Personalized Health Coaching Program

The purpose of this program is to reduce your risk of developing Diabetes.  One of the main goals of the program is help you lose weight, if you need to, and to increase physical activity because both of these, in combination, have been proven to prevent the progression of Prediabetes to Type 2 Diabetes.  And the added benefits of weight loss and physical activity are lower risk of heart attack and stroke, increased energy levels, improved quality of sleep and less stress. 

Some example Coaching Topics include:

  • Healthy eating
  • Lifestyle Modification
