Anchorage, United States
The Food for Life Diabetes Nutrition and Cooking Class is a community-based, national program designed by health professionals to aid people with diabetes to learn about the power of food to improve their health and wellness.
Launched in 2009, the Food for Life Diabetes Nutrition and Cooking Class is designed to bring a new, research-based, easy-to-follow approach to help people with diabetes in two significant ways:
- avoid preventable complications from the disease
- to reduce the need for medication(s).
Designed by physicians, diabetes educators, registered dietitians, and professional chefs, the goals of this program are to empower people with diabetes with information on how food choices promote, prevent, and treat type 2 diabetes and practical cooking skills for healthy and delicious meal preparation.
Each 2 hour class includes a nutrition video and discussion, followed by a cooking demonstration of 4 or 5 different foods. Attendees then have the opportunity to taste the food prepared in class.

Week 1: Introduction to How Foods Fight Diabetes
Week 2: The Power of Your Plate and Grocery Cart & Understanding Type 2 Diabetes
Week 3: Designing a Diet for Maximum Weight Control
Week 4: Using the Glycemic Index
Week 5: Keeping a Healthy Heart
