Exercising Power to Lead Healthier Lives - 740,000 Participants Cast Votes for 'Challenger of Year'
Date:12/10/2008

CHICAGO, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Ian Smith's 50 Million Pound Challenge, the free national health initiative launched April 2007 to rally Americans to come together to 'Give up the pounds, not the fight,' is on track to top the 3 million pounds lost milestone this month. To celebrate the progress of so many individuals towards their weight-loss goals and motivate people to renew their commitment to improving their health, the campaign has opened an online poll at 50millionpounds.com (http://www.50millionpounds.com/) so people can vote to honor the first Challenger of the Year. For inspiring others to join the fight against the epidemic of excess weight taking so many U.S. lives, the winner receives a $1,000 prize and one lucky voter also gets a $1,000 prize.

"Every American has the power to lead a healthier, happier life," said physician and founder Dr. Ian. "The Challenge helps people come together to exercise that power. This month we're marking a major milestone by asking people to again exercise their power to vote, to honor one of 12 finalists as the Challenger of the Year, in recognition of their personal success as well as inspiring more Americans to shed excess pounds and gain a healthier life.

"Surpassing 3 million pounds is an important shared success for The Challenge. But even more important are the personal successes of each of The Challenge's 740,000 participants striving for their individual weight-loss targets," said Dr. Ian, who is also diet expert on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club and NY Times best-selling author of The Fat Smash Diet. "The personal triumphs and success stories of our 12 finalists are truly remarkable. They've shown amazing commitment and have given and received sensational support from their friends, families and Challenge team members. Like no other measure, these successes set the standard for The Challenge, and
