Weigh 2 Change

Weigh 2 Change is a structured program developed specifically to prevent type 2 diabetes. Trained lifestyle coaches from the NDSU Extension Service lead the program to help you change certain aspects of your lifestyle like eating healthier, reducing stress, and getting more physical activity. The program also includes group support from others who share your goals and struggles. This is not a fad diet or an exercise class. And it’s not a quick fix. It’s a year long program focused on long-term changes and lasting results. A year might sound like a long commitment, but learning new habits, gaining new skills, and building confidence takes time.
