Genghis Grill Crowns 2014 Health Kwest Winner


It pays to lose weight, especially for one hard-working fan of Genghis Grill.

Blake Miller of Denton, Texas, was just awarded the $10,000 grand prize in the 4th annual Genghis Grill Health Kwest after losing 76 pounds (more than 25 percent of his body weight) in 60 days!

The nationwide contest launched in February with 105 “khantestants” accepting the challenge to achieve a healthier lifestyle by eating a free Genghis Grill bowl for 60 consecutive days. The eatery also provided nutritional and exercise tips while ESQ Diagnostics tracked weight loss. Additionally, each competitor shared their healthy journey with social media posts, YouTube videos and a Facebook group to help each other throughout the contest.

Miller was able to stay focused on his weight loss journey by choosing new combinations for his bowl daily, so he never felt deprived or got bored. However, he notes in his “Why I Love Genghis Grill” blog post that his favorite ingredient is Fiesta Lime Chicken. Miller also says he’s learned a lot about food and nutrition through the contest. “The human body is an amazing machine that can be truly pushed when your mind is in the right place.”

Health Kwest was designed to reinforce all the healthy and delicious meal options available at Genghis Grill. After helping more than 100 khantestants lose a collective 1,900 pounds over 60 days, it’s safe to say the point has been made. The campaign also generated 1,233 Facebook posts, 724 Tweets, 796 Instagram photos, 1,057 blog posts and more than 600 YouTube videos.
