Healthy Habits

Use these tips to take charge of your health.

Eat healthy and get active.

Remember, it’s never too late to start healthier habits. A healthy eating routine and regular physical activity can help control your:

  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar
  • Cholesterol
  • Weight

By keeping these numbers in a healthy range, you can lower your risk of serious health problems like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Make eating healthy and being active part of your daily routine:

In addition:

  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation
  • If you smoke, make a plan to quit

Small Changes

Make small changes every day.

Small changes can add up to big results — like lowering your risk of type 2 diabetes or heart disease. Here are some examples of small changes you can make:

  • Take a walk instead of watching TV
  • Try a green salad instead of fries.
  • Eat 1-2 cups of vegetables per day – raw veggies and salad count
  • Drink water instead of soda or other sugary drinks
  • Keep coffee intake to 12 ounces per day
  • Cut back on fast foods
  • No skipping meals
  • Fruit 1-2 servings per day
  • Prepare simple meals, including a vegetable, high fiber carbohydrates, and a lean protein
