T2 Diabetes Prevention Program
About the course
CDC-recognized lifestyle change program!
You’ll get a full year of support and learn how to eat healthy, add physical activity to your routine, manage stress, stay motivated, and solve problems that can get in the way of your goals. This program is proven to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Participants who lost 5-7% of their body weight and added 150 minutes of exercise per week cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 58% (71% for people over 60 years old).
During the first half of the program, you will learn to:
Eat healthy without giving up all the foods you love
Add physical activity to your life, even if you don’t think you have time
Deal with stress
Cope with challenges that can derail your hard work—like how to choose healthy food when eating out
Get back on track if you stray from your plan—because everyone slips now and then
In the second half of the program, you will enhance the skills you’ve learned so you can maintain the changes you’ve made. These sessions will review key ideas such as tracking your food and physical activity, setting goals, staying motivated, and overcoming barriers. The lifestyle coach and small group will continue to support you. You may learn some new information, too
The program runs for 1 year.
During the first 6 months of the program, you will meet about once a week.
During the second 6 months, you’ll meet once or twice a month.
You may think you learned enough in the first 6 months and can skip the second half of the program. But you’d be cheating yourself!
Making lifestyle changes is an ongoing process. Staying in the program for the full year is essential to help you stick to new habits and avoid slipping back into old habits. And if you have not reached your goals in the first half of the program, your lifestyle coach and other group members can help you succeed.
