March 26 is American Diabetes Association® Alert Day®. We asked Slimming World, a National Sponsor of the American Diabetes Association®, to tell us more.

Diabetes is a deadly disease that currently affects nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States. Another 79 million Americans have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

“At my heaviest weight I’d been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and the condition was steadily worsening. After losing 85lbs with Slimming World my confidence and physical health have improved dramatically and I feel great. My doctor has even reduced my diabetes medication – she told me that I’m the only person in her diabetes clinic to have their medication reduced. I’m hoping that it can stop altogether eventually!” Barrie Walters

Even a weight loss of 10-15lbs can make a big difference toward improving health and reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And with Food Optimising – Slimming World’s famous eating plan – that means weight loss without hunger and without missing out on your favorites!

If you love Chinese takeout then you’ll love our sweet and sour pork noodles – chopsticks at the ready…

A delicious dressing packs extra flavor into this light salmon dish.

Heat up the kitchen with a spicy and satisfying vegetarian chili that will fill up your whole family and leave everyone feeling satisfied.
