Harris Teeter Introduces a FREE Life Enhancement Program
The new yourwellness for life program has been designed to help participants get healthy, stay healthy, and feel great.


Harris Teeter realizes that its shoppers live busy lives and sometimes they don’t have as much time as they would like to focus on their wellness.  With its customers’ health in mind, Harris Teeter has been diligently working on a new program called yourwellness for life over the past year.  The program will help participants get healthy, stay healthy and feel great.

The yourwellness for life program is a life enhancement program, not simply a weight management program, though aspects of it can be used to help achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. Harris Teeter is currently distributing guidebooks and 7-Day meal planners to its stores allowing participants to incorporate the program into their New Year’s resolutions. 

The guidebook takes participants through a 15-week program designed to optimize health and wellbeing by offering nutrition information, stress management techniques, menu planning, recipes, a walking program, and so much more.  Everyday, participants will be able to earn up to 16 points by living their lives a little healthier.

In addition to the guidebook, a FREE 7-day meal planner is also available. The 7-day meal planner provides participants with healthy eating options to achieve their daily points and approximate daily caloric totals.

The information contained in both the guidebook and the 7-day meal planner is also available on harristeeter.com.  In addition, you can view healthy cooking recipes, a video on how to read a food label, and much more at harristeeter.com.

Harris Teeter has partnered with Russell Greenfield, M.D. to develop this program.  Dr. Russ completed his residency training in emergency medicine at Harbor/UCLA Medical Center and subsequently entered into an administrative / teaching fellowship at the same institution. Dr. Russ was also one of the first four physicians worldwide to be admitted into the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at The University of Arizona College of Medicine under the tutelage of Dr. Andrew Weil.  He is an amazing interview and would be available for your organization, if you decide you can do a story on January 1st.

Harris Teeter is committed to providing its customers with the best shopping experience possible.  The yourwellness for life program is just another way to show shoppers we care.  This program is for informational purposes and should not be considered medical advice.  Harris Teeter would like to encourage its shoppers to check with their doctor before making changes to their diet.
