When you’re embarking on a healthy lifestyle journey, or to put it another way, trying to lose weight and get healthier and fitter. We tend to go down the route that we think that will suit us best, whatever that may be.
We probably know two things. We have got to change the way we eat, and we have got to burn calories up through exercise and a calorie deficit each day.
These are all simple things right? Well yes, in theory, they are, however, some of us may need some moral support and some way of tracking what we do like our exercise and how much we do and the amount of food we eat and what we eat.
I mean, if we want to we can do these things ourselves. Quite simply, by using pen and paper, and I dare say that probably will work very well for some people, but are we talking about. The majority here, some of us may want something more, somebody to give as moral support when we need it.
And as well as that access to data which revolves around food as well as what to eat and ways of tracking our progress. So we can see how well we are doing overtime. This is something that a lot of sites do offer. However, there is only one downside, they can be a bit expensive.
And if they are free, you might not necessarily get everything that you need. This isn’t the case with weightloss resources.co.uk I would say for the price that you pay and what you get is very good value for money. They have a forum area, which is divided into various topics. So people can chat to each other within a community environment.
When you first join up you put your details in and the target that you want to achieve as regards to your weight-loss goals, etc. When you log into the back end. There are seven tabs these are home, goals and results, exercise, members forum, Christmas challenge, and shopping. I should imagine the Christmas challenge is there because we are getting near to Christmas now even though it might seem far away still.
In the home tab, there are several resources, as you go from left to right. These are weight loss help, fitness and exercise and success stories. And on the right-hand side is where you can see the latest activity on the forums. It is very well laid out, and user-friendly.
On the goals and results tab, you can see a graph of your results and to the right of this. There is a summary of your statistics, which is your BMIyour start weight. Your target weight, and the amount of calories you need to be consuming daily this is worked out from your BMR (basic metabolic rate)
Moving along to the food’s tab this is where you can browse recipes that other people have uploaded, you can add your own to the database, which is quite handy, and add recipes to your favourites so you don’t have to keep searching for them. There is also a Journal facility. So you can add your thoughts about what you did and what you ate, which is handy. Studies have shown that journaling can be therapeutic for some people. Next we have the exercise tab.
This is where you keep an ongoing record of the exercises that you do each day. It will work out the calories roughly from the time that you have put in I dare say this is a rough estimate. regards burning calories, because it varies from person to person, depending upon how much, weigh.
Next is the member’s forum. This is quite self-explanatory in itself, and there are several topics of conversation that you can join in. Depending upon what it is you want to chat about.
And lastly is the shopping, this is in case people want to buy fitness equipment, etc., In summary, then, weight loss resources is a well-thought-out site and would be of benefit to anybody who is wanting to change to a healthy lifestyle. And who wants support, and everything else they need, all rolled into one.
They have four different membership plans, which are.
Plan one, which is a one-month membership. This would be ideal for people who just want to try the service and see if they like it or not this is £9.95 pence.
Plan two is a three-month membership, which works out at £ 26.85.
Plan three is six months, this works out at £47.70.
And plan four is 12 months, this works out at £83.40.
So as you can see there are plenty of options to suit all people. And all needs, if you want to get a feel for what is like. There is a one-day trial. So you can have a poke around and look at it yourself. To see if it is suitable for your own needs. I personally think, if you do decide to sign up for it. You won’t be disappointed, because in comparison. There are far more expensive ones available. Here is the address in case your interested weightlossresources.co.uk
What do you think to, being part of a community as far as moral support is concerned? Is it something that you think that you should be doing and have you found that it works for you. Rather than trying to achieve things on your own. It would be interesting to get feedback and other people’s input please leave your thoughts and opinions in the relevant section below.
