Big Life Changes, One Pound at a Time
Follow along as GMM partners with 11Alive and Northside Hospital for the New Start Weight Smart Challenge.
Twice each year, during the Spring and Fall, Good Measure Meals teams up with 11Alive and Northside Hospital to challenge and assist 12 Atlanta area residents to improve their health in big and bold ways. The Fall edition of the 12-week Northside Hospital New Start Weight Smart Challenge just kicked off on September 23, and, once again, GMM will be giving every contestant 5 days of meals each week, along with nutrition education and support. GMM is excited to be helping the contestants meet their goals as they compete to lose the greatest percentage of body weight.
The 12 participants were chosen after enduring interviews, weigh-ins, and check points, and they have been divided into two teams of six contestants: the red team and the blue team. Individually and with their teams, they will participate in a physical fitness program led by the exceptional Team Fitness Athletics.
This will be the 10th season Good Measure Meals has been the food sponsor for an 11Alive weight loss challenge and the second working alongside Northside Hospital. As a champion promoter of health and wellness pursuits all over the Atlanta area, GMM consistently enjoys the opportunity to support these 11Alive challenge contestants in the big steps they make every season to improve their health and transform their lives.
At the beginning of the competition, GMM performs body composition analyses to determine the optimal daily caloric needs for each participant as they begin their regular workout regimens. GMM also makes every effort to interact with the contestants and help promote long-term lifestyle changes by offering contestants free initial nutrition consultations, engaging them in bi-weekly health challenges to keep them focused on their goals, and by providing special discounts on meal plans for their spouses/partners.
As a part of the sponsorship, Good Measure Meals will also appear on 11Alive’s Atlanta & Company every Wednesday between 11a.m. – Noon. Each week a member of our team of enthusiastic Registered Dietitians will feature health and wellness tips, cooking demonstrations, and Limited Time Flash Sale discount offers to allow new customers to experience Good Measure Meals for themselves!
Be sure to tune in each week to check up on the contestants’ progress and to watch for great tips on health and wellness (plus great GMM discounts)!
