"This is a great way to show how it can still be easy and it can work into our busy lives. Fitness can work. A lot of our presentations talk about busy lifestyles and how you can still fit in fitness and a lot of our cooking demonstrations are on how you can have home cooked meals and not spend a lot of time in the kitchen," said La Crosse County Health Department dietician Jennifer Miller.
People can participate for free or pay $10 to be entered to win the cash prize in the weight loss challenge.
