EFFECTIVE: The University of Michigan Kinesiology Department conducted a study on a contest featuring 1,150 participants and they determined that Dump Your Plump was significantly effective in promoting nutrition and exercise and keeping the weight off in a one year period.
ENTERTAINING: As you can see from the team names such as the "Fat Wienies," "Tons of Buns," "Purchasing Pachyderms," and "Gut Changes Forthcoming," the possibilities for team building, camaraderie, and FUN are endless.
EMPOWERING: With the emphasis on education through the participantís manual, newsletters, and the team support that develops, people are empowered to make lasting life style changes concerning exercise and nutrition.
