Meet Eric & Maleka Beal
We are here to help you change your life. Change is easy. It’s the CHOICE to change that makes us uncomfortable. The truth is we make choices everyday. From the time God wakes you up, you make simple, and what seems to be difficult decisions all day, everyday. Choices as simple as deciding what time you brush your teeth, eat your next meal, what clothes to wear, who you talk to, what you decide to say, what you decide or DON’T decide to do, etc…seems like a lot right? Yes, and they are all YOUR CHOICES.
We help you identify and understand the options. We provide the tools to help establish a complete understanding. It’s that understanding that makes the choice to change easier. It all starts with truth.
“The truth is, over the last 4 decades, America’s obesity rates, deaths associated with obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes has steadily increased at alarming rates. According to the CDC,
• Over 60 MILLION adults are obese.
• 1 out of 3 kids and teens are obese.
• 7 out of 10 adults are overweight or obese.
• 8 out of 10 African American women are overweight or obese.
To say the least, obesity and its effects has become an epidemic.” For Eric & Maleka, they were both part of these staggering statistics. Their journey to shedding the pounds was bigger than just losing the weight; it was truly a journey to change and save their own lives.
Today, Eric and Maleka Beal are on a mission to teach, motivate, and empower men, women, couples & families to change their thought processes in order to change their life – one betterchoice at a time. Both New Orleans natives, Eric proudly served five years with the United States Army. He is an honored Gulf War combat veteran and recipient of the Kuwaiti Liberation Medal.
