A great way to lose weight without punishing yourself
Member Name: blazeybug
After trying the Cambridge Diet, Atkins, Lighterlife, Slimming World and Weight Watchers to no avail I stumbled across WeightLossResources.co.uk
I skeptically signed up for the 24 hour free trial (no credit card details required).
Once I logged in I was asked some questions about my weight and height, how active I was and how much weight I wanted to lose each week (you have the option of choosing between .5lb to 2lb per week), and your target weight. After inputting this information you are then given your own little graph which shows where you are with your current weight and then shows you your target. Everytime you have lost you simply input your new weight and it updates your graph. It's really positive to see it it decrease. It also keeps a check on your BMI and lets you know what your new BMI is every time you put in your new weight.
It will allow you a certain amount of calories (depending on your height, weight and rate of weight loss) per day. You then input everything you eat into their extensive database and it puts the calories in for you... so for instance if you eat Hovis medium cut white bread then that is what you type into the database and the amount of slices you have eaten and it will give you the amount of calories you have consumed by eating that bread.
If for any reason the food you have eaten is not in the database then you can add it yourself by inputting the information from the packet into the database.
You can also keep track of your exercise too, and for any exercise you do, you earn extra calories to eat. The amount of calories you earn for exercise again depends on your weight, height and rate of loss. For instance, I would earn 270 cals for 30 mins of cross training.
It's great for if you are going out for a drink at the end of the week as you can earn your calories in advance and not feel guilty for "binging".
It works out how much protein, fat, carb etc your food has so you can really keep track on what you are eating.
The other great thing about Weightlossresources is the forums/boards. They have hundreds of other members on there to provide motivation and support for when you are having an off day etc and it's a really great atmosphere. The boards are usually busy from 7.30am until about midnight. I have made friends on there and even gone to some of their birthday parties!
They also have a Helpteam which are available from 8-8 (from memory) and also able to answer any queries you may have. The longest I have ever waited for a response from the Helpteam is about 1 hour.
They even have things like Mcdonalds and Domino's Pizza in their database so if you want a treat you can have it and still keep track of your diet. It tends to go by the theory of everything in moderation, which is superb and stops you feeling like you are actually ON a diet.
I have never managed to lose weight on any other diet but on Weightlossresources.co.uk I have lost two stone in less than 3 months without punishing myself and made lots of friends.
It works out quite cheap too at £9.99 per month (if you think some slimming clubs charge £5 per week so you are actually saving money)
Log on and have a look!!!
