What You Should Know
The 50 Million Pound Challenge is a collaborative effort between Dr. Ian Smith and State Farm Insurance company to urge people to lose a total of 50 million pounds in order to help combat the obesity epidemic in America. Part of the challenge can be done on the website and there are Challenge events held at certain locations in cooperation with State Farm. One of the critical parts of any weight loss Challenge is diet and exercise. This program contains a strong support network. In addition, when you sign up for the 50 Million Pound Challenge you can get several things to aid you like a pedometer for measuring the distance of walking.
The 50 Million Pound Challenge has a website where users can go, sign up, and input their weight. Every time they lose weight it’s calculated and added to the total. Every so often there are Challenge gatherings in cities with State Farm agencies where more people are encouraged to join and the dangers of obesity are discussed. You can request multiple Challenge kits, for yourself and for others. We feel that more people will be encouraged to lose weight if they feel they aren’t alone in their efforts. A strong support network can be very helpful to people trying to lose weight and that’s easily found on the 50 Million Pound Challenge website.
- In addition to the 50 Million Pound Challenge Dr. Smith has written a book called The Fat Smash Diet. In this book he details the different foods one can eat and good exercises which increase calorie use and help to lose healthily. It isn’t necessary to buy this book though it will likely help. It should be available on Amazon.
- Dr. Smith is an established writer and contributor to various magazines, news shows, and has written several books. He is knowledgeable about obesity and weight problems so you can be sure than any advice from him is likely to be effective.
- There is no set time frame in which to lose the weight or any set goal for the individual. This can be either a good or a bad thing but many people feel more motivated to set goals when there’s a clear time frame.
We feel that joining the 50 Million Pound Challenge can be an empowering step toward a healthier lifestyle. With the proper diet, exercise, and other healthy weight loss aids extra pounds can be lost.
