The Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh Less program is thrilled to announce the launch of our new program; Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes. Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes is a 12-month, online diabetes prevention program. It has been approved and recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a lifestyle change program, proven to prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes.
If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, this program is for you. You CAN prevent type 2 diabetes. Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes can help!
Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes is based upon proven strategies to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Key concepts include planning, tracking, and living mindfully to prevent diabetes. The program is delivered in a real-time, online format so you see and hear your instructor in a live session. The format of the class allows you to interact with your instructor and classmates. You’ll be able to work through challenges together as a group and celebrate each other’s successes.
Prediabetes affects 1 in 3 American adults but many don’t even know they have it1. Prediabetes and diabetes have become so common, it’s easy to forget that they have a serious impact on one’s physical, social, and mental health as well as the financial health of families. To understand your risk, take the CDC-Prediabetes Screening Test.
If you are a member of the NC State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees, the cost of this 12-month online program is only $25 (the State Health Plan covers the remainder of the cost, $400, for their members).
The first Eat Smart, Move More, Prevent Diabetes series will begin the week of May 23rd.
