Fighting the Battle of the Bulge Review with images

AdvantagesEnter all your food and exercise and you will lose weight

DisadvantagesCosts money, times you out

"...few weight loss websites. Weightlossresources.co.uk (known hereafter as WLR) caught my eye - partly because it came up first in my Google search, but also because of its ease of use and functionality. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Initial views and sign up ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When you first visit http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/, you are confronted with a welcome page with two main links - the 'enter' button and a link to ..."

Big is not always best

AdvantagesIt works if you follow the guidelines

DisadvantagesOccasional server problems

"I have had problems controlling my weight all of my adult life, and must have tried every sort of diet there is. My battle of the bulge is not helped by my career choice – I am a chef. I do have a BSc degree in Food and Consumer studies, and studied nutrition as part of this so I can’t plead ignorance as an excuse for being overweight. It was sheer apathy and laziness. ~~ My dieting history ~~ I don’t want to appear too self-absorbed ..." Read review

Not a fad, not a punishment...an excellent way to lose weight!

AdvantagesThe progress chart, the personal and realistic goal setting, forum, affordable, the whole thing!

DisadvantagesNone!!

"Having already done at least 5 different diets, I have always thought that the best way to lose weight is really the scientific way: reduce your calorie intake, increase your exercise. I've lost weight counting calories, but then put it on because I've never known how to maintain my weight after losing it. Now I believe I have the answer to all of my problems - www.weightlossresources.co.uk I came up across the website whilst searching for 'calories ..." Read review

WARNING I lost another 21 pounds unexpectedly...

AdvantagesInformative, accessible, low cost

DisadvantagesYOUR'E the one who has to diet!!

"***************************************************** UPDATE 22/8/02 - everything I said below about the usefulness of this site still stands, BUT when you unsubscribe remember to tell your bank to stop the payment - I didn't, trusting to them to stop collecting it. Only 7 pounds a month so it didn't leap out (amongst the hundred other items on my Visa statement over the summer pretty small fry LOL), but it all adds up. I'm sure this is sloppy admin ..."

WLR: Changing Lifestyle, Not Just Weight

AdvantagesEasy to use, changes the way you think about food

DisadvantagesTechnical problems with website, judgemental people on forums

"Weight Loss Resources I joined Weight Loss Resources (WLR) about two years ago after putting on a stone through comfort eating. I tried the 3 day free trial but knew that I would need the full subscription to get my eating under control so signed up for 3 months. Along with access to all areas of the internet I also received a booklet, and several small notebooks to use as food diaries, although I never used them as I'm on the internet more ..." Read review

Good if you stick to it

AdvantagesFun, good support, low price

DisadvantagesMight be a bit fastidious

"In the past, everytime I wanted to loose weight I was just being careful about what I ate for a few weeks, and oops the pounds had gone. However this time (maybe because I am getting older) this “technique” didn’t work so I decided to be more organised about it. I am not one for exercising (although I know I should) and neither one to go to slimming classes. I came across this website through some friends who joined before and lost a fair bit of weight ..."

A LITTLE SUPPORT ON THE NET

AdvantagesSupport if required to help with weightloss.

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of

"If you are or have ever been in the position that I am in needing to lose weight and having tried most things then you might be interested in this site, quite affordable at only £7 a month it gives you both food and exercise diaries and a goal weight and all the information that you already should know but forget from day to day. To start with they give you a 3 day free trial period just to try out the service to see if it suits you, so thats what ..." Read review

Here we go again......

AdvantagesNo food is off limits, massive food lists

Disadvantageswebsite could be better

"I stumbled upon weightlossresources about 18 months ago whilst browsing the internet for low cal recipes and looking for some inspiration to kick start my weightloss plan. I registered for the three day free trial and what suprised me most is that it was a FREE trial you do not need to give your card numbers advance like some so called free trials! After the three days it is not your responsibility to cancel so you need not worry about losing any ..." Read review

After years of being fat I'm now losing it!!!

AdvantagesToo many to list

Disadvantagesvery few - occacional slow server but thats all

"Much has already been written about weight loss resources in previous reviews so I won't bore you with too much information and details. Over the years I have tried various slimming clubs in the UK and overseas -I'm a hotelier and trying to get to regular meetings is difficult and eventually we all lose interest - especially with the condescending matriachs that I have found at some. This is where Weight Loss Resources comes in. The most important ..." Read review

What have you eaten today?

AdvantagesA fabulous dieting resource

DisadvantagesNo information for sugar intake

"Weightlossresources.co.uk is a searchable database of over 25,000 foods which can be used to record your calorie, protein, carbohydrate and fat intakes if you are dieting or if you are just interested. The number of fruit and vegetable portions you have consumed is also calculated which is a big plus. I have used the site many times and it comes with my complete recommendation. It is easy to signup and will only take a few minutes of your time. Once ..." Read review

weightlossresources - is what it says on the tin....

AdvantagesIf you follow the rules you will lose weight

Disadvantagesyou will become addicted to the forums and may become a food bore!!!!!!

"I basically want to say that it is worth the free trial - which is now 24 hours as opposed to 3 days - but you can get a good idea of whether it is something that is going to help you or not. The technical difficulties have been dealt with and there have been no time outs etc for at least 6 months. All I would say is - if you follow the rules (ie stick to the calories you have been given ) you will lose weight !!! I have been a member for ..." Read review

Weightlossresources - not worth the money

AdvantagesNicely laid out website

DisadvantagesVery time consuming, No refunds.

"My husband and I both tried using WLR. We found it very time consuming to use and both stopped using after a couple of months. Neither of us lost any significant weight and found it no more useful than simply writing down all food consumed. I would say that this is not worth spending your money on. To be fair my view is biassed because a year later they took out another two direct debits which they refuse to refund. I know they are in the ..." Read review

its easier than you think !!!

Advantageseat what you like when you like

Disadvantagesnone

"In this day and age, there are thousands of diet plans to follow, some work, some dont. Im sure that we have all tried to diet, and most of us have failed miserably ! So why do it to ourselves ? because we all crave perfection, and very few of us will achieve it. My diet plan worked wonderfully, and in 12 months I have lost 2 stone. How I hear you ask................ well, I didnt cut anything out of my diet. If I like it I eat it !, but I now ..." Read review
