NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- We live in a very unique time; our nation is being crippled by staggering levels of individuals who are overweight and obese. Combined, they are estimated to be a stunning 68% of the population, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At the same time, we are facing unprecedented levels of poverty (1-in-6) who lack secure food.
Ironically, some people live in such abundance they over-consume, while others lack the means necessary for basic nutrition and a quality of life. These scenarios have created a nightmare of health, medical, and societal problems. That's where Diet to End Hunger helps.
Beginning March 1, 2011, Diet to End Hunger, a 501c3, is a 6-week health, fitness, and nutritional training program designed to be a win-win for the millions of individuals who want and/or need to lose weight and improve their health while helping local food pantries, soup kitchens, city missions and other hunger relief organizations.
Derek Alessi, Ph.D., author of Lose Fat Forever and Bermuda Triangle Diet, and professional chef Steven Binks are helping individuals drop pounds with simple workouts and delicious meals. At the same time, they are helping hunger relief organizations gain funds and awareness.
Through video and print lessons, participants receive: 6 weeks of nutritional guidance, 6 weeks of menus, over 60 healthful recipes, Quick snack choices, Video meal cooking demonstrations, 6 weeks of workout programs, and 50 exercise demonstrations. For convenience, individuals can do all of this from their own home without special equipment! "We want to give people all the tools necessary to not just lose weight, but to improve their health and ultimately their lives," stated Chef Steven Binks.
The system retails for $397.00. However, as a special program to fight hunger, for a limited time, individuals can gain exclusive access to this system for a $79.00 tax-deductible donation!
Best of all, participants can designate which hunger relief organization can benefit from their donation. Each hunger relief organization receives 75 percent of the entire donation.
"Diet to End Hunger has been tested in specific markets and with tremendous success. Best of all, we were able to offer a new, exciting and healthy program to our community, raise money and provide 25,000 meals for the hungry!" -- Marketing Director, Food Bank of Western New York.
