Way back in 2012, we ran an article with a impressive list of online diet clubs. That article has proven to this day so very popular, hits in the tens of thousands, and still going strong. So, we decided to update it for 2015, and its no surprise that everything costs (sometimes just a little) more!
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!
|Name||How much does it cost?||What you get||What they Say|
|WeightWatchers||Sign up is free;£32.85 for the first 3 months membership, OR £12.95 for your first month thereafter £12.95 per month.||Expert Chat – 24/7 real-time support from trained expertsProPoints plan – lose weight while still eating the foods you loveDigital tools and mobile app A community of supportMembers only online shopSeamless activity tracking – connect your device to your Weight Watchers account||The ProPoints plan reflects the latest science that takes into account how different nutrients in foods are processed by the body and how satisfying they are and the impact this can have on your weight loss efforts. 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.|
