Did you know that your risk of hospitalisation with flu-like illnesses is up to six times higher if you have diabetes,1 and twice as likely if you are overweight or obese?2
It seems that especially since covid, we essentially know that being overweight or diabetic is bad for us and can lead to more serious illness. But many of us still don’t seem motivated to do something about it. It is estimated that 1 in 3 adults have an issue with their blood sugar and are at higher risk for diabetes and that poor diet is the leading cause.3
The intent is often there, but the temptation is too. The good intentions of ‘starting next week’ never materialise and instead, we feel bad about being unable to make the changes we know we need to feel better and to protect our health. It’s just easier to grab a takeaway and pretend it’s not a problem.
A lot of breaking bad habits and forming new ones is about reframing those conversations we have with ourselves and making small and sustainable changes. Adio teaches you simple ways to change how you think about health and small and easy ways to do better at the things that are important to you.
If you feel ready to give 30 days of your life to a bigger challenge, we have the Adio Refresh plan – a month’s worth of healthy eating to help you beat sugar and junk food cravings for good, by enjoying healthy, whole, real food that is easy to prepare and tastes delicious. Our recipe area features even more recipes to follow, regardless of whether you are following the Refresh plan or not. Just swapping out one or two meals a week can help you to appreciate the power that good nutrition has to make you feel great.
We show you ways to move more and eat better and have classes, support and a wealth of both ancient and modern, and Western and Eastern approaches to eating better to feel better.
