As you make your New Year’s Resolutions this year, we want to help! Not only do we help you get the medical care and preventive care that keep you healthy, we also want to help you make healthy life choices.
A healthy diet and good nutrition can both help you be the best that you can be, a key part of making healthy life choices.
- Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits can reduce the risk of heart disease, including heart attack and stroke
- Eating a diet rich in certain vegetables and fruits may protect against certain types of cancer
- Diets rich in healthy fiber can reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and Type 2 diabetes
- Eating vegetables rich in potassium can lower blood pressure, decrease bone loss, and the risk of kidney stones
We know that knowing what to eat or finding healthy recipes can be hard. But making small changes in diet can affect your health in a big way, and we have people to help.
Members can call our Quality & Medical Management Department at 1-800-851-3379, ext. 8112 for more information. You can also check this blog regularly, follow our Twitter and Facebook for weekly recipes, or look at our Pinterest for hundreds of recipes and resources.
Getting In Shape
Exercise is also an important part of being the healthiest you can be. Regular physical activity provides a variety of benefits, like:
- Controlling your weight
- Reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease
- Reducing your risk of Type 2 diabetes
- Reducing your risk of some cancers
- Strengthening your bones and muscles
- Improving your mental health and mood
- Improving your ability to do daily activities or prevent falls as an older adult
- Increasing your chance of living longer
Clearly fitness can improve your health, but we know that gym memberships and workout equipment can be expensive.
That’s why we have teamed up with a number of gyms and fitness locations to give our members discounted memberships and rates. Look at that list and find a location that fits into your budget.
