This summer, ABC-TV’s “Extreme Weight Loss” series has shared the stories of people conquering weight woes with the help of the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC) on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. This fall, the Center is offering a transformation experience inspired by the show.
Participants in Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp will spend a week at the AHWC in order to learn how to lose weight and keep if off for good. A transformation coach guides participants through a six-day schedule of physical activity, mindfulness exercises and nutrition education based on principles from “State of Slim,” co-authored by Holly Wyatt, M.D., the center’s medical director.
“Each week, ABC’s ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ tells the story of one person’s transformation,” Wyatt said. “With our new Destination Boot Camp program, everyone now has the opportunity to experience transformation at the best place in the world for weight loss – the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center.”
Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp is based on over 30 years of science-based research in weight loss and nutrition. It is a yearlong weight loss program if participants complete all four scientifically-based phases:
PHASE 1 — BELIEVE IT

PHASE 4 — CELEBRATE IT
