New Weight Loss Blog Will Focus on Science-Based Articles Written by Experts in Nutrition, Fitness, and Behavior

HEALTHeME announced today the launch of its new blog, The Skinny. HEALTHeME is an online and mobile-based weight loss application that provides personalized and proactive weight-loss counseling. Company co-founder/program director, Sloan Rachmuth and program director, Lauren Musolf, will write the blog.

In a recent interview about the creation of the new blog, Sloan said, “We decided to put together The Skinny because there are just too many weight-loss blogs out there that are too general and offer fad advice. We wanted to have articles and stories that are rooted in cutting-edge science. We want to explore research and then present it to people in a fun, readable format. That’s what The Skinny is all about.” Sloan went on to explain that the blog posts will be written in a straight forward manner that will be accessible to all readers.

The Skinny will not simply be about food and calorie counting. Too many blogs already have this focus. Many factors go into losing weight such as stress-reduction, psychological, and exercise. Sloan and Lauren will guide their readers through the sometimes-confusing world of weight loss and everything that entails. The topics covered in their articles will run the gamut from psychological components in weight loss to proper food choices. Nothing will be off-limits, and everything will be on the table.

Blog contributor Sloan Rachmuth is both the co-founder and the program director at HEALTHeME. She has 20 years of experience in the weight loss field. Sloan holds a degree in psychology from Harvard University and did graduate work in Media Psychology at Fielding University. It is Sloan's passion to assist people in reaching their life goals of both weight loss and healthy living.

Lauren Musolf has spent years in the fitness and healthcare fields. In addition to her work with HEALTHeME, Lauren works as a health educator several hospitals and teaches group fitness classes. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Lauren is thrilled to be the lead writer on The Skinny staff, and looks forward to bringing her perspective to the readership.
