Purpose:

This research study is being done: 1) to determine if the MGH Be Fit program helps employees to change their nutrition and exercise habits and lower their risk for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes and 2) to determine if a maintenance program following the Be Fit 12 week program will help employees to keep the positive health changes.
