Stephanie Averkamp

FitnessforWeightLoss.com was created by Stephanie Averkamp, a recognized health and fitness professional and sole-author of the content on this website.

Stephanie’s approach to weight loss emphasizes making small, realistic, and permanent lifestyle changes. Her message is clear and comes from her experience working with more than 1,000 adults trying to lose weight. Short-term solutions (like dieting) are unrealistic and ineffective because at some point they end. As soon as a diet or program ends, so do the results. Making small, gradual, and permanent changes to your lifestyle is the only way to achieve permanent results.
