Online Health-Fitness Sites
Searching the Internet I found several user friendly health sites. The first one I found was Ediets. This program had three Diet/food Plans to choose from; Low Cholesterol, Meal delivery, and a Mediterranean diet. It had a diet community, live support, meals with shopping list, recipes club, Personal fitness trainer, and 3D video training. The requirements are; Once a month weigh in and once a month participation in Community board activities. There was a fee for this site, 17.96 every 28 days.
The Second Site I found was Free dieting. This site has tools; Calorie Counters, Food Calorie Guide, and Meal planner. It will give you a 1200 caloric meal menu which you can print out. One of the pluses on this site was, it had other site links. You could go to each site and check it out. I really liked that!
Now through the previous site I found SparkPeople. I was really impressed with this site. It is totally Free! You join, fill out a questionnaire(easy), create a sparkpage and your in. The site links you up with Spark teams, these team are very active.
Spark People has a Fitness tab. In the fitness section there are exercise you can do with a video, and there is a library of videos to choose from. Do not know how to start? No problem, based on your questions earlier a exercise plan is laid out for you. It is so easy to customize to your personal style.
The Nutrition section tab. What a God Send! The program is user friendly, there is a planed menu to fit your caloric needs. A menu is set up for you, however it can be changed to suit your desires. You can add your own recipes and there is a search section with a large archive to choose from. It is so easy to use that I look forward to logging my food and seeing the stats. The chore is not cumbersome.
There are many more tools in Spark People. I will post one per week as I learn more and more about the site. Please feel free to comment about these post. Tell me your feelings and your thoughts. What are you looking for? What are your likes and dislikes about Diet/Health Plans?
