NRG Foods, makers of the gluten free, low carb protein bar "NRG Bite", is sponsoring the FitMeT1D Challenge! The Fit Me T1D Challenge is the biggest Type 1 only online fitness challenge that has helped hundreds of type 1 diabetics lose thousands of pounds over the last 3 years. 

NRG Co-Owner Chris Ruden has created this challenge in order to facilitate and educate other Type 1 Diabetics on how to engage in a healthier lifestyle through fitness and dieting. Both of these are critical factors in maintaining stable blood glucose levels and relieving the mental stress associated with this unique autoimmune disease.    

What is Type 1 Diabetes? Wait……There are different types of Diabetes? Yep! In fact there are. This is a common question asked and an enormous misunderstanding when discussing T1D because most people are unaware of the inherent characteristics that widely separate the two.

Here is a quick synopsis of both:  

type 1 diabetes vs type 2 diabetes


So now that we have a bit of information about both Types of Diabetes…..why did NRG Foods sponsor this event?  

As a company that prides itself on being founded and operated by a majority of Type 1 Diabetics, NRG Foods wanted to engage with other T1D’s and help better their quality of life by any means possible. We wanted participants to have exclusive access to quality protein bars that are conscious of diabetic concerns.

If you have type 1 diabetes and want to try a diabetic chef-inspired protein bar that will replace sugary snacks then here is 20% off your first order with code: "RENEWREFUEL".
