Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
http://www.WeightLossApp.com - Most cities in the modern world are facing an alarming problem, that's affecting children, families, and medical professionals alike. The obesity epidemic is here, and it’s very real. Two-thirds of the American population is overweight, and almost as many are obese. This means that most Americans are subject to the myriad of health risks associated with excess weight. With so many modern conveniences, is it any wonder that so many men, women, and children are falling prey to an easy lifestyle and the subsequent health problems that arise? Could technology be used to help offset this alarming trend towards poor heath?
The answer is "yes", and the war on obesity is being waged in an innovative way by a 'new school' medical doctor. Dr. S. Mark McKenna has developed an innovative weight loss app that will benefit those women who decide to lose weight and keep it off long-term.
The popularity of the social networks almost rival the popularity of fast food – nearly everyone has a Facebook Page, and many people use Twitter and other forms of social media on a daily basis to talk to friends and family, regardless of where in the world they might be. "Why not use this brilliant form of streamlined and near-instantaneous correspondence to help pass the word of diet and nutrition information through to the people we care about the most?" asks McKenna, creator of this dynamic new weight loss app.
By taking advantage of the popularity of social networking sites, Dr. McKenna has opened a new channel of weight loss related support that allows users to establish a mobile/social network based community of like minded individuals. The goal of the Skinny isn’t to teach people how to count calories or points or to attend meetings – it’s goal is to help women make positive lifestyle changes that will help them to achieve permanent weight loss... for life. WeightLossApp.com users can pass that information on to other people to foster an open, honest dialogue about weight loss and hopefully inspire others along the way.
The Skinny creates a transparent and bidirectional way of looking at weight loss and nutrition by helping women stay informed and giving them a way to speak with their 'friends' and 'followers' honestly about their weight loss goals.
The Skinny: Inform. Illuminate. Inspire. For more information visit http://www.WeightLossApp.com. This free weight loss app is available for download in the Apple iTunes beginning January 2013.
