Million Dollar Body(TM) Is Awarding Over One Million Dollars to Help People

Lose Weight and Get in Better Shape

ANAHEIM, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitness website MillionDollarBody.com has just announced the $250,000 Grand Prize winner in its Million Dollar Body Game(TM), an ongoing incentive competition that is giving away over $1,000,000 this year to spur people to lose weight and get in shape. Earl Broughfman, prevailed over six other candidates who themselves won $50,000 for their personal accomplishments and joins Kimberly Barnett, who also won $250,000.00.

Covington, Virginia's Earl Broughfman, who goes by the nickname Wink, lost 125 pounds and dropped his body fat ratio from 30% to 16% in 260 days of hard work that earned him $1,000.00 as one of the 2007 winners in the Million Dollar Body Game. He continued his focused work to reach the $50,000 award plateau this week. He's presently at 185 pounds -- almost half his original weight.

He sheepishly left the line.

"Because most of the activities in my life at that time revolved around food, it brought on issues with my personal health," Earl recalled. "I may have lived to be a decent age, but not well. With obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, sleep apnea and my feet breaking down on me, it wasn't looking good!"

Earl overcame his obstacle of "overeating" by using the 40/30/30 Balanced Slim Down Plan. "It feels great to go into a store and be able to buy 'normal' clothes, not off the 'BIG AND TALL' rack like I had done for so many years! What a difference 49 inche
