CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE. CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
Reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes with our "Change Your Lifestyle. Change Your Life."(CYL²) program. You’ll get your very own coach to teach you how to eat healthy foods and increase your physical activity. When you’re having a rough day and feel like slipping back into your old habits, your classmates will be there to keep you on track.
HOW CAN CYL² HELP ME MAKE THESE CHANGES?
The CYL² lifestyle change program can help you take charge of your health to prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes. Research found that the program helps people make small lifestyle changes and cut their risk of Type 2 diabetes by more than half.
CYL² reduces the risk for Type 2 diabetes and many other chronic conditions, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. The goal of the program is to help you lose five to seven percent of your weight — that’s only 10 to 14 pounds for a person weighing 200 pounds — by eating healthier and being more physically active. This will improve your health and cut your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
HOW MUCH DOES CYL² COST?
There is no cost to you. CYL² is conducted in partnership with the Black Women’s Health Imperative through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
