Weight Management

A healthy weight is a weight that lowers your risk for health problems. For most people, body mass index (BMI) and waist size are good ways to tell if you're at a healthy weight.

But reaching a healthy weight isn't just about reaching a certain number on the scale or a certain BMI. Having healthy eating and exercise habits is very important.

If you want to get to a healthy weight and stay there, healthy lifestyle changes will work better than dieting.

St. Luke's and the YMCA Partner Together to Prevent Diabetes

The Diabetes Prevention Program is an evidenced-based program designed to help people at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The year-long program uses behavior modification techniques to help you adopt a healthy lifestyle by eating healthier foods, increasing physical activity, and losing a modest amount of weight. 

If you are a St. Luke’s employee or spouse of a St. Luke’s employee and are covered by the St. Luke’s Employee health care plan, you could qualify for up to $200 in rebates on the program.
