TCA to start health program

The Truckload Carriers Association is taking applications for Trucking’s Weight Loss Showdown, a 10-week competition to start Jan. 24, 2012.

Carriers who plan to apply must enter six drivers and six office staff members and complete the application by Nov. 30. The contestants will be announced Jan. 1, 2012.

TCA has partnered with weight loss clinic Lindora Clinic, whose nurses will keep in touch with the participants during the low-carbohydrate, low-fat moderate protein process. The regimen will also include exercise, nutrition, education and lifestyle changes.

The progress will be announced at TCA’s Annual Convention in March, and winners will be announced in May at TCA’s Safety & Security Division Annual Meeting.

The application is at www.TruckingsWeightLossShowdown.com.
