I feel that this is the safest, most creative long term diet product on the market. It was a constant and confidential companion for me. I thank you for this product.

    Carol Allen - Bedford, New York
  • Easy! An American way of life! It allows me my gyro on Thursdays and sushi on Tuesdays. This is a weight management program, not a diet. It can go with you. I love it!

DietMate FAQs

  • How DietMate works?
    It's amazing how complete the program is. You input your height, weight, age and sex and let DietMate come up with a program for you.
    There are hundreds of delicious balanced menus from which to choose. Pick one and the computer tells you exactly the quantities to eat to keep within your caloric range while maintaining nutritional balance.
    You can modify the menus if you want and save them to suit your personal taste. DietMate automatically keeps track of the calories, fat grams, percentage of fat, cholesterol and sodium content of each meal.
    DietMate designs a personalized exercise program for you and helps you stick to it by reminding you when to exercise. It starts you slowly and eases you into burning those extra calories. It even tells you how many calories you have burned from each exercise session.
    The computer supports you all along the way with messages and encouragement. At the end of every day, DietMate gives you a summary of the day and a boost for tomorrow.
    DietMate doesn't forget a thing. It tracks your progress, doing all the work of counting and figuring. It helps you to plan meals ahead or select them as you go along. When it's time to go shopping, just ask the computer to create a shopping list for you.
    DietMate and You
    The DietMate program is personalized, based on your own likes and dislikes. You create your personal program by telling the computer a few things about yourself, such as your weight goals, cholesterol levels, blood pressure and your eating and exercise preferences.
    Answering these few questions takes about 5 minutes, and that's all you need to do to get started.
  • Eating In and Dining Out
    Eating In
    DietMate offers hundreds of tempting menus for eating at home. The menus are designed to fit your lifestyle: Quick and Easy, From the Cookbook, and Frozen Foods.
    Quick and Easy
    Nutritious, interesting, and varied, these meals can be fixed fast, anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. They range from kebabs on the grill to a quick soup and sandwich. Quick and Easy meals meet the needs of people who want balanced, healthy meals in a hurry.
    From the Cookbook
    Designed by a chef to give you a selection of special meals, for yourself, for guests, or when you feel like you need something with extra pizzazz. These meals can be prepared in less than an hour, some in less than 15 minutes. The recipes are found in The DietMate Gourmet cookbook.
    Frozen Food Menus
    Because so many people rely at times on frozen foods, DietMate includes a selection of frozen meals. Only frozen entrees that meet DietMate's nutritional guidelines for fat, sodium, cholesterol, calories, and taste are included.
    Dining Out
    DietMate offers appetizing menus from a variety of restaurants:
    • American
    • Mexican

    • French
    • Chinese
    • Seafood

    • Greek
    • Fast Food

    These restaurant cuisines reflect popular choices that are lower in fat and that are based on surveys conducted by the National Restaurant Association.
    The restaurant menus are more than just salads. You can expect an array of choices that are as balanced and varied as the home menus.
    Whether eating at home or dining out, the program also gives you the option to substitute foods in a meal.
    You don't need to prepare two meals. . . one for yourself and one for the rest of the family. Because the meals are delicious and nutritionally balanced, your family can eat the foods that you eat.
