Diet2Go is a handy app to have with you if you have decided to lose weight or just want to follow a healthy eating lifestyle. The app gives you access to a large and continuously growing database of diet plans. When you first start with this app, you have to enter your target weight, your age, gender, height, current weight, and level of activity. The system will calculate how many calories you need to consume to achieve your goal by the target date.
The values can be entered using either the metric or the English system of measurement.
In this video, you can watch a thorough review and description of all the features of the “Diet2Go iPhone App“.
You then select a diet from the list. You can choose between more than 50 different diet plans. The 3-Day Low Calorie Diet, the 4-day Protein Diet, the Beverly Hills Diet, the Chicken Diet, the Easy Vegan Diet, the Low Fat Low Cal Diet, are only a small sample of the available plans you can choose from. The infamous Cabbage soup diet is there, too!
Each diet belongs to a category. In other words, the diet plans are sorted based on 6 types: By Blood type, Detox, Fad, Healthy, Low Carb, and Vegetarian.
Now suppose you choose the “After Holiday Cleanse” diet that belongs to the Detox Category. The app will lay out a 5-day detailed plan for you. The weight loss program will include Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, as well as two snacks.
What impressed me the most is that the software will tell you how much weight you will lose in each of the diet plans you choose. For instance, based on my profile settings (age, gender, weight, etc) I will lose 2.4lbs in 5 days if I follow the 5-day “After Holiday Cleance” plan. This is really motivating! You know in advance the result so you can decide whether this plan is for you or you should look for another deal.
Ok, once I selected the After Holiday Cleance diet, the app asks me to set my schedule. That means I have to enter the time of the day I will be eating each meal and snack. When I do this, I am all set and ready to start the diet. The app will send reminders to my iPhone calendar so that I will make sure I keep a steady diet schedule.
I just set the schedule for the diet plan I chose, and the system informs me of my next meal. Here it is. Breakfast at 7:00AM tomorrow. It consists of 1 large orange, 2 rice cakes, and 1 cup herb tea.
The choices this app makes available to the user, in terms of different diet plans, is impressive. This ever-growing list of diet programs may soon include commercial programs such as Atkins, South Beach Diet and Weight Watchers to name a few, and who knows, even Nutrisystem diet promo codes and Medifast shakes coupons.
Here is another thing I like: Along with each meal plan comes a useful diet tip. Today’s tip is:
“Instead of taking the elevator every day at work, use the stairs. Not only will you spend more calories, you will exercise and shape your legs”.
