and prevent the onset of diabetes.
