SAN DIEGO, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's depressed economy in which nearly one in 10 Americans is unemployed and revenues for health care practitioners are down, WeightLossDoctor.net today announced a free seminar to explain how entrepreneurs and health professionals can generate revenue as a certified professional Health Coach. At this free seminar, 'Becoming a Professional Health Coach,' taking place Saturday, September 19 in Del Mar, California, physicians and entrepreneurs passionate about health will learn how to earn money by offering a turnkey weight management program that helps people take personal responsibility for their health and reduce the risks from excessive weight and related diseases.
Inarguably, America is experiencing an obesity crisis. If current trends continue by 2032 ninety percent of Americans will be overweight or obese, according to a study by Baylor University researchers. Another recent study found that obese American adults now outnumber those who are merely overweight. This increase in obesity and weight-related conditions, like diabetes, cancer and heart disease, put enormous burdens on Americans in terms of human suffering and financial strain.
Experts agree that prevention is the key to fighting America's obesity epidemic. To lower their costs, major health care providers and employers are developing incentives to help people achieve and maintain an optimal weight. Dr. Mehmet Oz told Larry King during a March interview that "we've had discussions with the Senate about how you can make, for example, health coaches, which could be a tier of healthcare providers." In a CNN interview he advocates health coaches becoming an integral part of our health care system. Clearly, health coaches are destined to play a greater role in America's health.
Since 2002, WeightLossDoctor.net has worked with over 1,500 health professionals and certified health coaches, many of whom have increased their bottom lines from $30,000 to $100,000 per year.
"Becoming a health coach has been the most rewarding thing I've ever done," says Greg Rex, health and lifestyle coach and co-founder of WeightLossDoctor.net. Mr. Rex personally lost over 50 pounds on the program, has kept the weight off for over seven years, and was so inspired that he became a certified Health Coach to teach others how he did it.
"I was preaching to my patients about losing weight when I was obese myself," said Dr. Blaine Jackson, M.D., an Internal Medicine physician based in Solana Beach, California. "With WeightLossDoctor.net, I lost 62 pounds in four months, got off cholesterol medication and I have maintained my weight now for over two years. It was a no-brainer to offer it to my patients. I thought 'If I can do it, so can my patients!' My weight management services have become the most rewarding part of my day, and a very lucrative part of my practice."
Now is the perfect time to launch a new career as a certified Health Coach, or add professional Health Coaching services to your practice. Seminar attendees will learn how to significantly increase their income by offering our clinically proven weight management coaching program. This free local seminar is open to people interested in becoming a Health Coach, and to health professionals interested in helping their patients overcome their struggles with weight-related diseases.

"I lost eight pounds and went down two dress sizes in four weeks," said Whitney Kell, certified Health Coach and co-founder of WeightLossDoctor.net. "More importantly, this program has given me control over hypoglycemia. As far as my career, I have built a very successful business helping others gain back their health, which is incredibly rewarding. I recently reviewed my goal from 1999, which was to earn $20,000 per year working full-time selling software for someone else. Now I earn a strong six figure income working for myself doing something I love."
