The My Fit Habits Diabetes Prevention Program helps participants develop healthy lifestyle habits that they can stick with for the long term, while losing weight and lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Get started by speaking with one of our Lifestyle Coaches.
How the Program Works
Based on the curriculum of the CDC National Diabetes Program, the My Fit Habits DPP is a one-year program. Our program is broken into 3 phases. Each phase has a distinct purpose to help participants adopt healthier habits and maintain them! Let's face it, change doesn't happen overnight. We will be with you through all phases as you establish a new lifestyle to lower your risk and improve your habits.
In phase 1, participants engage in weekly meetings for the first two months of the program. We cover a variety of lifestyle topics such as fitness, healthy eating, stress management, and more. The initial goal is to achieve 5-7% weight loss from the starting weight.
In phase 2, we transition to bi-weekly meetings. This takes place during months 3 through 6. Participants focus on maintaining and strengthening habits learned, keeping the weight off, and losing more weight if they choose. We continue to dive into a variety of healthy lifestyle topics during each lesson as participants steadily build on new habits and make progress on program goals.
Phase 3 begins around month 7. Meetings are held once per month to help participants overcome any obstacles and stay on track to maintain their new healthy habits, for life.
Small changes, big results.
By building small habits each week, you will work your way into a new, healthier lifestyle that lasts. And by meeting with others who are on the same path, you can celebrate each other’s successes and work together to overcome obstacles. The lifestyle changes you make in the My Fit Habits DPP will help you prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. As part of a group, participants will work with a trained lifestyle coach and other participants to learn the skills needed to make lasting changes.
The goal of the program
My Fit Habits is based on the scientifically proven National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP). The My Fit Habits DPP is intended to help participants lose 5-7% (or more) of their starting weight. For a 200 pound person, that's 10-14 pounds. Learn more about the NDPP here.
