New Diabetes Prevention Sessions starting in Bonita Springs

by Andrew Bramlett

 

If you're at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can make small, measurable changes that can reduce your risk and help you live a happier, healthier life.

Change is tough-we can help. New classes start November 7th, 2017!

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is based on the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and supported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Diabetes Prevention Program has shown that with lifestyle changes and modest weight reduction, a person with pre-diabetic symptoms can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. The program strives to help participants achieve two primary goals:

  • Reduce body weight by 7%
  • Engage in regular physical activity
 

HOW IT WORKS

The YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program is a 12-month program developed to reduce the risk of diabetes in individuals showing pre-diabetic symptoms. Each week’s one-hour session is facilitated by a trained Lifestyle Coach and will cover nutrition, physical activity and behavior modification to help participants achieve the program’s two main goals. Sessions will guide participants in ways to eat healthy while eating out, manage stress, and stay motivated after the program’s completion.
