Check your weight or blood sugar lately? Yea, it's absolutely out of whack for many people. But you can easily improve it. Here's how…

Remember the good old days when we could eat anything we wanted and not worry about the long-term effects? Yea, those days were great, but they are long gone and you're now paying the price.

However, you can take 5 minutes of your time and download a mobile app to manage your weight and encourage healthy habits to prevent the onset of diabetes. It even comes with a Fitbit flex and smart connected Scale at no cost to you! Yes, instead of being at a high risk of developing diabetes (86 million Americans are), you can take simple, daily steps using a coaching app with no costs. That's the trick, almost no effort.

Why am I telling you to do this? Because I am a huge proponent of anything that helps improve my health without much effort, and you should be too.

Here's how it works: you download the Lark mobile app on your cell phone and tell the text-based nurse your goals. That's it. It's completely free to open, and you can enjoy the impact of having a personalized diabetes prevention coach right on your phone.

If your doctor asked you, "Do you want to lower your risk of diabetes?" you'd say yes, right? Think of it like this.

Who Should Use the App?

This is the perfect app for you if any or all of the following are true:

  1. You are over 30 years of age.
  2. You have a BMI (Body-Mass-Index) over 26;
  3. You know you should lose some weight, and know that having excess weight puts you at risk of diabetes.
  4. You have Anthem or BlueCross BlueShield insurance.

These health plans make the Lark app available to you at no cost, along with a smart connected Scale and a Fitbit flex! If you ever feel like you don't get the most from the hard-earned money that you spend on your health insurance, imagine having a nurse available to you by text who coaches you in a personalized manner?


Considering it takes just 5 minutes and you'll reap the benefits forever without much effort, this is a no-brainer.

So many people focus on making huge changes in their lives to improve their health. I prefer making smart, small changes every day. Using this app to prevent diabetes fits that description perfectly.
