You are what you eat, right? But how do your choices affect how long you live and, maybe more importantly, how well you live?

Michele Jachim is a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Diabetes Educator with Florida Hospital, and she says that 79 million people in America have something called prediabetes — signs and symptoms that they may be on their way to the very serious disease of diabetes. And a large number of those people are over the age of 50.

The disease is on the rise, but there are small changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle that could help you drive it away. Real foods (not processed, natural foods) and a balanced diet are important, but there are a few other secrets to learn.

Find out why Jachim says there are no off-limits foods, and what symptoms you can start looking for today to see if you might be in danger.
