Brookline, MA (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Diet.com, one of the web's leading resources for diet, fitness and nutrition content and tools, has announced that the site’s annual New Year's Weight Loss Challenge will begin on Monday, January 7. The Challenge will run for 6 weeks, from January 7 to February 15, with participants from all over the world competing for motivational prize packages.
The Challenge will provide a forum for participants to set goals, spotlighting a “Milestone/Reward” theme to encourage members to reward themselves for each goal met. This method of setting small goals and incentivizing them with rewards has proven to be an effective motivator for healthy weight loss by helping dieters to feel successful.
The dedicated Weight Loss Challenge page on Diet.com will also showcase healthy recipes, exercise demos and fun interactive member polls, as well as feature a real-time 24/7 chat room exclusively for all participants to join in chats with their fellow Challengers. Diet.com also works with sponsors to compile prize packages to reward top Challengers at the end of each competition.
The grand prize winner of Diet.com’s 2012 Weight Loss Challenge lost 17 pounds during the 6-week Challenge and took home a $250 Visa Gift Card, 3 cases of Vita Coco all-natural coconut water, a 12-pack variety case from Colby's Kettle Corn and a variety of diet and fitness books.
Past New Year’s Weight Loss Challenges have attracted participants from all over the globe, and Challengers have dropped upwards of 1,400 total pounds.
