Overview of the Best Online Diet Plans

Diet Plans, Ediets, Fat Free Foods

In a society where obesity abounds, there is also a sea of diet plans. Which ones are the best? Which ones really work? How do I sift through all the rhetoric to find which diet is right for me?

I will be exploring three of the top diet plans available on the internet-Weight Watchers, eDiets, and Anne Collins Weight Loss Program.

Weight Watchers:

I will start with my personal favorite, Weight Watchers. Weight Watchers has been around for over 40 years and is one of the most reputable diets around.

Their online program can be done by itself or in addition to going to meetings. If you solely follow the online version of Weight Watchers, you can still find tons of support on their many forums. If you sign up to follow the online version that goes hand in hand with the meetings (called eTools), you get all the same benefits of the online version, but at a substantial discount.

Weight Watchers TurnAround offers two options to losing weight.
The most popular program is the FlexPoints plan. You choose what day of the week you want to weigh in. On that day, you are given an allotted amount of points to eat per day based on your current weight. You are also given weekly points for when you need a little extra. Also, you can earn more points by exercising.

The other option is the Core plan. You are given a list of foods you can eat and must stick to this list. This list focuses on primarily low-fat/fat-free foods, limiting meats to a certain portion of only the most lean cuts, and eating healthy carbohydrates. As with the Flex Points program, you are given a weekly balance of points to use on items not on the Core food list and you can earn extra points through exercise. There’s no counting points unless you eat something that is not on the Core list.

Weight Watchers can be expensive. The online only program is $46.90 for the first month and $16.95 for each additional month. eTools (for people who also attend meetings) will cost you $12.95 a month. This is in addition to the $12 you pay for each meeting.

eDiets costs $4.99 a week. However, they often run specials.

Anne Collins Weight Loss Program:
