Getting on track after festive food

Share this article

FOR many people there have been indulgences over Christmas with a little too much food and not enough exercise.

The first few months of the New Year are a time for getting things back on track, eating more healthily and taking more exercise.

Many of your readers will have diabetes and getting back on track is particularly important for them, whether they have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.

They have to manage their medications, diet and exercise all the time in order to stay well and we know that this can be difficult.

As a charity for people with diabetes, we have put together some helpful information leaflets, including our leaflets, Weight and Diet, Exercise and Your Heart and booklet Diabetes – Everyday Eating which provides inexpensive menus for breakfast, lunch and evening meal for 28 days to help people to know what they can eat, rather than what they can’t.

We hope that this information will be useful to your readers and will make getting back on track a little easier for them.

We are happy to send these publications free of charge. We are always here with a listening ear to offer support and understanding. Contact us on 01604 622837, email or write to IDDT, PO Box 294, Northampton NN1 4XS.
