Slim-Fast: An Effective Option to Help Cost-Conscious Americans Manage Their Weight
Date:1/6/2009

Don't let the declining economy derail your weight loss goals

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- With the economy in a downward spiral, many Americans are alleviating stress by turning to the comfort -- and relatively low cost -- of high-calorie, less healthy food choices that can lead to weight-gain. But with two-thirds of Americans overweight or obese, knowing how to eat right and economically during stressful times is an important tool to help reduce the health risks of being overweight.

"Research shows that stress isn't the only ill health effect of an ailing economy. Often, people simply don't eat well, whether it's to ease their stress or save money," said Dr. Denise Martz, practicing psychologist, professor and expert in the area of body image and size. "The Slim-Fast Plan offers a scientifically proven approach to help slim your waistline without trimming your wallet. The Plan emphasizes sensible eating, portion control, regular exercise and round-the-clock support, and can be customized to fit each person's individual needs."

At only about $1 average cost per Slim-Fast meal(1), the Slim-Fast Plan is not only economical but also flexible and convenient to fit within a person's busy lifestyle. Slim-Fast offers free support and tracking tools at www.slim-fast.com, as well as an online community dedicated to keeping dieters motivated and on track. This includes free expert advice from Registered Dietitians and support from Weight Loss Advisors, personalized meal plans, customizable fitness plans, a weight tracker, body mass index calculator and personal, online support from other Slim-Fast dieters. Additionally, the Web site will feature a new online community complete with the user's personalized icon and an improved Buddy System that allows members to join groups, find buddies, and get daily support.
