If you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic medical condition or you’re at risk of developing one, sometimes you may feel like it’s out of your control. You know that healthy lifestyle choices are key, but creating healthy habits and sticking to them isn’t always easy.
This is where programs like Life Steps to Better Health can help. In fact, according to Kathy Mead, a registered dietitian who coaches the program, many people who participate in the program exceed the health goals they set.
Mead told us all about the Life Steps program on the For Health’s Sake podcast. Some of the things she explained include:
- What the Life Steps program is and what it’s based on
- Who can sign up for the program
- The main elements of the program
- What to expect from the program
- How long the program takes and why
