In a bid to help Ghanaians regain and maintain their health, a weight management programme dubbed “P4 lose to win challenge” has been held in Accra over the weekend.
The challenge which also sought to address the problem of obesity with products from Edmark Company, rewarded participants for their discipline in achieving their healthy Body Mass Index (BMI), with special crowning of P4 Ambassadors when a contestant achieves his or her ideal BMI in a 90-day challenge.
At the end of the challenge, Charity Chuwuma won the first prize after shedding off 10 kilogramme of her initial weight of 68 kilogramme representing 45.5 per cent weight loss after 90 days.
She was followed by Catherine Bobson who also shed off 10 kilogramme out of 74 kilogramme 37.0 per cent while Christiana Inkabi and Esther Nana Apau placed third and fourth after losing 36.6 and 36.2 per cent of their weights respectively.
Ikabi and Apau both lost 13 kilogramme and 17 kilogramme out of their initial weights of 90 kilogramme and 87 kilogramme respectively.
The Chief Operating Officer of Edmark Company in charge of the branding team, Miss Eeping Yeoh in a speech read on her behalf said obesity was caused by ignorance among individuals, families, and societies which was evident among most Ghanaians.
She said the disease was a growing global epidemic, penetrating every walk of life around the world and that her outfit has pledged its full commitment in combating obesity, not just with healthy food supplements, but more importantly, with education.
She said with the company’s weight loss initiatives, distributors were encouraged to turn their weight loss journeys into a business opportunity and an example for others to emulate.
Miss Yeoh said one of the ways the company sought to assist its independent distributors was in the efforts of expanding their business teams through the company’s business fair dubbed ‘Edmark’s Bizfair”
The Bizfair, she said was aimed at exhibiting the opportunity that the company offers to Ghanaians to reclaim and maintain their health, a path towards financial freedom, and a means to better their lives.
She added that the exhibits at the fair would answer questions that Ghanaians would have regarding the business, the products and the company as a whole.
