Diabetes Prevention Program

A YMCA trained lifestyle coach facilitates a small group of adults to discuss behavior changes that can improve the health of participants.

The program consists of 25 one-hour sessions delivered over the course of a year and covers the following:

  • Healthy Eating – Eating smaller portions, reducing fat in your diet and discovering healthier foods can help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
  • Increasing Physical Activity – Moderate physical activity (walking, swimming, mowing the lawn) for as little as 30 minutes, five days a week, can help improve your blood pressure, raise your good cholesterol and prevent blood flow problems.
  • Losing Weight – Reducing your body weight by as little as 5–7% can offer tremendous benefits for people at risk for diabetes.

Research has shown that YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program can reduce the number of new cases of type 2 diabetes by as much as 58% and by 71% among adults aged 60 years or older.
