“Taking care of your body can be easy and convenient.” – Linda Harteis

Grand Rapids, Mich., July 28, 2006 – According to results from a recent Gallop Poll, 56% of Americans report they want to lose weight, including 18% who say they would like to lose “a lot” of weight. Government statistics show that about 30% of American adults can be classified as obese.
“People see that weight is a health issue and want to do something about it,” says Fred Harteis of the Independent Business Owners Association International ( “Our members, Quixtar Independent Business Owners, have what you need to lose weight and achieve optimal health.”
“There are many avenues a person can choose to lose weight, each of which ultimately revolves around the same foundation: eat less, move more,” says Linda Harteis.
“The TRIM BODY SYSTEM from Quixtar simplifies your quest for optimal health by teaching lasting lifestyle change - a transformation of the mind, body, and spirit that starts with TRIM ADVANTAGE® and NUTRILITE® weight-loss support products,” notes Harteis.
“The TRIM BODY SYSTEM is unique from other diets because it considers every aspect of your life from what you eat, to how much you move, to the supplements you take,” explains Fred Harteis.
“The TRIM BODY SYSTEM Protein Plus Diet, developed by the Better Life Institute® in partnership with the Nutrilite Health Institute, is an easy to follow plan the whole family will enjoy. It focuses on smaller portions, regular meals, increased amounts of high-quality proteins, fruits, vegetables and “good” fats,” says Linda Harteis.
“The second step in the TRIM BODY SYSTEM is the 4-3-2-1 Body Training System that helps you build a lifelong foundation of fitness in ten minutes a day,” adds Fred Harteis. “The TRIM BODY SYSTEM also includes TRIM ADVANTAGE and NUTRILITE foods and supplements to support your weight management efforts.”
“The TRIM BODY SYSTEM and other fine TRIM ADVANTAGE and NUTRILITE products are available exclusively through Quixtar Independent Business Owners in the United States and Canada,” says Fred Harteis.
