Starfruit Cafe to Provide Healthy Kefir Treats at Naked Fitness Event

November 1, 2010

CHICAGO, Nov. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Starfruit Cafe, home of healthy frozen treats made from Lifeway Kefir, is partnering with Andrea Metcalf, NBC Chicago’s fitness expert and author of Naked Fitness: The Proven 28-Day Weight Loss Program for a Slimmer, Fitter, Pain-Free Body, to host the Naked Fitness Lifestyle Makeover–Shape Up Chicago Walk in Chicago on November 2. Starfruit Cafe will lend its great tasting healthy, natural and organic dairy treats to the event, which will focus on healthy eating and starting a 30-day fitness plan to increase self-confidence.

The Shape Up Chicago Walk will kick-off at 3 p.m. Tuesday at Starfruit Cafe in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. Starfruit Cafe will have healthy treats and refreshments on hand, as well as information about the benefits of the probiotics found in Lifeway Kefir before and after the walk. More than $1,000 in prizes will be awarded to participants throughout the duration of Andrea Metcalf’s Naked Fitness Lifestyle Makeover, including yoga mats, gym shoes, Rollerblades and a workout session in the Naked Fitness Challenge December 1 with Metcalf, a regular Today Show and Oprah.com contributor.

Metcalf’s classes were designed to inspire people to change their bodies and minds through personalized workouts and specially designed meals. Beauty consultations and product demonstrations will also be part of the event.

“The Naked Fitness Lifestyle Makeover classes are all about getting to the bare essentials in fitness–stripping away excuses and saboteurs, and starting over with a clean slate,” Metcalf said. “It’s about getting down to the core to learn the right 30-day diet and fitness plan that will help you be able to look in the mirror next time you change your clothes.”

Starfruit Cafe will also provide ProBugs at the Kenmore Kitchen Live Studio event on November 1, which includes a class on how to stock a nutritious fridge for kids. ProBugs are made with organic whole milk kefir for growing kids ages 2-9 and contain 10 live and active cultures that help support the digestive and immune systems.

“We’re excited to have Starfruit Cafe’s nutritious treats play an active role in Metcalf’s nutrition and health-centered classes,” said Julie Smolyansky, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods.
