On the ninth day of ShopWell we’re all about prevention!
Roughly 68 million Americans have prediabetes … that’s roughly 1 in 3 adults. And many people are undiagnosed. Prediabetes means you have the change to make lifestyle changes that will improve your health and prevent you from developing a chronic disease (diabetes). The changes seem relatively simple – lose weight and be physically active. Life is busy and it can be hard to follow a healthy diet and fit in the recommended amount of exercise. ShopWell can help you manage prediabetes by helping you understand what you’re buying and discover foods that are a better fit for you and your health goals. Half the battle to preventing diabetes is changing your diet to support weight loss.
Select the Prediabetes goal in the ShopWell app and then start scanning your food (or use the My Grocery Purchases feature to score all your purchases at once). Look for scores that are green indicating they are a good fit for you and your health goals. Check out the recommendations and trade ups to see if there are better alternatives to your less healthy favorites. Making better food choices will help support you in achieving your diet goals and not becoming another diabetes statistic.
