How should I choose a diet website?

Rose Reisman
Nutrition & Dietetics
Follow these tips when choosing a diet website:
  • Always make sure the advice and programs are set by a registered dietitian.
  • Claims of weight loss shouldn't be more than 2 pounds per week. Any more than that and I would stay away from that company. It probably represents an unhealthy plan. More than 2 pounds per week is almost always due to water loss not fat. Daily intake should never be less than 1,200 calories.
  • An acceptable company will customize meal plans for dietary restrictions, food allergies and food preferences. Check out the meal plans to make sure you can live with the suggested meals.
  • Be wary if you have to make a long-term financial commitment. Many effective websites offer the option of weekly payments.
