1 In the past 20 years, researchers have demonstrated that structured weight-loss and lifestyle-change programs can accomplish three critical employee and population health goals: 1. Improving overall health outcomes for individuals who are overweight and obese but do not yet have prediabetes or diabetes (Jensen, M.D., Ryan, D.H., Donato, K.A. et al, 2014) 2. Reducing the progression to diabetes in those who have prediabetes (Williamson, D.A., Bray, G.A., & Ryan, D.H, 2015) 3. Improving clinical markers for individuals who already have Type 2 diabetes (Espeland, M.A., Glick, H.A., Bertoni, A., et al for the Look AHEAD Research Group, 2014).
