If you've wandered over yet to the Good Things to Know division of the website, you've likely noticed the reference there to Lifesize Portions. This is a new diet product based on portion control, created by a couple of friends. Now, I'm sure that there are people who read that and see me yammering about a product that friends developed and roll their eyes and move on. Hey, me buckos, I always try to be honest with people and tries not to steers ya wrong. I have friends who have done lots of things pretty stupid, and I haven't tried to foist them on anyone. If you look closer in that section, you'll notice a recent rave article about Lifesize Portions that recently appeared in the New York Times.
And now comes this on Tuesday.
The popular website About.com has a Weight Loss Expert, Malia Frey, and she did a column on January 15 about new weight loss products on the market, "The Good, The Bad and They Ugly" And --
Like I said, I tries not to steers ya wrong. The only "Good" new product she singled out was Lifesize Portions.
The full article goes into a bit more detail, but you get the point.
The only oddity is that she says, "The product is not cheap (just over $92 for a complete program)." The thing is, though, if you bought just three diet books -- and I know people with shelves of them -- it would cost you as much. More to the point, when checking the Best Diet Tips website, they write that the average Jenny Craig dieter "pays $500 to $675 per month." That works out to an average of $7,200 a year. Every year. Now, yes, that includes the cost of food, and you'll have to also pay for food with Lifesize. (Unless you prefer to go on one of those starvation diets, not recommended...) But with Lifesize Portions, you aren't paying high prices for proprietary, individual, pre-packaged meals and (often) shipping. You just go to the grocery store and buy your regular groceries and make whatever you want with your own, favorite recipes. Food costs therefore are significantly less.
Really, truly, I tries not to steers ya wrong.
