There?s still time to lose weight for summer and slip into those bikinis and Speedos, but maybe you need a little push. That push arrives Friday in the form of City 2 City, a three-week weight-loss challenge for adults 18 and over in the greater Sacramento region to lose weight with the help of personal coaches and a doctor-recommended nutrition plan. Wellness Depot, a nutrition club in Roseville, is giving away free smoothies from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday to launch the contest. Stop by to check out the weigh-ins and taste options from the nutrition plan, which includes 35 smoothie choices. The city-wide contest aims to challenge 500 participants throughout the area to try new options for healthy living for long-term heath success. ?Losing sight of good nutrition has affected the overall health of our society. City 2 City will bring a part of greater Sacramento back to proper nutrition to see benefits in health and weight loss,? said City 2 City Director Partice Sweilem in a press release. Top-placing participants will win cash prizes. Participants must cover diet costs. Sign up for the contest, which ends Aug. 5, at www.wellnesscity2city.com.
