Healthy Living Made Easy with New Diabetes Foodsmart e-Newsletter
Date:10/9/2007

American Diabetes Association and FoodFit.com team up to make food fun for those with diabetes

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For people with diabetes, the daily decisions they make about food can have an immediate impact on their health. The American Diabetes Association (ADA), together with The HealthCentral Network's FoodFit.com, launched Diabetes Foodsmart today, a new e-newsletter designed to bring the fun back to food for those with diabetes.

Based on the success of the book Diabetes Fit Food, written by FoodFit founder and president Ellen Haas and published this spring by ADA, the bi-weekly Diabetes Foodsmart e-newsletter offers a fresh, simple, seasonal approach to food with tips and recipes for a healthy lifestyle. The e-newsletter segments include:

-- Healthy Choices - This section helps readers pick foods that meet their nutritional needs and explains why those choices are healthy for people with diabetes because of the foods' nutrient values, carbohydrate and fat content, and more.

-- Meals to Savor - Nationally recognized chefs such as Alice Waters from Chez Panisse, Todd English of Olives, Annie Somerville from Greens and dozens more provide delicious recipes that meet ADA nutrition guidelines. Menus including appetizers, entrees, and salads, can be enjoyed by the entire family, not just the person with diabetes.

-- Live Your Life - This lifestyle section provides special guidance from the ADA for people with diabetes. The information assures readers that they can enjoy wonderful food while managing diabetes, and tells them how.

The newsletter will also include polls, top ten lists of favorite foods and ways to enjoy them, and other interactive elements. Each issue will focus on a seasonal theme, such as Late Summer Vegetables, Back to School, Tailgating, and the Holidays. In this way, the newsletter aims to provide information and ideas that fit into the reader's daily life.

"Enjoying food can be a real issue for people with diabetes," commented Ann Albright, Ph.D., RD, President, Health Care & Education, American Diabetes Association. "Diabetes Foodsmart provides a practical approach to incorporating good foods into an overall healthy lifestyle without losing any flavor."

"We are thrilled to bring this new e-newsletter to people with diabetes looking for delicious, healthy food," said Haas, former Undersecretary of Agriculture for Food, Nutrition and Consumer Services. "FoodFit.com is all about creating food experiences that help readers live healthy, enjoyable lives, and this newsletter aims to provide a unique solution for those with diabetes."
