"The contest is off to a great start and all 10 of our contestants have lost a good amount of weight in their first week. They are doing so well on our healthy, calorie-controlled meal plan and really making healthy lifestyle changes to help improve their health. I am so proud of them," said Seattle Sutton, RN, BSN, Founder and President of Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating.

The contest is a 15-week weight loss challenge that began on January 7, 2013 and will conclude on April 22, 2013 and will provide the chosen contestants with the 1,200-calorie SSHE meal plan. Meals included in the contest are every breakfast, lunch and dinner for the contestants (21 meals per week), a total of 315 meals in all, for the entire contest. Contestants are to add 2 glasses of fat-free (skim) milk each day and a minimum of eight glasses of water per day.

For 15 weeks, 10 chosen contestants will compete for prizes and improve their health by making a positive lifestyle change. The contestant who loses the most weight based on percentage of body weight will be heading to Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Mexico with a guest courtesy of Apple Vacations. Second place prize will win $1,000 cash from Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating. Third place prize will win a year membership to Landmark Racquet and Health Club.

Contestants will also have blood work completed, once at the beginning of the contest and once at the end, to measure fasting blood sugar, as well as their blood pressure taken. This is a free service provided by Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating, as part of the contest. Contestants will be weighed each week at their Peoria Tri-Counties distributor location when they pick up their SSHE meals.
