Small Healthy Changes Make BIG Rewards!

South Central Kentucky Get Fit Wellness Challenge SCKY Get Fit would like to challenge you to include 30 minutes of physical activity into your daily life!

What’s The Fuss About Prediabetes

By Megan Givan, RD, LD, CDE Some people say they have a “touch of the sugar”. While the Southern expression sounds sweet, it implies prediabetes is not serious. Prediabetes happens when a person’s blood sugar level is above normal, but not so high to be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. The problem is: Prediabetes is likely to become Type 2 diabetes in 10 years or less without a change in lifestyle.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS FOR PREDIABETES?

GOOD NEWS!

There is good news if you are at risk or diagnosed with prediabetes. You may be able to slow or stop your body’s progression to Type 2 diabetes if you catch it early enough, and bring your blood • Extra Weight • Inactivity • Age sugar back to a normal level with healthy lifestyle changes — such as • Ethnicity • Family History eating healthy foods, including physical activity in your daily routine, • Lack of Sleep • High Blood Pressure and maintaining a healthy weight. • High Cholesterol Levels Here are some simple steps you can take: • Women Who had Gestational • Make healthy food choices such as fruits and vegetables, fish, Diabetes or Baby Weighing lean meats, dry beans, whole grains, and low-fat or skim milk and more than 9 lbs. cheese. • Choose water to drink. Sugar added drinks, such as soda, have empty calories and little nutrition. Try with a wedge of citrus. • Eat smaller portions. Make 1/2 your plate vegetables and fruits; 1/4 a whole grain, such as brown rice; and 1/4 a protein food, such as lean meat, poultry, fish, or dried beans. • Be active at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week to help you burn calories and lose weight. You don’t have to get all your physical activity at one time. Choose something you enjoy. Ask family to be active with you. • Do not worry if you can’t get to your ideal body weight. Losing even 10 to 15 pounds can make a huge difference in prevention. • To help you reach your goals, write down all the foods you eat and drink and the number of minutes you are active. Research proves those who follow this particular step have the best outcomes. Most people with prediabetes do not have any symptoms. Take the above risk test to find out your risk, and talk with your doctor. Your doctor can test your blood to find out if your blood glucose levels are higher than normal. START HERE QUESTION: Are You Under 45 Years of Age?

Q: Have you ever developed diabetes during pregnancy?

YES

YES Q: Does your mother, father, sister or brother have diabetes?

Q: At your height (see AtRisk Weight Chart), is your weight equal to or more than the at-risk weight?

LOW RISK: Right now your risk for having pre-diabetes or diabetes is low. But your risk goes up as you get older. Talk to your doctor about how to keep your risk low. AT RISK FOR PRE-DIABETES: You are at higher risk for pre-diabetes which means your blood glucose is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Talk to your doctor about ways to reduce your risk for diabetes. HIGH RISK: You are at higher risk for having Type 2 diabetes. However, only your doctor can tell for sure if you do have Type 2 diabetes. Talk to your doctor to see if additional testing is needed. Health & Activity Resource Guide • 2014

10 Tips for

Eating Out Healthier In today’s fast-paced world, most of us are going to eat out at times rather than cook a meal at home. With all of the high fat, high calorie options at many restaurants, it can be easy to pack on some extra pounds. So how do you eat out without blimping out?

