Personal Best® Partners with Diet Detective, Charles Stuart Platkin, JD, MPH, to Develop Health and Wellness Materials that Encourage Healthy Food Choices

Developed in cooperation with Charles Stuart Platkin, the Think B4 You Eat poster series encourages individuals to consider their food choices by comparing many popular foods against healthy alternatives.

Birmingham, AL, November 3, 2009 (PRWEB) — Personal Best®, a leader in employee wellness solutions, announces the release of the Think B4 You Eat poster series developed in partnership with Charles Stuart Platkin, JD, MPH, known to audiences as the Diet Detective.

Based on the concept that the best eating plan for weight loss is counting calories — whether from fat, protein or carbohydrates — the Think B4 You Eat poster series encourages individuals to think about their food choices. The posters are intended to be purchased by employers and displayed in workplace settings. The Think B4 You Eat poster series will help encourage employees to lead healthier lifestyles as it compares a variety of foods and how much exercise is required to burn off calories from each item.

"We are very excited to partner with the Diet Detective in developing a poster series that will encourage individuals in the workplace to think about their food choices and the consequences of eating certain foods," said Senior Vice President and Publisher for Personal Best, Charles Dismuke.

Charles Stuart Platkin, is known to many audiences as the Diet Detective — host of the series, I Want to Save Your Life, and founder of DietDetective.com. He is also a syndicated columnist for more than 100 daily newspapers, author of numerous books, and one of the nation's leading public health advocates. Dedicated to helping Americans get fit and feel great, Platkin's highly motivating articles will appear monthly in the Personal Best Healthlines online supplement, Well Connections.

"I am very excited about partnering with Personal Best in developing the Think B4 You Eat poster series. I know it will help educate the public about their food choices and the impact those choices can have on their lives and their health," said Charles Stuart Platkin.
