OTTAWA, IL–(Marketwire – Jan 7, 2013) – Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating (SSHE), the premier meal replacement company in the country, kicks off its Peoria Tri-Counties weight loss contest called Seattle Sutton’s 2013 Slim Down. For 15 weeks, 10 chosen contestants will compete for prizes and improve their health by making a positive lifestyle change.
Seattle Sutton’s 2013 Slim Down Contest is the first of its kind for the Peoria Tri-Counties area. SSHE had its first successful weight loss contest for the Chicago area in 2010, when 10 contestants lost a total of 372 pounds in 14 weeks. In 2012, 9 LaSalle County residents lost a total of 510 pounds in 15 weeks. And, in the summer of 2012, 10 DuPage County contestants lost 355 pounds in 15 weeks.
“I’m thrilled to help these 10 people take on this weight loss challenge. Not only do they receive our freshly prepared meals at no cost, but they also compete for some great prizes too. I know making changes is difficult, I’ve seen it first-hand over the course of 27 plus years helping people eat healthy. But, it can be done and we can help. Healthy eating is essential in overall good health and good health is the most important asset one has in life, without it, nothing else matters,” said Seattle Sutton, RN, BSN, Founder and President of Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating.
Sutton continued, “I want each and every one of our 10 contestants to achieve their goals to lose weight in the New Year and live a healthier life.”
The family owned company based in Ottawa, Ill., is headed by 81-year old registered nurse Seattle Sutton, who founded the company in hopes of helping to improve people’s eating habits and overall health by providing the healthiest meals possible. The company has never veered off the mission Sutton created since it began in 1985. Since the company’s inception, the company has prepared and provided clients coast-to-coast with more than 80 million meals to date.
The contest is a 15-week weight loss challenge beginning January 7, 2013 and concluding 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.
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. 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.
The 10 Seattle Sutton’s 2013 Slim Down contestants competing for improved health and great prizes are:
Scott Deatherage, 51 of Washington, Ill. Maria Diaz, 58 of Peoria, Ill. Rhonda Elmore, 43 of Peoria, Ill. Roberta English, 41 of Peoria, Ill. Renee Farris, 49 of Peoria, Ill.

How The Computer Is Supporting Us In Our Healthy Lifestyle? How do computer helps people in their healthy lifestyle? How can The computer help people? Is it from websites? advertisements? I need it really badly. How can the computer is supporting to improve our healthy lifestyle. in what ways? How can computer promote the quality of healthy lifestyle. How can computer convince people to stop unnecessary things like drugs or alcohol? How can computer HELP us?
AT least 6-8 points would do. thank you.
The computer is not a healthy lifestyle for people. It programs us to thinking we can find everything on here. Jobs, pay bills, shop, everything! We can do that ourselves and it seems technology is taking the chores away from us, that can be easily done by human themself. The computer can help us though when we need to find information, imformation fast. Websites help us retain information, advertisements are just like commericals there just trying to sell or maniupulate us to buy whatever their advertising. The computer is not improving our healthy lifestyle. Peoples eyes can go out of sight and hurt very badly(like mine and i’m only 15 years old.) from years and years staring at the computer. The worst thing to stare at is a computer screen — I don’t know why I still do it for hours at end, but I do. The computer will never promote the quality of healthy lifestyle, its just not possible. The computer can convince people to stop drugs and alcohol but if you think about it would you rather have an obsession over the computer for hours at the day, you have to be near the computer you have to be on it then doing drugs or alcohol? The computer is just as bad addiction as alcohol and drugs. The computer cannot HELP us other then give us fast information when we need it. The computer although has so much information and so many untrusted sites you never know if what your reading is a lie. And I hope I get 10 points because I just wasted my time answering this long question, I hope you weren’t just asking this for the heck of this — I hope it was for some essay lol.
Take care bye
What Are Some Healthy Lifestyle Changes To Make? So I’ve started drinking more water. I drink Green, White, and Chai tea. I also bought the stainless steel water bottle, and I bike for about 20-30 minutes a day. I consider these healthy lifestyle changes. I was wondering if you could provide more suggestions along these lines.
There are 5 elements in a healthy lifestyle.
5. extra healthy things
1. Food, we don’t really know that much about nutrition, we do know a blanced diet, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is good for you. Meat is pretty good, if it is lean and not eaten too often….ideally I might eat meat once or twice a week. A good healthy diet can include some indulgences.
2. Exercise, you should do some. Though I don’t recommend routine exercise, cycle 2 or 3 times a week, join a social sports club, eg, tennis, go hiking on weekends, swimming is one of the best exercises for the whole body. If you vary your exercise, then you will enjoy it more and do more.
3. Sleep. A lot of evidence says if you don’t get enough sleep you will have problems, eat more, metabolise your food differently and die young.
4. Be happy, enjoy your life. Drink dance, eat chocolate, but not all day, everyday.
5. Then there are all the little extras. eg, green tea (there is no such things as Chai tea….chai means tea, it is an indian word derived from the chinese word Cha, meaning tea), red wine, brocollie and beetroot, lots of things than can boost your body, ginger, garlice and hundreds of other things that you can add to your diet to make things a little better.
Don’t obsess, don’t live by a book or a routine, just be healthy.
How Do You Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle? Please comment on your suggestions to maintain a healthy lifestyle, add any concerns or issues you have concerning you’re healt, and i’ll be happy to educate you further.

What Would You Say A Healthy Lifestyle Is? Hey 🙂 I’ve got some coursework that needs doing and I need to do some primary reasearch and I was just wondering if you would leave me some answers below on what you think a healthy lifestyle is personally. And what you think you have to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I need loads of answers so I hope you dont mind helping me 🙂 Thankyouu
Healthy lifestyle…involves eating right, exercing, and relationships you have with others. Also if you live in a clean environment…messy=germs=sickness…and to maintain a healthy lifestyle you need to frequenlty eat right, do some sort of physical activity, be nice to others (stress is bad for health), and keep a clean home
How Do You Stay Commited To Your Healthy Lifestyle? I’m trying have a healthy lifestyle and lose weight but i’m finding it hard to commit.
Are you sure you want to lose weight? If this a true desire, give it two weeks, and then asses how you feel. If you are eating healthy and exercises you will feel the difference, then if you go back to living unhealthfully you will be able to tell the change in how you feel, then you should be able to make an easy desicion.
Is Dairy An Important Part Of A Healthy Lifestyle? I consume 3 servings of dairy in the first half of my day, and none later on. Is dairy important to maintain a healthy lifestyle?
Calcium, not dairy specifically, is what’s important to a healthy lifestyle. Many other things have calcium like broccoli, nuts, fish, water, etc. The amounts are smaller though so you’d have to consume a lot more of them to get the calcium that you need, which is why people find it easier to get it through dairy. Our bodies don’t actually absorb all the calcium from dairy products very well because of the fat in them; that is why “western” societies actually have the highest rates of osteoperosis, where countries that don’t consume dairy products at all but get calcium from other sources, actually have stronger bones and very low rates of this disease.
