Go Red BetterU Program
Although preventable, heart disease remains the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S. Go Red For Women® is encouraging women to speak up for themselves by applying for the BetterU Challenge. The BetterU Challenge is a free, 12-week heart health makeover that can save lives. Powered by the American Heart Association’s research, BetterU provides guidance to transform overall health through small, simple choices.
Go Red BetterU is not about fad diets and new exercise trends, but rather a program that focuses on skills and information that help today’s busy women lead their own lives, only better. Fewer than half of American women maintain a healthy weight, keep a heart healthy diet and get regular physical activity. Furthermore, millions of women struggle to get motivated to begin a health regimen, feeling they are too tired or just don’t have time.
Go Red BetterU gives women an opportunity to speak up for themselves and achieve a noticeably better state of well-being and heart health in just 12 weeks.
Research shows that 80 percent of cardiac events in women are linked to poor choices, involving diet, exercise and smoking. This means women must make the right choices to live better and longer lives. Alarming statistics on women and heart disease include:
Go Red for Women hopes that BetterU will help connect women committed to making healthier choices every day.
The combined effect of even small choices can improve heart health and impact longevity.