Here are a few tips when eating out... 1. Look for red flags on the menu. If you see the words cream sauce, crispy, smothered, breaded, or fried, the food is likely high in fat and calories. Instead, choose those foods that are grilled, baked, broiled, or steamed. 2. Have a plan. If you decide on what healthy option you will order before you get to the restaurant, you’ll be less likely to be swayed by the advertisements on the menu. Also, place your order first. Then if your dining partners decide to go high fat, you won’t be tempted to jump on the band wagon. 3. Order a broth-based soup or salad as your first course. These are low calorie options that can help fill you up. 4. Choose a smaller meal. Instead of the gigantic cheeseburger, large fries, and drink, order a regular cheeseburger (think kid’s meal), small fry, and a sugar free drink such as water or a diet drink. 5. Ask for a to-go box when the server brings you your food instead of at the end of your meal. If you put half your meal in the to-go box right away, you will likely eat less. Out of sight, out of mouth! 6. Ask for dressings on the side and go for the light or low fat versions. A serving of regular ranch dressing has around 150 calories. Many restaurants give you four to five servings of dressing in your salad. That’s 600-750 calories from dressing! 7. Don’t be afraid to ask for a modified version of a menu item. Most restaurants will comply with your requests for no mayo, sauce, or butter. You can also request a broiled or grilled version of the fried foods in many restaurants. 8. Choose main dishes that are heavy on the veggies. Vegetables are virtually fat free, low calorie, and full of fiber. Ask for extra vegetables on your pizzas and sandwiches. 9. Look for the healthier sides. Most fast food restaurants offer healthier sides than French fries. Many will allow you to substitute a side salad, baked potato, or fruit for no extra charge. 10. Skip the buffets. The more options there are to choose from, the more likely we are to overeat, especially when portions are unlimited. Source: Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

Adopt the Four Healthy Habits of 5-2-1-0 to Keep You and Your Family Healthier! 5

Eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Fruits and veggies provide vitamins and minerals, important for supporting growth, development and optimal immune function. Eating enough fruits and vegetables may also help prevent weight gain and help promote weight loss success.

2

Limit screen time (television, computer, video games) to no more than 2 hours per day. Research has shown that the more time an individual spends in front of a screen, the higher the likelihood that person will be overweight or obese. Increased screen time has also been linked to shorter attention spans in children.

1

Get at least 1 hour of physical activity daily. Exercise helps to keep both the mind and body healthy by aiding in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, relieving stress, and keeping the body more flexible.

0

Eliminate sugar sweetened drinks. People who drink sugary beverages (soft drinks, kool aide, sweet teas/lemonades, etc.) tend to drink less water and milk and have more dental problems. Sugar sweetened beverages contribute “empty calories,” meaning they can contribute to weight gain, but do not provide any nutritional benefit. 10

Stress: How Can You Manage It? What is Stress? Stress, by definition, is the inability to cope with a threat (real or imagined) to your well-being, which results in a series of responses and adaptations by our bodies.

Long-term Stress is Bad for Your Health! Some experts say that stress may cause 50% of all diseases. Stress contributes to the first and second leading causes of death—heart disease and cancer. It is also a factor in migraines, digestive problems, mental illness, allergies, tooth decay, and the common cold. Take a look at your stress levels, what causes your stress, and what you can do about it.

Ways to Reduce and Manage Stress 1. Adjust your attitude. Sort out which problems you can solve, and work on accepting the things you can’t change. Quit worrying about the future. Concentrate on what you can do NOW. 2. Work it out! Exercise is a simple and popular stress reliever. The easiest way to get started is with brisk walking outdoors or on a treadmill. 3. The art of relaxation. Deep breathing you can do almost anywhere, anytime. Inhale through your nose as you count to four. Exhale slowly through your mouth as you count to eight, letting tension leave your body with your breath. 4. All you need is love. Research shows that people with good social connections enjoy better health. Touch, hug someone, hold hands, stroke a pet, or brush your hair. 5. Get some shut eye. Make yourself go to bed at a reasonable hour. 6. Reduce caffeine intake. Caffeine raises your blood pressure and increases secretion of adrenaline, a stress hormone. Slowly taper off caffeine by drinking a cup of decaf or herbal tea to substitute for your caffeinated cup. Managing and reducing your stress can greatly improve your health and make your life easier. Knowing how to manage your stress is the key to living a happier life, with fewer worries. Take advantage of these tips and see how much better your life can be with reduced stress.
