I've just signed up to and am finding it really helpful. It's not free - $9.00 a month - but that's quite a lot cheaper than weekly WW or SW sessions.

Basically you enter everything you eat and it does all the calculations for you - calories, carbs, protein, fat, vitamins, sodium etc. - and shows you if your diet is healthy as well as what you need to do to lose. It's a bit American but you can always enter your own data from the labels of your favourite foods and add them toyour own 'fridge'.

A friend recommended it who has lost 3 stone on it since January (a serious yo-yo dieter - says its the best she's ever done). I'd say it was for someone who knows what they should be eating but has gone a bit haywire on portion size, snacking etc - me in other words! It does recommend low target weights (8.5 stone for me - not since I was about 10!)but you can put in your own target. The aim is 1lb a week which is supposed to be best for long term weight loss.

The long term aim is to reeducate your eating habits so that you always eat healthily. I like it because it's immediate and computer based - go along guiltily at work and add that coffee and bun to find it wasn't so bad after all ...
