How DietMate Works:
It's amazing how complete the program is. You wake up each day, weigh yourself, and with the press of a button, tell DietMate your current weight.
Then the computer alerts you when its time to eat breakfast. There are lots of delicious, balanced menus to choose from. Pick one and the computer tells you exactly what to eat to keep within your caloric range. It does the same thing for lunch and dinner. DietMate always tells exactly the calories and fat content of each meal.
DietMate reminds you to exercise on certain days. It starts you slowly and eases you into burning those extra calories. The computer supports you along the way with helpful messages and encouragement. And at the end of each day, DietMate gives you a summary of the day and a boost for tomorrow.
DietMate doesn't forget a thing. It tracks you program progress -- doing all the work of counting and figuring. It helps you to plan meals ahead of time or to select them as you go along. When it's time to go shopping, just ask the computer to create a shopping list for you.
It only takes about 10 minutes to get started. Simply answer a few questions about yourself, and DietMate creates an individualized program for you, based on your own likes and dislikes.
