November is National Diabetes Month. If you or a loved one has diabetes, you know how difficult this disease can be to manage. You obviously can’t stop eating, but what you eat when you have diabetes can have serious consequences.

We all know that fast food may be a hidden source of fat and excess sugar. And we probably all go to a fast food drive-through once in a while – right? While it may not be the best nutritious choice, you can make the choice a little bit safer and a little bit better if you AVOID certain choices and INCLUDE other choices.

Just as there are dieting myths that won’t die, there are fitness myths that seem to have a life of their own. When you read one thing, hear another from a good friend and see something else on TV, what should you believe?

FitFamily is here for you. Whether you are just joining, or have been using FitFamily for a while,
you’ll always find valuable information on the latest health trends, exercises,
and activities to help you stay at the top of your game.

OUR MISSION:  To prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
