On November 18th, 2016, Shortlister hosted Wally Gomaa, the CEO of ACAP Health, and Dr. Tim Church, nationally recognized physician and expert in preventive medicine, in our “Meet-a-Vendor” webinar series to introduce their Naturally Slim program, which focuses on the Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) risk cluster and the related risk factors of obesity.
Naturally Slim is an online, skill-building program centered on the latest scientific understanding of nutrition and obesity. It provides users with a customized portal that offers a combination of tailored videos and digital tools to help each person develop the long-term skills to improve their health and reverse the risk of chronic disease. The program starts with ten weeks of skill-building focused on behavior modification, not dieting. After the first ten weeks, participants receive on-going instruction and support to reinforce the learned skills for one full year to ensure long-term, sustainable results. Designed and administered by experienced medical professionals and based on the most effective clinical weight loss programs, it is endorsed by many respected medical professionals, hospital systems, and organizations.
Following the introduction of Naturally Slim, Dr. Church talked about ACAP Health’s first clinical research paper that was published in “Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders” in October 2015. In this short-term analysis of almost 4,000 participants over 3 months, ACAP Health saw 6 percent weight loss in men and 5 percent in women, which is right in line with the Federal Obesity Treatment Guidelines which show that sustained weight loss of 5% produces clinically meaningful benefits. More importantly, for participants with Metabolic Syndrome, a full 50 percent reversed the condition and no longer had metabolic syndrome at follow-up, which is the real goal.
The purpose of the program is to teach participants the skills they need to lose weight and keep it off long term to measurably decrease their diabetes risk, hypertension risk, and more. And, because the program has been so successful with participants to date, ACAP Health provides a 100 percent performance guarantee.
