ADVISORY for April 6-9

WHAT:

The “got milk?” Great American Weight Loss Challenge is coming to San Antonio. Claudia González, author of the book “Gordito Doesn’t Mean Healthy”, joins this national educational campaign that provides a 12-week program to lose weight in a healthy manner and challenges Hispanics to drink 24 ounces of milk every 24 hours.

The Challenge will visit San Antonio as part of their 75 cities’ tour, including the 8 most important Hispanic cities. Partnered with Curves International and Shape magazine, this grassroots effort will provide activities in which people can:

— Get their own milk mustache photo.

— Sample low-fat or fat-free milk from local dairies.

— Speak with a bilingual registered dietitian about healthy, long-term weight loss strategies.

— Receive a general health assessment that provides a benchmark for weight loss.

— Get exercise tips from representatives of Curves, the leader in women’s fitness.

— Get an autographed copy of Claudia González’s book, “Gordito Doesn’t Mean Healthy.”

WHY:

The Great American Weight Loss Challenge was created in 2005 due to the fact that obesity in the US has increased by more than 60% in the last 10 years. The Milk Processors Educational Program was designed to educate consumers about the benefits of milk and to help people lose weight in a healthy manner.

Recent studies show that eating breakfast regularly – particularly a breakfast of cereal and milk – can be very beneficial in achieving a healthy weight. The Challenge provides the necessary tools, including recipes, meal plans, and exercise programs. More than 80,000 have registered with the goal of achieving a healthier lifestyle.

WHO:

Claudia González, certified bilingual nutritionist, will be present during the tour to educate Hispanics about the milk benefits and the 12-week weight loss plan. González will provide the public with the following information:

— Tips to easily incorporate the daily 24 ounces of milk, starting with a cereal and milk breakfast.

— Studies that support the connection between milk, eating breakfast and losing weight.
