Marie Claire recently launched their online Diet Club and at the moment they are offering you a free 5 day trial. To put it bluntly it is an online version of WeightWatchers, but without the embarrassing meetings. Hurrah!
As I am interested in keeping fit and eating healthily i thought i would put it to the test. My aim is to lose 5lbs – not exactly a life changing amount i know!
The interface is very easy to use and self explanatory and the mini-tuition when you sign in for the first time is extremely helpful. (Even my mother could do use it – and that’s putting it to the test!)
My favourite features available are:
- Barcode QuickSearch – Type in the barcode of your item to add the calories to your diary
- My Food Reports – highlights your average alcohol intake, highest fat foods and your exercise expenditure.
- Food Swap – if you can’t resist your favourite chocolate treat, find a healthy, lower calorie alternative.
So far i haven’t found any negatives but i will keep you posted!
