Hello Everybody! Welcome to the new blog page of Save Our Sexy!
Whether you are a frequent visitor to the site or a first-timer, this blog will provide you with new information weekly on how to better understand pre-diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, how to live a healthier lifestyle, and how to make it EASY! Now I know what many of you are thinking - something along the lines of "it's too hard," "I don't have the time," or "I don't think it's that important to change my life just to prevent/manage diabetes." However, I promise those things are not true! By slowly educating yourself and those around you and by making small changes over time, you can begin to take steps down the road to total health.
Now if you're wondering who the person is behind the screen giving you advice, I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself to you. My name is Stephanie and I am from a town north of Chicago, IL. I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa in Health Promotion with a minor in behavior change/psychology. Currently, I am working on my Master's degree in dietetics (nutrition) at Indiana State University and I am a Certified Health Education Specialist. I am passionate about a variety of nutrition-related conditions including diabetes counseling, eating disorders, and designing community/nutrition programs and services that everyone can benefit from.
At least once a week (if not more often), I plan to post new information to introduce you to carbohydrates, healthy fats, pre-diabetes, and Type 2 Diabetes. I also plan to provide you with modified recipes that are healthier (but just as delicious!) and activities to help prevent and manage pre-diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Please remember that this page is for YOU and YOUR life, so I am open to any and all suggestions you may have for new blog posts! If there is something you'd like me to write about or questions that you'd like me to answer, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
