Discovery Health
National Body Challlenge

With almost 500 tons lost to date, Discovery Health's NATIONAL BODY CHALLENGE returns for a fourth year with new tools and resources to help families and individuals nationwide battle the rising epidemic of adult and childhood obesity.

As part of this year's Challenge, Discovery Health is offering hundreds of new recipes, an online holiday survival guide, expanded workout resources and new original programming designed to motivate and inspire the entire family.

The NATIONAL BODY CHALLENGE is a free, eight-week, multiplatform fitness and weight-loss challenge that incorporates the knowledge and support of leading nonprofit health organizations the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association.

"In a country where one in every six children between the ages of 5 and 19 is considered obese, Discovery Health is committed to providing the best possible information and resources for people to take control of their health and wellness," said Eileen O'Neill, executive vice president and general manager, Discovery Health and FitTV.

"This year's NATIONAL BODY CHALLENGE is more ambitious and comprehensive than ever, with more customized fitness and nutrition tools targeting a greater array of needs, tastes and preferences."

All registered NATIONAL BODY CHALLENGE participants who are 18 or older are entered in the instant win game for a chance to win weekly prizes and possibly even $1 million. All entrants are provided access to an extensive set of free tools and resources:

  • A free eight-week membership to Bally Total Fitness(R) (available January through March 2007)
  • Online access to a customized meal plan and a personalized weight tracker
  • Extensive information and video assets from doctors and health and fitness experts
  • More than 1,000 recipes ranging from healthy comfort foods to vegetarian fare
Visit http://www.discoveryhealth.com for a NATIONAL BODY CHALLENGE preview that includes a special holiday survival guide, recipe makeovers, stress management advice and tips designed to prepare for the Challenge.

Once registered, participants will have access to more than 1,000 recipes including special menu options for kids, vegetarians and diabetics.
