BACKGROUND

SparkPeople.com is known for offering an online community for people to connect for free. Now SparkPeople is branching out to a paid platform called SparkPeople LIVE! through the technology company LiveMind. SparkPeople LIVE! is an online support group and motivational meeting service that allows you to attend classes from your computer. The cost of SparkPeople LIVE! is relatively low per month and you can currently get a third month free when you purchase two. You will also receive a one week free trial when you sign up for the service. SparkPeople LIVE! allows you to surround yourself with people who have similar interests and gives you access to group counseling sessions that you can attend from your home. The group meetings are similar to the weight loss meetings offered by other programs without the travel time or additional costs.

This program offers motivation from others that share your goals and can help you stay motivated. This program can be especially helpful to those that have struggled with reaching their goals in the past. SparkPeople is the largest online weight loss community with over 11 million members. SparkPeople helps people eat better and exercise regularly. This live component helps enhance your results and will allow you more accountability.

DIET and NUTRITION

SparkPeople LIVE! is an online support group and motivational meeting tool. This service is different from what is typically available through SparkPeople. There is the added benefit of live interaction through video. You can gain support from other group members without ever leaving your house. This program focuses on the motivational meetings and does not cover a specific diet. There may be diet topics covered during some weeks of the meetings, but no particular foods are called out. For particular menu plans and meal ideas, SparkPeople.com offers that information.

EXERCISE

SparkPeople LIVE! does not outline a particular exercise routine. During your group meetings, you will be able to talk with other members and the topic of exercise may be discussed. There are just no specific workout plans outlined within the SparkPeople LIVE! platform. For a specific workout plan or exercise guide, SparkPeople.com is full of resources.

CONCLUSION

SparkPeople LIVE! offers you a great way to gain support from others that want to reach their weight loss goals in the privacy of your own home. You can attend a motivational meeting and online support group by simply turning on your computer and logging in for a class. Many weight programs offer meetings similar to this, but all of them require going to a physical meeting place and paying weekly fees. With SparkPeople LIVE! you pay monthly and the price is very affordable.
