DIET and NUTRITION

Thintopia.com is centered on bringing people together that want to lose weight through competitions. All of the competitions are set up by users of the site, so the diet components may vary, if any parameters are set up at all.

Most of the competitions simply give guidelines on when to weigh in and prizes or cash is awarded for those that lose the highest percentage of body weight.

There are currently no competitions that specifically outline what you can or cannot eat.

The goal of the site is to help people with losing weight. You are able to choose what type of eating plan works for you. There are no specific foods that are off limits or recommended because you are making your own food choices.

EXERCISE

Exercise is not required and most of the competitions that are set up don’t give a certain amount that you must do each day. The goal, no matter which competition you choose, is going to be the same – losing the highest percentage of body weight.

Because there are no restrictions placed on how you do this you can make the choice to exercise or not. Most diet plans you go on will recommend that you exercise as well, but the final decision is up to you. Typically those serious about losing weight and wanting to win a competition will want to implement some sort of exercise into their weight loss regimen.

CONCLUSION

If you are looking for an interactive online weight loss competition, Thintopia.com will do just that. The web site is free and you can create your own competition, or join one that’s already created.

But since there are no special features or even recommendations on what type of diet and exercise plan you should try while competing, you will need to formulate your own diet and exercise plan as the site simply serves as a community for those that want to lose weight with a competitive edge.
