ABOUT PROGRAM AUTHOR
Dear potential program participant
A growing body of scientific evidence demonstrates that current methods of getting people to lose weight aren’t working. The most recent study based on electronic health records, published in American Journal of Public Health in 2015, showed that only less than 1 percent of obese people get back to a healthy body weight *
Why is this so daunting? We have recognized two important aspects to note. The first one, is that the motivation of obese people to “eat less and move more” decrease over time without the help of the professionals or other persons sharing the same problem. The second one is that the significant numbers of obese individuals forget that the process of being fit is “not only in their body”, but also in “their minds”.
Although the obvious changes are physical, being fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are “essential things for a good health and healthy internal functionality” Taking all this into consideration we have devised this 12 month long “team weight loss program” to try to help all of you who are seeking different modalities and solutions to resolve your obese problem
What is most important is that The Best Life Deal program provides you an opportunity to reach your weight and health goals from the comfort of your home!
Although there are no shortcuts and there is no guarantee that your “Team” will win, we will do our best to help you gradually lose weight and feel motivated during this journey.
WHO WE ARE? We are a team of experienced health professionals, including medical doctors, dietitians, nutritionists and life coaches all dedicated to make you look and feel good.
It isn’t always easy to choose the right way in your life and get the most from it!? We offer to you the only one solution that will probably suit you!
