1000 Pounds of Love Work to Combat Childhood Obesity

Stacey Halprin, Oprah's #1 Weight Loss guest with 13 appearances on Oprah, and Ira Green, Weight Loss Camp Director for almost a decade, have been combating childhood obesity their whole lives.

    CARY, NC, March 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Stacey and Ira, whose combined weight at one point was 1035 pounds, together have lost over 550 pounds and more importantly, kept it off! Stacey and Ira are pleased to announce that Ira will direct an all-girls weight loss camp, Camp Friends 4ever, starting June 23rd at the prestigious College of William & Mary in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.

Camp Friends 4ever, is not just another fat camp, and is the only weight loss camp allowing campers themselves to choose most of their own activities, leading to a more rewarding and productive summer. Ira's previous campers over the past ten years experienced an average body weight loss of 10-14% in only 6-weeks; the minimum average body weight loss experienced was 7%. Campers at this summer camp for girls will experience a tremendous support system that stems from Ira's ability to relate emotionally and physically with obese children and teens.

"Campers will go home learning the proven tools necessary for long-term lifestyle changes", says Stacey, Camp Friends 4ever's national spokesperson. "Ira, the love of my life, will instill in the hearts of these girls his proven methods to lose weight and the will to keep it off for good." Stacey has been an excellent role model for kids at previous camps by teaching and reinforcing positive self-esteem. Kids love her make-overs, and classes on dramatic acting and improvisation.

Ira has helped hundreds of overweight children at his weight loss camps. Ira is firm in his goal of a rewarding camp experience where kids are comfortable in their surroundings, have fun, and return home with powerful lessons to ensure a healthy future. Ira strongly believes that, "NO child should have to endure the heartaches, persecution, and loneliness that Stacey and I have both experienced."

Camp Friends 4ever, "where winners lose", accepts the challenge to be a leader of healthy living and to provide the safest, most secure and most supportive weight loss camp for girls. Visit for more information about this summer's teen weight loss camp.
