With busy lifestyles, online diet clubs are very popular, rather than going along each week to be weighed in front of lots of other weight-loss hopefuls these clubs claim they can give you all the tools and inspiration you need to lose weight online. There are plenty out there to choose from, all offering a range of benefits and services at a range of prices.
We have taken a look at some of the most popular and extrapolated the pertinent information from the copious colourful wordy websites! So at a glance you can see how much it costs, what you get for your money and what they say about their service!

We assign a ProPoints value to every food and drink based on the amount of protein, carbohydrate, fat and fibre in the portion……Because it’s possible to calculate the ProPoints values in any food or drink, it means you can tailor the plan to fit in the foods you want to eat. With a ProPoints budget that ensures you create the all-important calorie deficit for weight loss, all you need to do is work out the ProPoints values in your food choices and stay within your budget. By doing this you will also be making healthier choices too.|
