Become a part of the movement. Run Diabetes Undone in your community!
Anyone can lead a Diabetes Undone workshop. Simply sign up, find a meeting place, order materials, and invite friends or members of the community.
Yes, it’s really that simple!
Most doctors, dietitians, and diabetes specialists maintain that type 2 diabetes is a chronic and progressive disease. The American Diabetes Association itself pretty much says this on its website. And just like that, your diagnosis becomes a life sentence.
But here’s a plot twist—type 2 diabetes CAN be undone.
Doctors haven’t been giving us the whole story about type 2 diabetes. They are taught to prescribe drugs for a disease that can be reversed by making simple changes to your diet and lifestyle. In fact, it has been scientifically proven that you can experience dramatic health improvement, be free of medications, and even reverse the disease itself with a healthy lifestyle.
Understanding the power in your lifestyle is the crucial first step in reversing your type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. You can begin to reverse diabetes, right now, immediately. All without outrageous cost, without drugs, and without surgery.
Welcome to Diabetes Undone.
Welcome to hope and the start of your new health story.
What You Will Learn
Make sense of the confusion surrounding diabetes treatment.
The diabetes-fitness connection, and how to gear your exercise regimen to fight diabetes.
The diabetes-food connection, and how you can optimize your meals to nourish your body instead of damaging it.
The diabetes-mind connection, and how your health involves more thanjust what you eat and do.
It’s An 8-Step Journey
To Whole Health
An 8-step video-based course designed to help shift your diabetes paradigm, equip you to reverse diabetes and rewrite your health story.
Step 1: Change Your Paradigm
Set yourself up for success by first understanding the ins and outs of diabetes, and why it’s reversible.
Step 2: Treat the Cause
Dig into the root causes of diabetes, why complications occur, and how you can prevent them with one simple step.
Step 3: Eat to Live
Nutrition – the secret to healing diabetes. Learn how to differentiate between “green,” “yellow,” and “red light foods”.
Step 4: Transform Your Genes
Genetics don’t have to control your destiny. “Turn off” bad genes and start “turning on” the good genes.
Step 5: Build Your Team
It’s the simple things that make a lifetime of difference. This step addresses the significance of water, sleep, and friendship.
Step 6: Choose the Best
Temperance is key in making your lifestyle changes sustainable. Make it all practical by making the right choices and taking the right tests.
Step 7: Dream Big
As you near the end of Diabetes Undone, it’s important to set reasonable goals for yourself. You’ve come this far, it’s time to make it long-term.
Step 8: Feed Your Soul
Finally, learn how to “let go” of the emotional and mental hurdles that have held you back and find true health and freedom.

“Diabetes undone was really incredible because one of the things that I found really fascinating was that it wasn’t only about food and nutrition, but it was also about an active lifestyle and the whole person. Whole person care is so important, so I really appreciate how the program focused on nutrition, exercise, but also the mental and emotional aspects of how to conquer diabetes and have an active and healthy lifestyle.”

Tips & Tricks
Take advantage of our Pre-Workshop Info/Enrollment Night, which will allow interested people to preview what Diabetes Undone is about, meet you and your team, and sign up for your class. It’ll make for a much more comfortable Session 1.
Cook with your Class
Many participants have said that the food from the cookbook they get with their participant materials is the very best part of the workshop.Nutrition is the most important step in reversing diabetes and cooking with your participants is a great way to make this step practical.
Get a Health Buddy
Pair each participant with a “health buddy”. The reason why it helps to have a team of volunteer facilitators is because you want to be able to provide accountability for each participant. Pairing every participant with a volunteer establishes commitment and helps make the lifestyle changes sustainable.
Engage with your Group
Engage in group discussion after each session. You don’t have to call it a day after the last video ends! Some people may want to stick around to share their challenges or just to talk. Either way, do whatever you can to make this experience as personal and helpful as possible.
What if I’m not the most tech-savvy person? Can I do this without going online?
What if I don’t have a team to help me? Can I do it as a one-man team?
How should I set up my sessions?
How many participant kits should I buy?
Buy a few more than you need, because most workshops end up with a few extra people showing up by Sessions 2 or 3. If there’s any extra participant kits after your workshop has ended, you can always reuse them when you decide to run another workshop.
How do I watch or present the videos?
Can participants watch the videos more than once?
Yes, this is a great feature included in Diabetes Undone! Once you set up your online workshop, you will be given a “Workshop URL” that leads people straight to your workshop, as well as an “Enrollment Code”. Your participants can set up their own online account with their Enrollment Code and access the videos for your workshop. This isn’t mandatory, but helpful if they ever miss a session or want to review what they’ve learned. Videos are unlocked to the participants based on your workshop schedule. As each session is completed, all the videos under that session become available to your participants. After the last session, participants will have access to the entire course for a full year.
How long will a coordinator/facilitator have access to the online workshop dashboard?
You have unlimited access before/during the workshop, and one full year of limited access (Edit Session Dates/Print Marketing Materials abilities disabled) after your workshop has finished. Every new workshop you start will cost an additional $99.
