New Weigh of Life - a year-long program (Palo Alto)
On line enrollment does not automatically grant a spot in the class. A pre-assessment is required, before the class begins. To learn more about our program, contact us and book a half-hour consultation with one of our facilitators.
This year-long diabetes prevention program is well-suited for overweight individuals with pre-diabetes or insulin resistance, or those who have a history of gestational diabetes. Individuals diagnosed with Diabetes are also welcome, provided Diabetes Self-Management Training has been completed. To learn more about our program, contact us and book a half-hour consultation with one of our facilitators.
Our program uses the University of Pittsburgh's "Group Lifestyle Balance™ Program" which is an evidence-supported adaptation of the original National Institutes of Health/National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease-supported Diabetes prevention program (DPP). DPP results show an average weight loss of 7% body weight with moderate activity reduced the risk of developing type 2 Diabetes by 58% (and as much as 71% in individuals over the age of 60).
Participants will learn behavior modification and lifestyle changes for weight loss, improved health and risk reduction.
