'Tis the season to lose weight. Whether it's to drop holiday pounds or as a New Years Resolution. This year's dieters are getting help from a palm sized computer that will keep them on track long past January 1.
DietMate®, developed with grants from the National Institutes of Health, is an easy to use, hand held computer system that creates a diet and exercise program based on each users height, weight, age, sex, weight loss goals, and exercise preferences.
Not to be mistaken as a mere calorie counter, DietMate has received patent protection for its unique method of behavior modification. Which means that the tiny computer not only helps with short term weight loss, but changes long term habits necessary for permanent weight control.
"In addition to helping me lose 40 pounds, DietMate helps me lead a healthier life so its a way to get healthy and slender." Said Carol Allen of Bedford, New York, a devoted DietMate user.
Recent intervention by the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to pull popular prescription diet pills off the market, has inspired many opinions on dieting to change. The current trend is for a drug free, monitored means of weight loss based on healthy living, and away from fad diets.
PICS, Inc., the makers of DietMate, are experts in helping people improve their health without the risk of drugs. Their highly successful LifeSign® stop smoking computer has helped over a million users in their efforts to quit smoking. DietMate provides the health care community with the tools needed to combine breakthrough technology with a back to basics, drug free approach to weight loss.
"The thing that makes DietMate so successful is that it does more than just help someone drop a few quick pounds," says Al Behar, president of PICS, Inc, "It actually helps them to develop long term habits that will improve their health for life."
"Since I have almost achieved my weight loss goal, I use DietMate to help me maintain my weight without having to worry." Says Kay Seneker of Seymour, TN.
In clinical trials conducted with grants from the National Institutes of Health, DietMate has been proven effective in weight, cholesterol, and high blood pressure reduction.
Charleen Vernon of Medford, NJ says, "DietMate is easy! An American way of life! It allows me my Gyro on Thursdays and Sushi on Tuesdays. It's a weight management system, not a diet. It can go with you anywhere. I love it!"
