TAKE SMALL STEPS
 TO PREVENT:
TYPE 2 DIABETES

STEP 1:  Choose To Move

Adding 30 minutes of walking into your daily routine can help you feel better and get healthier.  Walking 10 minutes at a time is a great way to start -- it's simple and inexpensive.  Work your way up to 5 days a week and you'll be on the road to a healthier you.   

STEP 2:  Balance Your Plate

Making healthy food choices and cutting down on the amount of food you eat will help manage your weight and prevent Type 2 Diabetes.  Choose foods that are lower in fat.  Try a new fruit or vegetable each week.  Make sure you always have a healthy snack with you in case you get hungry, like a piece of fresh fruit, a handful of nuts, or low-fat yogurt.
