"Resolutions 2.0" is a comprehensive system on RevolutionHealth.com
designed to help people make and keep their health-related New Year's
resolutions (most commonly around weight loss, fitness, smoking cessation
and improved diet).
The key elements of "Resolutions 2.0" include:
-- Revolution Health Goals(TM) is a new set of online tools to help people
set their health goals and draw support from others to meet them.
Revolution Health Goals allows people to set goals and develop
achievable action plans to meet those goals. They can easily track
their progress (and the progress of their friends), ask for
encouragement (or prodding) from community members and invite their
friends to share in their efforts. They can even print out a "Goals on
the Go(TM)" booklet to remind them of their pledge when they are away
from their computer.
-- Revolution Health Groups(TM) features groups that are led by high-
profile experts in their fields who will provide, free-of-charge,
regular support to group members as they seek to achieve their health
resolutions. Among the experts providing this free access to group
members are pediatrician Dr. Stacy Stryer, weight-loss expert Dr. Jim
Hill (for the "lose 50 pounds" group), physician and author Edward
Hallowell, and many others.
-- Revolution Health Tools and Trackers(TM) feature fun and engaging
online tools to further refine your measurement of your progress, to
track your progress and to help you understand your health issues
Experts concur that people are more likely to achieve their health goals if they are working toward them with a group of like-minded people. Tapping into that trend, the Resolutions 2.0 approach harnesses the power of social networking by bringing together groups of people with the same goals. This dynamic creates support and accountability, turning resolutions - no matter how large or small - into an engaging, fun new way of life.
