PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of Americans struggle with their weight, trying and repeatedly failing to stick to a healthy eating and exercise plan. Shaklee Corporation, the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S., is introducing Shaklee 180™, an entirely new way to lose the right kind of weight, fat not muscle, and learn how to keep it off.
Shaklee 180 is a complete weight and, more importantly, inch loss program that anyone can do. The initial 90-day plan includes energizing smoothees, snack bars, teas, and metabolism booster* to help you lose the extra pounds. The second 90-days is designed to teach you how to keep your new healthy weight for life – something most standard diets neglect to do.
"At the heart of the Shaklee 180 products is leucine, an amino acid that signals your body to retain muscle so you lose the right kind of weight—fat not muscle," says Jamie McManus, M.D. and Shaklee 180 advisor. "On traditional diets, over 1/3 of weight loss could be muscle, which can result in a slower metabolism."
The comprehensive program is based on studies that show people who have community support, do it with others, and track their activities are more successful when it comes to dieting. Shaklee 180 takes that to a whole new level with its Shaklee 180 app and unique reward system that offers great incentives from smaller weekly prizes to trips of a lifetime.
"One reason fad diets fail is that people set unrealistic goals. With Shaklee 180, people learn how to maintain their weight loss with a realistic, convenient and affordable eating plan," says Harley Pasternak, bestselling fitness and diet author in 14 languages and 30 countries worldwide.
Real results, great rewards – welcome to the Shaklee 180 difference.
