Health Enhancement Systems Wellness Program Helps Participants Control Weight Permanently
MIDLAND, Mich., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Losing weight is the easy part. Maintaining it long term is the challenge. With this Health Enhancement Systems corporate wellness program (www.HealthEnhancementSystems.com), NutriSum: Healthy Weight for Life (http://www.nutrisum.com/?from=newswire), over 15,000 have learned how to gain control of their weight -- and improve their health -- with simple daily nutrition and physical activity habits.
In its first year, NutriSum has had a huge impact. "We've heard from thousands of participants who've had life-changing results in just 3-6 months," notes Dean Witherspoon, President and founder of Health Enhancement Systems, a company that creates a variety of award-winning workplace wellness programs. "They've lost weight -- anywhere from 3 to over 50 pounds -- lowered cholesterol, increased energy, and reduced their need for medications."
But don't mistake this healthy weight loss program as a get-thin-quick scheme. "The important distinction is that NutriSum is a lifestyle program, not a diet," adds Witherspoon. "We've narrowed down eating patterns that -- in addition to regular exercise -- are consistently seen in people who've lost weight and kept it off (http://www.nutrisum.com/?from=newswire/successstories.pdf)."
Organizations that have implemented the paper-based or online weight loss program are on track to creating a healthier work environment. "NutriSum was the first company-wide online campaign offered to our employees and their spouses," remarks Susan Okonkowski, MPH, RD, Senior Associate Program Coordinator for DTE Energy. "Healthy behaviors have increased tremendously across the company since the program started."
