Reclaiming your health just got a lot easier. Check out Good Measures Diabetes Prevention Program and start living your best life.
How does the program work?
Here's a step by step guide...
Make sure our Diabetes Prevention Program is right for you. This program is designed for people living with prediabetes or certain risk factors. Good Measures offers other one-on-one programs for people already living with diabetes and other chronic conditions and programs for people who want to improve their health through food.
Sign up. Give us a few details about you and create your profile. Then we assign you to a program group. We have new groups starting every month.
Get the Good Measures app. You'll receive instructions on how to download the Good Measures app and get started logging your meals right away. Don't have a smartphone? No problem! Use our website.
Start weighing yourself. Stepping on a scale every day is part of the program.
Meet your lifestyle coach. Good Measures coaches are registered dietitians. They know their stuff. Your coach will get to know you and your unique concerns and be there to help when you need it. Send your coach a message any time you have a question.
Start learning. Every week you'll learn about and discuss a new topic. The program starts with 20 sessions in the first 6 months, then there are 6 monthly sessions.
Lean on your group. Groups are typically 10-15 people. You can interact with your group using the discussion boards, or message other members of your group directly.
Start feeling great. The program lasts a year. You'll feel the results within weeks and continue to build long-lasting healthy habits all year.
The Good Measures team of lifestyle coaches are all credentialed clinicians who are by your side every step of the way. Good Measures' patented technology gives you personalized meal recommendations from a variety of menus.
By keeping an eye on your Good Measures Index (a score from 1-100 updated continuously based on your meal choices and other factors) you'll always understand what the meals you choose are doing for you. Ready for lunch? Check the Good Measures app to see which meals are good choices for you right now—based on what you had for breakfast this morning, dinner last night, and so on. You'll choose meals with confidence and feel good about your choices!
“It is the incredible support—not only from the Good Measures staff, because they are always there for me—my coach is great!—but also the people who participate in the program. We help each other with different hurdles. It was eye-opening that other people struggle too.”
"With other programs, I could cheat all week and starve myself for two days. Good Measures helped me see the effects of food and get the nutrients I need to feel better. My dietitian coach gives me positive emotional support, celebrating my little changes in behavior.”
