H-E-B Slim Down Showdown

Kathy Duran-Thal, RDN, LD, has been the Director of Nutrition for Cooper Wellness for more than 25 years and all who interact with her praise her extensive knowledge, ability to relate and fun personality. In January, Kathy helped kick off the H-E-B Slim Down Showdown, a 12-week health and fitness program for H-E-B grocery store partners (employees) and customers. She spent a week teaching 30 program participants nutrition the Cooper way.

In the weeks since then, participants have had individual phone coaching with Kathy, logged their food, exercised and shared their journey in personal blogs. Kathy recently traveled to San Antonio for the H-E-B Slim Down Showdown finale.

Elizabeth Sandoval, a quality assurance technician at H-E-B’s bakery in Corpus Christi, and Richard Arrington, an H-E-B shopper from Aransas Pass, Texas, were two of the participants Kathy coached. Each of them won a $5,000 “Healthy Hero” prize for their involvement and dedication to the program. Richard, who originally weighed in at 385 pounds, improved his cholesterol by 75 percent, decreased his body fat by 36 percent and lost a total of 66.6 pounds.

H-E-B Kicks Off “Slim Down Showdown” at Cooper Wellness

January 31, 2012 Leave a comment


You may have seen the article in The Dallas Morning News regarding our partnership with H-E-B Grocery, regarding the “Slim Down Showdown,” a program focused on helping their employees adopt healthy habits and start a healthy lifestyle. We were very excited to kick-off the program here at Cooper for a customized week of Wellness.


The kick-off sets the tone for the entire program. Their week at Cooper included a baseline health assessment, nutritional lectures, cooking classes and field trips to learn how to grocery shop and eat out wisely. It’s essentially everything participants need to take control of their life. To view their complete schedule click here.

At Cooper we provide the foundation – the scientifically valid, proven methods for improving health. As we like to say, we help people Get Cooperized so they can make good health a habit to live better. For the Slim Down Showdown, H-E-B provided another critical component: technology. The 12 H-E-B participants in the program are using blogs and vlogs to share their journey with more than 76,000 H-E-B employees. They are wellness champions serving as the catalyst for changing their company’s culture to one where health is a key priority.

Ultimately, this is about saving lives. These people are not only going to change their own lives, they are influencing their friends, family and the entire company.

The Wellness program that we used with H-E-B can be adopted for any corporation, and is also open to the public one week out of every month. If you’re interested in improving your health we can help you get there.
