About 45 percent of women and 25 percent of men are trying to lose weight at any one time, yet obesity rates continue to rise at an alarming rate. Currently, 34% percent of U.S. adults are considered overweight, and an additional 31 percent are obese. What are they doing wrong?

Any dieter will tell you that they can lose weight on a diet, but the challenge is keeping the weight off. Only 1 in 5 dieters manage to keep off a 10% weight loss for a year or more. Statistics like this are discouraging for people who know they need to lose weight. The good news is that we have learned from those who have been successful, and we are now able to teach people the habits, behaviors and tips that lead to successful and permanent weight loss.

Evolve, a new wellness coaching and consulting company, is offering free monthly telecourses each month from November through April 2006. Classes are free to those who register, although long distance charges may apply. "Opening classes to the public will increase awareness of a non-dieting approach to weight loss as well as introduce the public to Evolve and our services," says Jonna Reynolds, founder and CEO of Evolve.

The first telecourse is "Why Diets Don’t Work for Permanent Weight Loss, and What Does". The course will be held on Wednesday, November 16th from 6-7:30 MST. Participants will learn how traditional diets can sabotage long term success and how to make lifestyle changes that will bring you long term, lasting results. To register for the class and receive dial in information, visit the website at or call 480-248-2428.

"While there will always be another fad diet for those who want to lose weight quickly, there will also be those that have tried all the fads and are ready for solid, research based advice to do it right- once and for all. Once people realize that there are no shortcuts to healthy weight loss, we are here to sort out fact from fiction and guide our clients to long term success," says Reynolds.
