Renowned Registered Dietician Ashley Koff Lends Expertise to Sharecare’s Free Online Weight Loss Program

Transform YOU Adds More Experts, New Exclusive Content

Ashley_and_David_TYATLANTA, January 12, 2015 – Sharecare, a comprehensive online health and wellness platform created by Dr. Mehmet Oz and Jeff Arnold, has launched an enhanced version of Transform YOU, its free 12-week online program designed to help you lose weight responsibly, develop healthier habits, and improve your body and your life. Centered around customized workouts from celebrity fitness trainer David Buer, the all-new Transform YOU adds internationally-renowned registered dietician Ashley Koff, among others, to its roster of weight loss and wellness experts.

“One of the most important things I tell my clients is that you can’t out-train a bad diet,” said Buer. “By adding such a knowledgeable, creative nutrition expert like Ashley to Transform YOU, Sharecare is taking the program to a whole new level, and stands to help people make an even bigger impact on their personal health for the long term.”

Named to the Top 10 Registered Dietitians in the U.S. by Today’s Dietitian Magazine, Ashley is the creator of “The Qualitarian Nutrition Plan” and “The Ashley Koff Approved (AKA) Healthy Grocery List Planner.” Her philosophy emphasizes the value of quality nutrition choices to achieving optimal health, which is captured in the daily nutrition tips that she shares through Transform YOU.

“What initially drew me to Transform YOU is the fact that it’s customized so that anyone can participate, regardless of their fitness level; and that Sharecare and David are taking the intimidation out of being healthy,” said Koff. “I’m beyond thrilled to team up with Sharecare to provide their users with my simple tips and free coaching that will enable millions to reach their personal health goals.”

To keep participants motivated and focused during their weight loss journey, the new version of Transform YOU also provides users weekly tips from integrative medicine expert Dr. Robin Miller, and clinical psychologist and weight loss expert Dr. Ramani Durvasula.
