Prevent Disease

Research shows that modest behavior changes, such as increasing physical activity and making better food choices, reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and other weight-related health conditions.


Fine Tune Your Lifestyle Behaviors

LifeWeighs Wellness Coaching offers BetterWeighs Lifestyle Education, our exclusive lifestyle behavior tune-up. If you are aware of your risks for disease and have decided to act, a Coach will review what you've been doing and assist with planning next steps or help you decide where to begin.

Diabetes Prevention

For some people with prediabetes, lifestyle behavior change can return blood glucose levels (sugar) to normal. LifeWeighs Wellness Coaching is a provider of PreventT2, a proven lifestyle change program that helps people with prediabetes prevent or delay development of type 2 diabetes in people at high risk for disease. PreventT2 is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

How It Works:

As part of a small group or working one-to-one with a lifestyle coach, you will learn the skills you need to make lasting lifestyle changes. These changes include losing weight, improving your food choices, adding physical activity to your life, managing stress, staying motivated and solving problems that can get in the way of healthy changes.

The 12-week BetterWeighs Lifestyle Education program includes:

  • A specially trained Lifestyle Coach
  • 4 weekly lifestyle education sessions
  • 2 monthly follow-up sessions

The 12-month PreventT2 program includes:

  • A specially trained Lifestyle Coach
  • 16 weekly lifestyle education sessions
  • 6-8 monthly follow-up sessions

Being part of a group provides support from other people who are facing similar challenges and trying to make the same changes you are. Together, you will celebrate successes and find ways to overcome obstacles. Those who prefer to work one-to-one with a lifestyle coach will receive on-going support from their coach.


Program Goals: 

Our 12-week and 12-month programs focus on:

  • Increasing Physical Activity—studies show moderate physical activity (walking, swimming, mowing the lawn) for as little as 30 minutes, five days a week can help improve your blood pressure, raise your good cholesterol and prevent bloodflow problems.
  • Healthy Eating—Practicing portion control, reducing fat in your diet and discovering healthier food options have been proven to help prevent the onset of disease.
  • Losing Weight—it has been shown that reducing your body weight by even a small amount (as little as 5%) can result in tremendous benefits to people at risk for disease.
