Over the years, how many times have you found yourself saying, “I really need to lose some weight”? Do you now find yourself not looking or feeling like the person you want to be?
Ted Tucker, owner of The Challenge Center, did something about the way he looked. By eating healthier foods, replacing two meals a day with the ViSalus Sciences® Vi-Shape® Nutritional Shake Mix, and drinking Kangen Water for 90 days, Ted was able to drop 40 pounds of excess body fat. During the 90-Day Challenge, he also lowered both his blood pressure and cholesterol. Ted is committed to the program and will undoubtedly keep shedding pounds until he’s attained his personal goal.
Ted is concerned about the health of Oklahoma. “We are now the 48th ranking state in health,” says Ted. “I want to help change that statistic before we sink to number 50.” Ted says there are 42 members in his family, and they are now down to two smokers and only two who are overweight. Ted hopes all 42 will soon be on the 90-Day Challenge.
According to Ted, the 90-Day Challenge is the fastest growing weight loss program in America. The program utilizes the Vi-Shape Nutritional Shake Mix that offers participants a fast, ideal meal replacement containing a full profile of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that can also save you money. You have the choice of replacing either one or two of your daily meals with a delicious shake. Powdered Vi-Shape is mixed with non-fat milk or soy milk and becomes a delicious and nutritious shake. You can also blend in fresh, frozen or canned fruits or any of several flavor mix-ins for added flavor and nutrition.
When asked why he considered Vi-Shape to be superior to other products, Ted supplied the following list:
1. Vi-Shape is a gluten-free, concentrated and absorbable blend of proteins processed to remove fat, lactose, carbohydrates, and isoflavones to provide pure, concentrated protein. When mixed with milk or soy milk, it provides 20 to 22 grams of protein to burn fat and help build lean muscle.
2. The shake is low sodium – lower in sodium than other brands.
3. Vi-Shape contains a serving of whole milk, for bone-healthy calcium.
4. It contains a full serving of fruit or vegetable fiber.
5. It contains digestive aids and enzymes, including prebiotic activity for maximum nutrition absorption.
6. Best of all, Vi-shape tastes like cake mix. No grit and no metallic aftertaste.
“The Challenge Center has several membership options that include lots of special activities, parties and fitness programs,” said Margie Kleinert Sweet, owner of Amazing Hoops and a Challenge promoter.
The Challenge Center offers weekly classes and activities. Challenge promoters Margie, Ben Mayberry and Marleen Bauer lead a variety of exciting, fun exercise classes in self defense, yoga, beginner’s Zumba, fitness hoop and rebounder (mini-trampoline), and group walks at LaFortune Park.
A membership package includes weekly meetings with headline topics such as Staying Motivated, Finding Your Identity, Knowing Your Purpose, Peace & Rest in a Busy World, Leaving Your Past Behind, and Fulfilling Your Dreams. There are also monthly shake parties to introduce new flavors of the month. This is a great opportunity to meet new friends and encourage each other during your 90-Day Challenge.
“One thing we emphasize at The Challenge Center is support and encouragement,” said Margie. The 90-Day Challenge is a unique plan in a new era of weight loss that provides participants lots of opportunities. You might even be able to get your membership free each month.
