If there's a star to the newly launched Vemma Bod-e 2.0 app, it's TV Celebrity Transformation Specialist and bestselling author Chris Powell. The app, available as a free download for iPhone and Android, features timely text messages and daily video clips from Chris and his wife, Heidi, who act as the user's own personal trainer.
The app guides dieters through the Bod-e Transformation Plan, a carb-cycling weight loss program that the Powells developed for Vemma Nutrition Company, based off Chris Powell's New York Times bestselling book, Choose to Lose: The 7-Day Carb Cycle Solution.
"I often hear people say that they don't have time to lose weight. With the Vemma Bod-e app, people don't have that excuse anymore. It walks you through the entire program, day by day," says Chris Powell. "It's just like having Heidi and me right at your side, educating and motivating you every step of the way."
The multiple award-winning app sends users daily text messages about what and when to eat, exercise advice, and daily video tips from Chris and Heidi Powell. It also includes recipes and a weight loss tracker tool. The updated version of the app also includes fast food eating options from the 20 most popular fast food chains.
