Diabetes Prevention: 5 Tips for Truck Drivers

Rod – in the truck for 11 or more hours – is not overly time-consuming

  • Rod -For instance, I Was in Marianna, Florida at the Family Dollar distribution center and stuck there for 5 hours and had packed a cooler with healthy snacks that the program suggest. This is helpful especially when there are snack machines everywhere so it helps me know I am making healthier choices instead of chips and can definitely see improvement
  • CJ – how long on the program
  • Rod – 2 months and have lost about 20 pounds and feel better. They also emphasize also getting exercise like parking further away from the door at the truck stop and walking which has gotten easier and has been a blessing
  • Bill – is your health coach assisting you as you want?
  • Rod – they are very knowledgeable and it changes every day. They take your suggestions and make a plan for you. It is a trial and error and I understand it. I went from body slamming to changing gears literally. I have traveled in my day but now I travel and actually see the beauty of it all and enjoy it more and appreciate it through this program and rewarding
