Not Confused Any More

Patty

Before the program, I was very confused about what to eat to control my diabetes.. I thought that if I lost weight I’d be ok but now I realize there is more to it. Now I’m more aware of how what I eat affects my blood sugar... After the program, I’m more mindful about what I eat and when. Your classes saved me from going in circles with my health.

A1c reduced

- Judy

I had my doctor's appointment today. A1C down to 7.1 (I wanted it lower), and weight loss of 12 pounds. He was really pleased with my progress. I told him I owed it to you, and your Diabetes Course. I am motivated to keep up with healthy eating!

I understand my diabetes

Dan

You made me feel like I am not alone. You are getting through to me”

DON'T WAIT ANY LONGER
TO LEARN WHAT WORKS FOR YOU

THE ANSWER IS....

  • A 6 month program that helps you change the way you eat and move one step at a time.

  • A way of eating that gets results. It is not meal plan or a prescription. It is learning about what works for you. This is your life!

  • Tools and ideas that will help you manage your diabetes now and for years to come.

  • Not just following a diet but learning how you can adapt and manage any situation.

You don't have to do this alone

During our Q + A sessions, you can connect with other people who also have type 2 diabetes who are going through a similar experience and further tailor the recommendations to your lifestyle. During your personal meeting with the dietitian you get one-on-one suggestions tailored just to you

Eating for Diabetes Can Be Hard

FAQ

  • Why is this program six months long?

    It takes time to go through the material, test it out, ask questions, and new things come up all the time.

  • What if I want to join, but the program seems too expensive for me right now?

    Take advantage of the monthly payment program. The monthly cost is less than most gym memberships or eating out just one or two meals.

  • Why is managing my diabetes so important.

    Keeping your A1c below 7.0 has been shown to help reduce your risk of diabetes related complication like heart disease, kidney disease, nerve damage, stomach issues and more. AND you will probably feel better, less tired and more energetic.

  • I’m really busy with work, family, and everything else on my ‘to do’ list. Will the program still work for me?

    It take up to an hour a week to watch the videos. They are recorded so you can watch them when it is convenient to you.

  • What if I’m not ready to follow a different eating plan for six months?

    This program is for you because it is slow, not overwhelming way to slowly change how you eat.

  • How long do I have access to the program?

    You have access to the program for 6 months. You can download all the handouts and you can watch the videos over and over again.

  • Will I get access to the entire program all at once?

    Great question! This program is designed to help you stay calm and not overwhelmed with too much information. Currently there are 6 Core modules and 6 Living with Diabetes Modules. You must go through each Core Concept module in order, 1 per week, while the other modules are available as soon as the program begins.

  • What if I want a refund?

    I want you to feel satisfied with the program. You have 7 day money back guarantee. No questions asked (although I'll be curious). Just email me at julie@juliehagan.com

  • What else will I need to successfully go through the program?

    Setting aside time each week to watch the videos and to download and complete the worksheet is important to being successful. Asking questions is also important. Take advantage of all the program offers you.
