Brief Summary:
The investigators aim to establish the effectiveness of a prescribed, community-based lifestyle modification program for those with recently diagnosed diabetes. The investigators hypothesize that those who enter a 6 month program will report greater levels of physical activity compared to a group who do not enter the program but who continue to receive usual care.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lifestyle counselling Behavioral: HEALD
A six month, two phase pedometer-based walking program. For weeks one and two of phase I, participants will attend a group-based 60 minute education/supervised walking session. They will be asked to set a daily step goal and to attempt to achieve this on a daily basis over three months. Their steps will be recorded in a step log. For weeks one and two of phase II, participants will learn how to increase the speed of a portion of their daily steps and will learn the concept of low glycemic index and how to set dietary goals related to this concept. They will attend two sixty minute group-based education/supervised walking sessions.
