DIET and NUTRITION

Rather than outlining a set in stone plan for you to follow, the Diet Detective online program encourages you to eat real food, including your favorite brand names, and eat them in a healthy manner.

After completing a short personal profile that includes your eating habits, activity level, goal weight, age and height, you'll receive Five Real World Weight Loss Solutions that reflect your answers to the profile questions. From there, you will receive a meal plan with built-in calorie bargains in addition to online tools that are used to track your progress, food logs and journals and a weight tracker.

Overall, the Diet Detective online program supports making healthy food choices that revolve around choosing whole foods rather than overly processed ones, vegetables and fruits over refined starches and sugars and lean meats over fat-laden protein sources.

The plan also instructs you to ask yourself three basic questions before you eat anything in order to identify the difference between emotional and biological hunger.

EXERCISE

The Diet Detective's fitness program shows you to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine. As you progress through the program, you will learn firsthand how exercise makes you feel and how instrumental it is in achieving your goal weight.

As part of the program, you have access to the Activity Calculator, Calorie Calculator, printable exercises and daily tips. In addition, the Exercise Equivalent Finder shows you how long it will take for you to walk, run or perform yoga in order to burn off a cheeseburger or bucket of movie theater popcorn.
