This simple, online program helps you lose weight by building healthy habits over time. And, based on decades of proven clinical research1, Real Appeal can also help you reduce your risk of developing certain diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

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).
