Do you think you need to pay for expensive books or even the advice of a professional to get good advice on a healthy lifestyle? Then think again. There are literally thousands of online tools and websites that can help you lead a healthy lifestyle. Best of all, they’re free! It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for basic tips or information on a specific diet plan. There are tools and information for every lifestyle. This week, let’s look at a few of my favorite sites.
If you’d like to try the Weight Watchers diet, but don’t have the money to invest in their program, you’re in luck. Dotti’s Weight Loss Zone, not only offers great advice, but you’ll also find the Points value for thousands of different foods, including restaurant items. This site is a must for Weight Watcher wannabes and those members looking for a bit more advice.
For those looking for an easy way to track nutrition and personal fitness, Calorie Connect is a wonderful site. When you sign up, you’ll be asked to answer a few questions about yourself, such as weight and height. You will then be given recommended daily nutritional and exercise guidelines. Thanks to the online journal, you’ll be able to quickly add the foods you’ve eaten and exercise you’ve done each day. Staying healthy doesn’t get any easier than this.
One more site I use on a daily basis is The Daily Plate. This site allows you to quickly look up the nutritional value of thousands of different foods. Whether you want to know how many calories your favorite ice cream has or how much fiber is in certain fruits, you can quickly find the information. The site even makes suggestions for healthier alternatives.
You don’t have to empty your wallet just to get healthy advice. In all honesty, there is simply no reason to spend money on those expensive books that quickly go out of date. If you’re looking for convenience, which you can take on the go, there are even free websites that offer mobile access.
