Program Structure

The VP Transform for Prediabetes program is one year long and has two distinct phases:

Core | 4 months

The first 4 months (16 weeks) of the program deliver weekly learning sessions with built-in activities that help you apply the information to your own life right away. The learning sessions cover topics related to sustainable weight loss, being more active, healthy eating, and emotional and mental resilience. Each week you will also connect, virtually, with your health coach for individual support and goal-setting.

For Life | 8 months

The remaining 8 months of the program are dedicated to maintaining and reinforcing the new healthy behaviors you developed in the first 16 weeks.

What to Expect

While you’re in the program, you’ll aim to achieve two goals:

  • Reduce your weight by 5–7% of your starting body weight. This small amount of weight loss can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by about 60%.
  • Increase your physical activity to 150 minutes each week. Your coach will help you incorporate more physical activity at moderate intensity throughout the week.
