National Diabetes Prevention Program

The Problem!

 

One-third of the adults in America are considered pre-diabetic. Ten percent of adults develop diabetes every year. At that rate, by the year 2050, 33% of American adults will have diabetes. Here’s the truth—diabetes is preventable!

We have worked with literally thousands of people to shed tens of thousands of pounds. Many have been taken off of their medications by their physicians. Others have reduced their medications dramatically. Their reduction in weight has improved the quality of their lives.

Diabetes is one of the most dangerous diseases affecting adults today, but it doesn’t have to be that way. By making some adjustments in how and what you eat, increasing your daily activity, and learning a little about health and nutrition, you can take control of your life today and in the future.

About the course

The Diabetes Prevention Program is based on curriculum developed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Research has proven it works. The CDC conducted a study of 3000 adults broken into three groups.

  • The first group made no changes in diet or activity.
  • The second group only took medication for diabetes.
  • The third group completed the CDC Diabetes Prevention Program.

The results are illustrated in the graphic below. Adults under 60-years-old who completed the program reduced their risk of diabetes by 58%. Those over 60 who completed the program reduced their risk of diabetes by 71%.

Research studies and personal experiences continue to show the success of this program. It helps people lose weight, remain active, and delay or prevent type 2 diabetes. You will be coached through the entire program by engaging videos and workbook interactions. You’ll have access to additional support and resources, as well.
