If you have type 2 diabetes, you’re not alone. More than 1.5 million Australians are currently living with the disease – and this is set to double in the next five to ten years.
The good news is that type 2 diabetes can be controlled. Eating well, exercising regularly and taking medication (where necessary) can make all the difference.
Our Diabetes Diet and Lifestyle Plan is an easy way to help manage and prevent type 2 diabetes. The guide was developed by our scientists and experts from the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute and includes an easy-to-follow meal plan, plus a range of diabetes-friendly recipes.
And to celebrate National Diabetes Awareness Week (14 – 20 July 2013) we have two copies of the book to give away, signed by the authors.
All you need to do is share your secrets to keeping healthy in the comments field below.
Here are some examples to get you thinking:
- Include more resistant starch in your diet by eating cold potato or pasta salad
- Choose high quality dark chocolate over milk chocolate for a sweet treat (enjoy in moderation)
- Trade your morning coffee break for a brisk walk
