FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- While DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) earned accolades from US News & World Report as the Best Overall Diet in its recently published evaluation, TEN, the new online Wellness and Weight Management program created by nutritionist, Laura Klein, MS utilized the same premises for developing its individualized health and nutrition plan.
"From the beginning, we realized that the food selections that prevent high blood pressure and hypertension, are the same selections that fight heart disease, reduce Type 2 Diabetes and reduce the risk of certain cancers," said Klein, "TEN emphasizes eating vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, protein and seafood following the USDA's recommended servings for each individual. Our entire program is based on medical studies and science—nutritional and behavioral--so we know TEN works."
Unlike the diet plan giants, TEN does NOT force the user to count calories, buy special foods or attend meetings. TEN is a simple and fun online tool that guides members through their daily choices of what to Eat and Do, earning credits for healthy choices, while aiming to score a TEN each day. Types of foods and portions are determined by the individual's unique profile and the program uses algorithms to total the credits each day based on food intake and activity level. The TEN Program monitors the user's servings, and starts deducting credits when the user exceeds the recommendations, teaching balance and portion control. Credits are also assigned for behaviors with significant health impacts, such as exercise, sleep, rejuvenation and sex. An easy drag and drop menu lets members see the immediate impact of their choices, positive and negative. If they "cheat" on a dessert, users can offset with additional exercise, taking time to regenerate or cutting down on TV watching or sitting. Achieving TEN each day is an ongoing, achievable goal; tallying the Impact Score influences behavior and demonstrates the value that making small changes has significant health impacts.
As a professional nutritionist, Klein exemplifies the TEN principles, keeping a work-life balance between being an entrepreneur, mother and wife. She manages a global team, takes time to prepare healthy meals for her family and savors her own time for exercise as an avid runner and triathlete—proving the success of TEN. "My goal was to make good health enjoyable and TEN does that by making an educational game of choices; it is easy and fun to log-in and see where you are each day. You can lose weight or maintain, choosing your goals and taking action to achieve them. It's very simple: Eat, Do, Be--what you Eat plus what you Do equals what you Become and we can achieve our highest goals—we can all Be TEN!"
TEN kicks off 2014 with a New Year's Resolution special; both the Well and Weight programs are priced at $18.95 per month and the normal sign-up fee has been waived to open the program to all adults who want to stick to this year's resolution to make healthy lifestyle changes. "We believe we have great value in our program," says Klein. "We offer an easy, personalized online method of gauging choices, educational information about food groups, servings and choices, no long-term contracts and NO calorie counting. You can't beat TEN, but you can BE TEN!"

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
