It’s about more than appearance. It’s about more than getting into those jeans you bought years ago. When your weight goes up, so does your risk for:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Liver disease
- Respiratory problems
- Early death
You can be Built to Last. Or you can be significantly overweight. But not both. If your HealthCheck says “FIX” for weight, see your health coach. It really matters!
A Way to Watch Weight
Many Alliance employees have had success with Weight Watchers®. Check out their website: www.weightwatchers.com.
There’s even an online system built just for men. Comedian Lenny Clarke (no longer “Fat Eddie”) says “Weight Watchers didn’t change my life. It saved my life.”
Many Alliance Coal locations offer Weight Watchers. Ask your health coach about availability where you live and work.
Weight Watchers was ranked #1 in a 2011 study of 20 diets and diet programs. The 6-month study, conducted by nutritionists, dieticians, cardiologists, and diabetes experts, was sponsored by U.S. News & World Report.
