The staffers at Challenge Home Live In Weight Loss knows that everyone needs a little something different when it comes to shedding pounds. It was with that in mind that they developed four programs to help their clients reach their goals whether they were checking in online, or visiting or staying at their cozy facilities. For a fraction of the cost of some of the big-name weight-loss ranches and resorts, onsite certified personal trainers and licensed nutritionists tackle fitness from all angles and provide motivational support via in-person meetings, emails, and text messages.
Endorsed by financial author Dave Ramsey and highlighted on Oprah Winfrey's Life Lift blog, eMeals charts out a week's worth of dollar- and health-savvy dinner recipes to relieve the burden of kitchen-related stress. Each week, organized grocery lists based on food style, family size, and even grocery store showcase flavorful culinary creations for discerning palates. Plans developed by working parents capitalize on sale items at stores such as Walmart, Publix, and Kroger, and an "any store" list can be used to navigate the aisles of other favored grocers. Family meal plans serve seven meals for three to six people, whereas plans for two are tailored to singles, couples, or a pair of sock puppets on a date atop a chest of drawers.
Special paleo, gluten-free, clean-eating, low-fat, and portion-controlled meal-plan options aid nongeneric eaters in assembling targets for their teeth and fitness regimens. The classic version of the Walmart family plan supplies culinary sustenance to families of three to six for an average weekly cost of $75?$85 and takes advantage of the store's regularly discounted prices. A duo can fill a Publix cart for $50?$60 a week, including side dishes.
Born of founder Jane DeLaney's desire to feed her family stress-free dinners provisioned from an organized list without coupons, eMeals allows shoppers to spend more time at the table and less time wandering about the grocery store uttering monophonic 10th-century chants in dismay.

At Whole Body Nutrition, registered holistic nutritionist Kirsten Janz knows that even the most die-hard health fanatic sometimes gets tired of raw broccoli and asparagus. That's why she develops personalized diets and meal plans based on clients'—and their families'—personal tastes as well as their current health conditions. She allots for such vices as red wine and chocolate by working them into creative recipes so they won't compromise the benefits of more nutritious servings or feel insecure after sitting on the shelf for too long.
The staff at Lavar Spa know that colon cleansing is a personal, delicate matter. That’s why they’ve equipped each of their treatment rooms with fully automated cleansing systems. In complete privacy, clients undergo colon hydrotherapy, which flushes waste and toxins from the body with a gentle stream of water. During the procedure, they can watch television, read, or nap. Wafting aromatherapy candles, an airy color scheme, and plush treatment tables whisk away minds more effectively than a mad scientist practiced in sleight of hand. Afterward, most patients report feeling lighter and more relaxed, but hydrotherapy can also mute abdominal pain, headaches, and constipation.
