Retrofit: Data-Driven Weight Loss

We are so excited to learn about Retrofit, a new data-driven weight loss program that is designed for busy people who are juggling a hectic life. When you sign up for Retrofit, you get a team of wellness experts that include a dietitian, behavior coach, and exercise physiologist. They all help you build your personal weight loss program. The focus is on losing 10 percent of your body weight. That seems pretty manageable, right? Retrofit research shows that losing 10 percent of your body weight can dramatically increase your quality of life, and reduce your risk of disease.

Private weekly sessions with your experts are easier to fit into your schedule with online video conferencing. Your custom program starts with 152 data points, and is tailored daily with data from your wireless devices. A smart activity tracker clips on discreetly to give you feedback on activity by day and sleep by night. You step on a wi-fi body composition scale once a day to keep you honest and your numbers up to date. And most importantly, from the first day of weight loss through long-term weight stability, your program advisor is available to help you. We loved taking this online quiz, which is a lifestyle patterns inventory. It takes just a few minutes to complete, and it will provide you with valuable feedback in your in-box! This has got us thinking about our goals for 2012!
