London-based Natural Weight Loss Company recently launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube to raise £55,000 to fight against obesity with a new milkshake, MaxMeal.
The company, which was created by nutritionist Max Tomlinson and his wife Filipa Tomlinson, shared:
“Obesity is a global problem costing $2 trillion, and making Britain one of most overweight countries in Europe. The Natural Weight Loss Company has pioneered a range of healthy meal shakes as an innovative method of losing weight without compromising on taste and enjoyment. The Company is now looking for investment to roll out a full range of products, and help thousands more lose weight.
“We believe the problem is that the solutions currently offered by national governments, the medical profession and the food industry are not making any significant difference to the obesity pandemic. People are getting fatter each year with a recent Neilsen report revealing that over 52% of people in Europe consider themselves overweight.”
Natural Weight Loss Company unveiled its solution by offering a “super-healthy, plant-based, calorie controlled liquid meal” that replaces one or meals per day. The company noted that there is no need for a count points, add up calories buy specific diet foods and its approach is backed by numerous healthy reports:
“We have placed ‘ease-of-use’ at the heard of our business and have made losing weight a stress free, simple process. Our nutrition team have blended together a totally natural and filling shake called MaxMeal. We pride ourselves in our natural delicious Cocoa-Choc, Wild Strawberry, and Velvety Vanilla shakes. They mix very well with water or your choice of liquid, have a fabulous mouth-feel and are really easy to use.”
