Hey, y’all. So I had the incredible experience of being trained as a Lifestyle Coach for the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program and I gotta tell you… I think this is a for real game changer! The program (which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Diabetes Prevention Program AND supported by the American Medical Association and American Heart Association) aims to help at-risk individuals lose weight through healthy eating and increased physical activity to help reduce their risk of developing diabetes. What I love most is that this is all done in a group-setting over 12-months time where participants help each other navigate the all-to-often frustrating world of food, exercise and weight loss.
