"During the program I learned a great deal about diet and exercise.  I learned to track caloric and fat intake and bring it down to a level that helped me lose weight. I got great advice, real support and other peers advice and suggestions.  We talked about real issues that blocked our success, and came up with solutions.  My coach was attentive and informed.  Thanks for creating this program which helped me, a busy mom, lose weight and learn that physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle."- Dartmouth YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program Participant
