The experimental group received the program created by applying self-efficacy theory. Data were collected using questionnaires. Statistics used were descriptive statistics such as frequency, percentage, mean, and standard deviation and inferential statistic as Paired sample t-test and Independent t-test at a statistical significance level of 0.05.

Result: After trial, the experimental group had a higher average score than before experiment in self-efficacy= 7.14, outcome expectation= 6.66, and food consumption behavior= 5.34, significantly (p<0.001), including blood sugar level decreased 11 mg/dl. (p<0.05).
