Why SP is so awesome!
Wednesday, August 11, 2010
I opened up the yahoo homepage today and I see this:
WEIGHTLOSS WEBSITES THAT WORK!
It only lists a small handful, but out of the 5, Spark is the only one that is free! And we all know it's the best anyway!
Here's an exerpt:
SparkPeople (free). It's supported by ads that run the gamut from hotels to granola bars, but get-slim-quick gimmicks are blessedly absent. The focus is on meeting simple goals: eat less, exercise more. March advises her clients to take advantage of the site's nutritional planning tools. Users can create meal plans based on calories and dietary restrictions, plan meals up to a week in advance, and save favorite meals to a daily log. Members exchange advice through forums, blogs, and message boards. Bonus: The more time you spend on the site, the more SparkPoints you earn towards prizes like T-shirts, water bottles, and exercise DVDs.
Go check it out and see!!
