I’ve been hearing the commercials for Lindora on KFI, a radio station in southern California for many years now. The program has been endorsed by one of my favorite radio personalities, Bill Handel, who has personally used the Lindora weight loss program. The other day, I had the opportunity to get to know a little bit more about Lindora, at the Battle of the Badges finale, that took place at the Norco state prison.
The Battle of the Badges is a yearly competition that is hosted by Lindora to help bring awareness about obesity and heart disease among prison guards—a problem that afflicts prison guards so profoundly that according to a 40 year study, 4 out of 5 law enforcement are overweight and 50% will die of cardiovascular disease within 5 years of retirement. The statistics are staggering!
Thursday, 26 competitors, including California Corrections officers and San Bernardino Sheriff’s deputies revealed their 10 week results after following the diet and lifestyle regimen by Lindora, which is highlighted in the book, “The New Lean for Life.” Ten weeks ago, California prison guards from the Norco State Prison faced off against the San Bernardino Sheriff deputies in a battle to lose the most weight. The results? They were absolutely amazing! Here are just a few of the accomplishments in just 10 short weeks:
- 20 participants lost a combined total of 829.7 lbs — an average weight loss of 41.5 lbs per participant.
- 17 of the 20 participants lost 30+ lbs, 12 lost 40+ lbs and 4 lost 50+ lbs.
- Participants had an average BMI of 38.6 at the start of the competition – now it’s 32.5
- Participants lost a combined total of 109.4 inches in their waist—an average of 5.5 inches each
Each of the participants came out, holding their “before” photos and when the photos were dropped, their dramatic results were undeniably amazing!
…And the Winner Is?
The California Department of Corrections officers took away the trophy, with a total weight loss of 556 pounds! WOW! Bill Beauchemin was the most victorious of all the competitors, losing a total of 59 pounds! Outstanding results! Even the prison’s warden, Cynthia Tampkins participated in the competition and lost weight! All the participants were truly winners, accomplishing much in the fight against obesity.
The competition costs were covered by the Lean for Life Foundation, which provides weight loss support to those who are unable to afford it, as well as providing research and, community education and outreach. It’s a great program and they’ve been supporting the Battle of the Badges competition for 6 years.
I spoke with a few of the participants of the Battle of the Badges. The feedback I received from them was that it was a simple program to follow and they loved the support they got from the Lindora staff.
The Lindora staff and CEO were on hand to answer questions and to celebrate the success of the participants, during the Lindora inspired lunch that followed. I had an opportunity to try it and it was tasty! Lunch consisted of an oriental salad with chicken breast and orange slices, beef Colorado, chicken parmesan, squash, and chicken florentine sausage.
I learned a lot about Lindora and I’m excited to say that I’m going to start this week! I’m super excited about the program and the support they offer. It was amazing to see first hand what the program can do. I can’t wait to see my ten week results!
