Making lifestyle change is hard! Consider joining a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) that meets weekly to support participants in making healthy habits a priority. A trained lifestyle coach will discuss nutrition, incorporating daily physical activity, meal planning and how to cope with the inevitable challenges that arise. DPP goals include losing 5 to 7 percent of starting body weight and increasing physical activity minutes to 150 per week. Reaching these goals in a DPP program has been proven to lower one’s risk for developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 58 percent (71 percent if you’re over age 60).
