Sessions are 45 minutes to an hour once a week over the ensuing 12 weeks to do the weighing, measuring and a short 20-30 minutes nutritional education talk where a different topic will be discussed every week.
Each participant will receive individualised attention and will additionally receive weekly nutritional education and guidance emails.
The emphasis is on a lot of fun where the individual who has lost the most weight for the week is crowned and given a prize and there will be a Grand Prize at the end of the 12 week session for the person who has lost the greatest percentage of weight in the group.
Groups may contain 25-30 participants in each challenge

+ Why do we want to do it?
Obesity is rapidly becoming the leading cause of preventable death in South Africa. As quoted in a recent publication in The Guardian South Africans among world's fattest people, survey finds Despite its sporty image, the country is 'slowly eating itself to death' says drug firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) as research is published The World Health Organisation (WHO) quotes that 75% of all diseases are related to nutrition. More than 67% of the South African population is considered overweight and the last 20 years have witnessed a rapid growth of diabetes and cardio-vascular diseases. 17% of children in South Africa under the age of 11 are clinically obese and scientists believe this will be the first generation to die before their parents due to ill health.
We believe it is our generations responsibility to do something about this.

+ Who we target?
Our biggest concern is children. By targeting the biggest percentage of the population who are reasonably health conscious and want to lose 5 to 10 kg’s we believe that the nutritional education and lifestyle changes we will be imparting to the participants over the 12 week period will in turn be passed on to the children.
The second group we will be targeting are the individuals who are suffering from diet related issues such as lack of energy, fatigue, diabetes, cardio-vascular disease, digestive problems, arthritis etc.
Although we do not make any medical claims evidence unequivocally proves that if the body is fed properly it has an amazing ability to heal itself.
