YMCA Offers DIabetes Prevention Program

| No Comments

The Metuchen YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program helps those at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes reduce their risk through healthy eating, increased physical activity and weight loss - an approach that has been proven to prevent or delay the onset of the disease by more than half.  

Now is a great time to take control of your health.  In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will help you change your lifestyle by learning about healthy eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over the course of 16 one-hour sessions.  Topics covered include nutrition, getting started with physical activity, overcoming stress, staying motivated, and more! After the initial 16 core weekly sessions, you will meet monthly for up to a year for added support to help them maintain their progress.

Program Goals:

·        Reduce body weight by 7%

·        Increase physical activity to 150 minutes per week

New Classes Begin:

·        October 16 @South Amboy YMCA-6:30pm to 7:30pm
