eDiets: Review

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

ediets

eDiets is one of the largest online weight loss programs.

Founded in 1996, they now boast over 1.3 million members. They have consistently won awards and recommendations from such prestigious publications as Time magazine, and Forbes Best of the Web.

eDiets was once a subscription-based service, where the user payed quarterly for a number of services; customized diet and meal plans, shopping list, recipes, email assistance, and access to online tools and calculators.

However, after a failed attempt at diet delivery, eDiets has just a few options.

Program Costs

eDiets varies in price depending on which level of service chosen.

The membership only plans start at $18.95/month, but are cheaper if 3 months are paid for at once.

Successful Weight Loss?

eDiets has built an enormous brand based on successful weight loss. There are many success stories online and here is one from Brooke who lost 88lbs using their diet food delivery plan.

I started counting calories as a kid packing my lunch. I finally had to ask myself, “Am I always going to be the overweight girl?”

I tried many diets that didn’t work. No mattter what I tried, the weight always came back. (I event tried a whacky Pineapple Diet!) Then I found eDiets. When I first got the food, and it was so great, I knew it was a turning point for me.

I love how simple eDiets has been. It’s so easy! With eDiets there’s no counting points or tracking—no measuring anything. I didn’t have to think about it. No cooking, no embarrassing weigh-ins. You just eat the food and lose weight! It’s fool proof!

I am so proud of myself. I didn’t realize just how unhappy I was until I started losing weight. eDiets really changed my life.

They do advertise extensively, and have a huge opt-in newsletter that they make heavy use of.

However, eDiets has recently been acquired by AsSeenOnTV, so it will be interesting to see if they still remain as an effective way for people to lose weight.
