Wouldn't it be nice to have a personal dietitian to monitor your progress and show you how each meal choice is helping or hurting your efforts to reach your goals? If you have a home computer, then your assistant has arrived. Diet Power is a resource that works with your home computer to guide you on your personal journey - giving you more knowledge than you've ever had before. And that can be the key to success.

Diet Power guarantees that you'll reach your target weight using their computerized diet program. It's simple to use. You'll start by entering your goal weight and date into the program's Goal Setter. You'll then maintain daily entries in the Food Log, recording everything that you consume. This data will transfer to the Calorie Bank, where just like your checking account, staying balanced means you'll reach your goal. The program will also give points for one thousand exercises.

Diet Power also includes a Nutrition Coach to help you learn the more about healthful foods you're eating, and Nutrient History, where you can keep tabs on all of the fat, carbs, proteins and essential vitamins and minerals that come with your meal choices.

The program is conveniently and safely stored on your home computer and you'll be able to access the online community as well as enjoy many other features like the recipe analyzer and nutrition advice and news.

PRO
  • Use Diet Power alongside a plan you may already be following
  • Supported by nutrition and fitness professionals
  • Very large database of nutrition facts
  • Very large database with calorie burn rates
CON
  • Must have a computer
DIET and NUTRITION

Diet Power lists 11,000 foods under 21,000 names, and the Food Dictionary will let you add an unlimited number of your own, by entering nutrition facts from labels.

EXERCISE

Diet Power awards extra calories for exercise, which you record by clicking the Exercise Log button. The program knows the burn rates of nearly 1,000 activities, including conventional aerobics (walking, running, bicycling, swimming), competitive sports (tennis, basketball, golf), martial arts (boxing, fencing, karate), exercise machines (stair climbers, exercycles), occupations (bricklaying, carpentry), house- and yard work (mowing, wood chopping, laundry), and more.

Every burn rate is automatically adjusted to your current body weight. A 150-pound runner, for example, won't burn as many calories as a 185-pound runner.

If exercise raises your metabolic rate, Diet Power will notice this and increase your calorie budget accordingly. Similarly, if your workouts slow your weight loss by increasing your muscle mass, the program will decrease your budget to keep your weight on track. (You may want to adjust your goal weight in that case, however. A lean and fit 170-pounder will look better, feel better, and be healthier than an out-of-shape 160-pounder of the same height.)

CONCLUSION

If you're willing to put in the effort that goes into a detailed documentation of your journey to a healthier lifestyle, Diet Power looks to be a powerful helper.

Man, that cd sounds expensive. But it is probably cheaper than a real trainer.
