xUPDATE: More than 5,000 Canadians have vowed to lose a combined 56.6-plus tons of fat in six months as part of the X-Weighted national challenge.

As you read here last month, Slice’s award-winning documentary series is urging all out-of-shape Canadians to log onto xweighted.ca/the-national-challenge. It’s a free six-month health and fitness challenge designed to create lasting lifestyle improvements and stimulate sensible weight loss.

“It’s just phenomenal to be able to reach out to Canada in this way,” X-Weighted fitness expert Paul Plakas said in a press release.

Margaret Mardirossian, executive producer of Anaid Productions, added: “It would appear that X-Weighted is no longer just a TV series, it’s becoming a movement. We are mobilizing people to take action, network and support one another in the efforts to get fit, lose weight and get healthy.”

X-WEIGHTED is produced by Anaid Productions with the participation of the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund and the Canadian Television Fund and in association with Canwest Broadcasting.
