What’s all the weight loss buzz about?
The SASF Biggest Loser Competition has created a healthy buzz in the office, motivating staff to drop a few pounds while adopting a healthier lifestyle. The competition spans from June 2nd- July 28th, 2017 and has 23 SASF staff fighting to win the title of SASF’s Biggest Loser! The competition includes weekly weigh-ins, motivational emails and of course, a built in work support system to help everyone get closer to their goals. In addition, each participant received a copy of Michael Pollan’s Food Rules. This “eater’s manual” provides simple and clear rules when making healthy nutrition choices. For example, “Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food” and “avoid food products that contain more than five ingredients.”
Now, I’m sure you must be wondering, what’s the prize? Besides improving your heart health, increased energy in and out of work, and enhanced quality of life, there are a few extra incentives!
Biggest Losers: The female and male who lose the most weight and inches in total.
1st Place Male and Female: Cooking Class for 2, 1 week of Blue Apron and nutrition/fitness gift basket.
2nd Place Male and Female: 1 week of Blue Apron and nutrition/fitness gift basket.
3rd Place Male and Female: 1 healthy lunch and nutrition/fitness gift basket.
Biggest Loser MVP Award: This person is someone who doesn’t necessarily lose the most weight but puts in great effort, attends the wellness events, motivates others and truly takes strides to be a healthier person in and out of the work place. Winner receives a nutrition and fitness gift basket.
Whether you’re in the competition or not, it’s a great time to take your health into your own hands! Check out the biggest loser handbook for more information and look out for wellness events that will be offered organizational wide in the future.
