A: Measuring weight alone is not a completely accurate assessment of health or fitness because it doesn’t distinguish pounds that come from fat and pounds that come from lean muscle mass. Everyone needs some body fat, but too much fat results in obesity–one of the most important public health issues in the United States. According to new federal guidelines, more than half of the US adult population are now overweight or obese, and one out of four children and adolescents is too fat.
I have struggles with my weight on and off though-out my life. I managed to lose 40 pounds in my early 20’s and 10 years later, woke up one day to discover it had all crept back somehow! I lost 10 pounds over 3 months counting PTS with Weight Watchers and then I started HLS. I lost 10 pounds during the class period and loved the personalized nutrition template because it makes it easy! It is easy to eat according to the profile. I just asked myself – did I already have my starch today? Starch is my down fall! ILoved the personalized nutrition template
"In November of 2012 I weighed 297 pounds--my diet was unhealthy, my energy level was low and my body was starting to show the effects of a lifetime of poor eating habits. I grew used to fat jokes, having to hold my breath to tie my shoes and feeling uncomfortable in small seats in theaters and stadiums. I expected people to avoid sitting next to me on airplanes. I resigned to the fact that I would probably not live a long life and that I would likely have health issues related to my weight for many years. Sadly and selfishlyJeff Tasker
My name is Haley Harris and when I hit 200 lbs., I decided I need to make a change. My mom started Healthy Lifestyle Secrets and I started just following her. I did well and so we decided to do Healthy Lifestyles Secrets as a team at work. During this process I have learned a lot. I began taking calcium, multivitamins, pro-biotics and now I stopped taking Ampeih altogether. I am going to continue to do Healthy Life Styles Secrets and become healthier version of me!!

My weight was out of control, and our company offered a program that sounded like it would be easy to follow. Also, there were a lot of people that signed up for it, so I knew it would be easier for me to stay on this program. My expectations are to lose at least 50 lbs. on this program. I have not completed all the steps yet but have made it halfway in my weight loss goal. I will continue on to meet my goals. It’s a GREAT program, and if you follow it, you can be very successful inTiffany Rogers
I’d been working hard for about a year before the class eating clean and green so had a little “discipline” head start. I had hit a plateau for about 6 months so really wanted to take the next in learning the science. This class did exactly that! I know I’ll take it again. I am thrilled with the energy, attention to sugar reduction and protein products you have available. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
