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.

Did you know—cognitive decline can be delayed even later in life if you make lifestyle changes?

Studies done on brain health have indicated that improving your diet and exercising your brain can help cognitive activity.

If you’d like to make some changes in your diet or lifestyle to improve your brain health, the North Dakota State University Extension Service can help.

Cognitive skills refer to our ability to make rapid comparisons, remember unrelated information, and detect relationships.
