Dining with Diabetes returns in November with four weekly classes in the Kendall Anderson Nutrition Center that combine nutrition information and social support with meal planning and hands-on cooking. Dinner is included each week in addition to a program manual and pedometer.
“I was surprised at all the foods I was allowed to eat and still control my blood sugar,” one past participant commented.
“Making the food myself taught me a lot about how to use ingredients and how to portion out my meals,” another said.
Other comments from participants included:
“I lost weight and was able to stop taking my diabetes medicine!”
“The information was really practical, and I was able to go home and actually do it.”
This program is especially helpful for anyone with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. You’ll explore realistic changes you can make to your diet and physical activity habits to feel better and control diabetes without it controlling you.
