Why Participate

Research shows that CDC-recognized lifestyle change program participants who lost 5-7% of their body weight and added 150 minutes of exercise per week cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by up to 58% (71% for people over 60 years old).

Even a decade later, program participants were one-third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than individuals who did not join a program.

The program can lower your risk of having a heart attack or stroke, improve your health, help you feel more energetic, and even reverse your prediabetes diagnosis.

A trained Lifestyle Coach leads the program to help you change certain aspects of your lifestyle, like eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity.

The program includes group support from others who share your goals and struggles.

A CDC-recognized lifestyle change program is a structured program—in person or online—developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes.

It is designed for people who have prediabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes, but who do not already have diabetes.

A year might sound like a long commitment, but learning new habits, gaining new skills, and building confidence takes time.

As you begin to eat better and become more active, you’ll notice changes in how you feel, and maybe even in how you look.

This lifestyle change program is not a fad diet or an exercise class. And it’s not a quick fix.

It’s a year-long program focused on long-term changes and lasting results.

Fruit Street’s online program makes it easy to participate because you can join your diabetes prevention classes online via Zoom with your dietitian from the comfort of your home - on your computer or through the Fruit Street Android or iOS app..
