    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 1

    Website: www.thehealthycopywriter.com The Truth About Diet, Exercise, and Weight Loss An estimated 70 percent of all adults in the United States are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means that in the U.S. alone, 154.7 million adults have a weight problem. Many attempt to follow fad diets, take dietary supplements, or even resort to weight reduction surgeries to lose body fat and change the way they look. But most fail. 2 Things Health and Fitness Content Must Provide These approaches to weight loss can serve as a starting point for people who want to lose weight, boost their metabolism, get in shape, and build muscle. But in order to be successful at weight loss, body transformation, or any muscle-building plan, there are two critical components that need to be part of the content you provide your readers: Education and motivation. Most people who want to lose weight, decrease body fat or build muscle, don’t quite know where to start or what to do. The result is a pattern of yo-yo dieting, weight loss and weight gain, or half-hearted attempts at progressive muscle building and weight-loss workouts. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Evidence-Based Content for Everyday Readers From a content perspective, if you want to tip the scale in the right direction and really help people achieve their health and fitness goals, you need high-quality, educational, engaging, and content-rich information blended with a little motivation to help them stay in the fight, keep trying, and put in the effort to make lasting lifestyle changes. Season that with evidenced-based research on diet and exercise, and your followers will keep coming back for more. Hire Me My name is Evan Jensen. I have a master’s degree in journalism and more than a decade of experience as a reporter, editor, and freelance writer for newspapers, magazines and corporate clients. As a kid, I watched my obese parents try every diet in the book without success, and resolved not to take the same path. I’ve finished 30 plus marathons and ultra-marathons, including a 100-mile mountain endurance run. And I’ve written thousands of articles in my writing career, including many about diet, exercise, fitness, nutrition, chronic disease, and preventive care. If you have writing or editing needs for articles, e-books, blogs, newsletters, press releases, feature stories, Q&As, case studies, marketing campaigns, or anything else, give me a shot at delivering high-quality content and making a good first impression. - Evan

    Writer

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 16

    I love writing. Writing and rewriting are my pleasure. I'm looking for opportunities to write, edit, proof, and generally perfect your documents or communications. Proper grammar and spelling are keys to my writing success. If you are not a native speaker of American English, I can help you sound like one. Three specialties of mine are 1) making your documents objective by removing subjective or first person terminology, 2) ghost writing to make your communication sound just like you, and 3) assuring your communication is clearly understood by your target audience(s). If you need a writer for internal items like policies and procedures, business and strategic plans, training curricula, and intranet content, I can help! I would also like to work for you if you need a writer for customer facing documents like marketing pieces, business correspondence / email, and presentations or web content. In addition, I can write, edit or correct dialogue so that your speeches, advertisements or scripts sound natural and confident. Give me a try! I look forward to easing your mind about what you say.
