More than one third of adults in the U.S. are obese, according to the latest available statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
But the bad news doesn’t stop there. The data goes further, and shows us what a costly public health crisis this really is.
In 2008 alone, medical costs associated with obesity reached $147 billion, and medical costs for the obese are an average of $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.
In a market crowded with weight loss plans, and a dizzying array of spokespeople telling us daily about the best ways to shed pounds, it can be hard to find clear advice and the right path.
We’re hoping our newest product from NUTRILITE by Amway can change all that.
Amway North America just launched BODYKEY by NUTRILITE™, a weight management program rooted in genetics that shows exactly how a person should eat to most effectively manage their weight.
What makes this plan so different and so successful is that its weight loss plans are based on an individual’s unique genetic makeup.
“This isn’t just weight loss, it’s weight loss for life,” says BODYKEY spokesman and celebrity chef Jason Roberts. “BODYKEY works, and it works better than any other plan. Why? Because it’s designed for you.”
You may kn0w Roberts from ABC’s “The Chew,” where he is a correspondent, or from his cookbooks “Elements,” and “Graze: Lots of Little Meals Fast.”
Roberts is passionate about the issue of obesity, and hopes to help people live healthier, better lives by losing weight for good.
The new program combines eating well, fitness, nutrition and a take-at-home genetic test to determine if a person’s body responds better to cutting carbs, reducing fat or a balanced diet.
NUTRILITE has released a multi-media tool to help people learn about BODYKEY and how it works. There you’ll find videos, photos, a press release, and other resources that explain the program, and what you need to do to get started.
Roberts says the first step is to take the genetic test, which identifies your diet through genome type, then the plan is optimized for your body. Then you are ready to start the plan and get on your way with BODYKEY.
With the BODYKEY by NUTRILITE™ Program, Matias and Aymara Caceres know they’ve found a way to control their weight for life.
“This program has really educated me about how to control my weight,” Matias said.
The couple both started with the BODYKEY by NUTRILITE Jump Start Kit, which includes the Inherent Health® Weight Management Genetic Test. Taking the test unlocked the best personalized plan for the Caceres’ genes, which turned out to be the BODYKEY by NUTRILITE Better Balancer Plan for both.
Evert Ramirez has also found great success with BODYKEY, and was kind enough to share his before and after photos with us as a testimonial. We’ve posted them here to help inspire others to take the BODYKEY weight loss challenge.
Thanks Evert, and keep up the great work!
