Common Questions:

How do I see if I qualify?

Qualification is quick and simple through our two minute survey above. The survey assesses whether you are at high risk of  developing type 2 diabetes which can lead to many other serious illnesses. A score of 5 or more is needed to qualify.  Once you know your score, we ask a few other related questions to evaluate whether you can benefit from the program.  If so, you will be instantly approved and invited via email.

What is the course like?

The course is 100% online and includes a series of on-demand videos, quizzes and workbooks, which you may print and are yours to keep. You will also have access to your own personal health coach. The informational weekly videos take approximately 30 minutes per week. You may access the course at anytime and anywhere that you have WiFi. Whether you want to enjoy watching the inspirational videos from the privacy and comfort of your own home, or on-the-go, the course goes with you to support your schedule and your lifestyle.

What commitment is there from me?

Due to high demand and limited spots, if you are accepted, it’s important to log in to the course and start the first session within the first 48 hours of being accepted.  In order to be successful in the program, we ask that you devote the minimum requirement of completing one lesson per month (takes about 30 minutes).  If you cannot take at least one 30-minute module per month, we will need to give your spot to someone else on our waitlist who can benefit from it.

When will I begin to see results?

Results vary between individuals, but normally most individuals begin to see physical and mental benefits within the first week. One hundred percent of our participants who commit 30-40 minutes per week to the videos and toward the daily application of these principles see some form of positive health benefits. On average, our participants see 10-20 pounds in weight loss the first six weeks, although some do lose significantly more. To see the best transformational results, it is highly recommended that you stay with us for the first six weeks.

Is there any cost for me?

There is no cost to you. The Knox County Health Department received grant funding to offer the program to Knox County employees free of charge.

I qualified for the program. How do I start?

Getting started is easy. If you score 5 or higher, you will receive an automated email from our system with your login credentials.  Simply click the link in the email and log in with the credentials provided. Once you are logged in, you will be provided with a number of resources to help you get started and support you through your journey. You will also be invited to schedule optional and private one-on-one coaching calls with our health coaches.  You will also be invited to our optional weekly group coaching webinars and invited to join our private Inner Circle Facebook group for further support, resources and community.

What if I scored below 5 on the survey, and my fasting glucose and A1C numbers do not qualify me, can I still participate?

Yes! We do make a very similar program available to anyone interested. If you would like to give the course a FREE 7-day trial, you may click here.  After the trial, you can keep access for $29.95 per month.

I qualified, but I need help getting started.

Most definitely! We are here to support you and help you maximize your results throughout the entire program. Our support team is available to help you Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. If you get stuck, you may contact us within the course or email our support team directly at and we will be happy to help you.

Do I really have my own health coach?

Yes! Once you are accepted into the program, you will receive an email from your coach who will introduce himself/herself, provide you with his/her email for any health questions you may have, and give you a link to schedule your private coaching call with him/her, whenever it fits your schedule.

This sounds too good to be true. What is the catch?

There is no catch. Because of the substantial annual health-related costs of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and related illnesses to the government, the government has chosen to take a proactive approach toward addressing these diseases. Their findings point to this prevention program as being a safe, viable option to reverse prediabetes or delay type 2 diabetes in the majority of individuals who participate in the program. The government allocates an annual budget to be used toward these grants and makes the funding available to give you unrestricted access to complete the course for up to one entire year.
