March is National Nutrition Month, an annual observance dedicated to educating the public about the importance of healthy eating. And it’s not just about losing weight. While it’s no secret that what you eat can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight, as well as lower your cholesterol, a healthy diet can also improve your mood, concentration skills, and productivity. Along with physical activity, it’s a key ingredient in the recipe for being your best self.

It’s also true that no one diet is right for everyone. It’s about eating a variety of foods from all food groups with the right amount of nutrients to maintain your health and energy. With that goal in mind, log in to Call to Health* and check out these challenges and coaching programs to help you develop a healthy diet and stick to it:

  • Registered Dietician Consultation challenge (100 points): Consult with a network registered dietitian who can help you set and meet nutrition goals. The Medical Plan covers consultations with a network registered dietician, and there’s no cost to you if your body mass index (BMI) is 30 or more. Regular plan provisions (copays, deductibles, and/or copayments) apply if your BMI is less than 30.
  • Ignite Your Life Coaching programs (300 points each): Coaching programs are designed to equip you with tools to move you toward lifelong change. There’s no cost to you whether you participate in one-on-one telephone coaching that’s customized for you, or group coaching by live and recorded webinars on topics including
    • Going Vegetarian;
    • Mission Nutrition; and
    • Mood and Food.
