Hey guys - looking for some general feedback here.

How interested are you in diet plans?

How likely would you be to sign up for a diet plan online using your credit card?

Any feedback here would be appreciated :D

Thanks!

interested ... sort of on Sep 24, 2007 @ 10:56 pm

I'd be interested in reading up on different diet plans. As I define my healthy (or not so healthy) lifestyle, I tend to pick and choose specific features from different diets. I do not think that I would literally buy into a marketed diet plan.

probably won't pay for it on Sep 25, 2007 @ 06:09 am

I've sort of tried out an online diet/exercise plan with "Body by Glamour". It did initially help put more discipline back into my diet and exercise routine. And I did become more aware of what foods to eat etc. But, I don't think I'd pay for something like that. The newness wears off after the first month and when life becomes busy, I'd just not have the time and energy to fill out the food or exercise diary. It actually required a lot of work to track a diet plan progress. Putting something like that online may be too convenient. For me, human interaction is important if I were to really stick to an exercise routine. So, I'd rather be paying to join different classes so I actually have to get out of the house, meet people, do something different every few months... instead of counting calories at my laptop.

I also signed up with Body By Glamour when my sister insisted we do it together. After the first month or so though, things got busy and I found it was just more of a hassle to constantly log on and keep track of everything all the time. In my experiences it doesn't matter what plan I decide to follow, I get lazy about them after a while and wind up right back where I started anyway. Knowing this about myself and my lack of drive to stick with something like this, I wouldn't pay for it.

What about one of those plans where it is all about the food i.e you sign up, pay for your food and it is delivered to your door (USA only)?

1 thing to add on Sep 25, 2007 @ 04:51 pm

I should clarify that the reason I am asking is because we do have to put a certain amount of advertising on ChickAdvisor (that pays the bills!) but we would rather "bombard" you with things that interest you. ;)

Diet plans..? on Sep 25, 2007 @ 10:12 pm

Ali,

I don't want to offend anyone, but I honestly have to admit to you that I have no interest in diet plans whatsoever. I think that they give people false perceptions about the proper way to lose weight.

Quite literally, it's all about balance. If we burn more calories than we consume the result is weight loss. Yay physics!!

In the same boat :) on Sep 25, 2007 @ 10:21 pm

Haha! Artist, I totally hear you.

From the forums I get the sense many of you are pretty healthy and would sooner exercise than sign up for a diet plan somewhere. That's why we decided to check with you guys on this one before putting something up that you wouldn't be into.

I really appreciate your honesty :) Thanks!
