eDiets offers a variety of diet options, including meal delivery for an extra fee, as well as online tools and support, such as recipes, shopping lists, community forums, and customized fitness plans. Users report good results.
eDiets is more than just one diet plan -- it's more than 20 diets that can be customized to meet your exact needs. The company offers both a weight-loss program online and a prepared meal plan (starting at $148/seven days or $118/five days) that delivers diet food to your door. According to eDiets reviews, it's the online weight loss support program that draws the accolades. A dieter who commented on Viewpoints credited the online help from a mentor who urged "baby steps" for a loss of 30 pounds, and several consumers who posted eDiets reviews on Diet Blog experiencing significant weight loss with eDiets and learning to curb binge eating and impulse buying; moreover, they add, the recipes and menu plans eliminate guesswork. Top Ten Reviews, which awarded eDiets' online version its Gold rating, notes that the diet plan has been endorsed by the American Dietetic Association as a well-rounded approach to weight loss that's suitable for anyone. Many eDiets adherents praise the range and accessibility of the online educational and motivational supports, as well as the ability to customize the diet.
The diet food delivery service, however, elicits groans in many eDiets reviews. In numerous posts on Epinions, consumers gripe about terrible food (bland, tough, off odor or color), improper labels on the packages, orders that arrive with many substitutions, and shipments that are delayed, arrive damaged, or well ahead of the appointed time. eDiets reviews written by dissatisfied consumers also complain about difficulty canceling the service or getting credit for problem shipments.
All eDiets online members and meal delivery clients have the opportunity to consult with the company's nutritionists to find a suitable program, be it a diabetes diet plan, a heart healthy diet plan, a wheat free diet plan, and so on. An eDiet is tailored to each individual using a body mass index (BMI) formula to determine the target weight, and users can sign up for plans designed to lose weight or maintain it. All plans focus on the recommended weight loss of one to two pounds a week. Support is available in the form of a weekly online check-in when you enter your weight and get a weekly meal plan in return. You can gauge how you're doing on the site's diet progress and fitness progress sections. Aside from the nutritionists, members have access to message boards, online community groups, and an assigned mentor, as well as a customized exercise program.
Dieters seem satisfied with the degree of online support and the guidance eDiets provides in the way of recipes, meal plans, and fitness routines. We're persuaded by the versatility in diet plan choices and the positive eDiets reviews for the online weight loss support program but are skeptical about the value of the meal delivery option given the scope of negative reviews.
