My Reasons


"NDDP provided the framework I needed to succeed in losing 50+ pounds and keep it off for over 3 years. My coach was respectful, confidential, supportive, and knowledgeable. She encouraged us to be kinder to ourselves and recognize I needed to change my mental outlook about food. I actually ate more than before in the program! Logging my food, activity, and water was essential, as was weighing in. Setting small goals made them more attainable, which prompted me to keep going."
Paula, Panhandle NDPP Participant

Evidence Based Lifestyle Change Program

The National Diabetes Prevention Program is based on the success of the National Institutes of Health-led Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) research study, which showed that people at risk for type 2 diabetes can significantly reduce their risk by losing 7% of their body weight through healthy eating and physical activity. The group interaction is crucial to the program's success. With a supportive group to cheer their successes and empathize with their setbacks, participants don't have to make lifestyle changes alone.
