DietPower Sports New "WaterMinder"

Popular weight-loss software now watches liquid intake

DANBURY, Conn. (April 25, 2002)—DietPower, Inc., makers of the leading weight-loss and nutrition software for personal computers, have released a new version that alerts users when they aren't drinking enough water.

"Liquids are crucial to weight loss and athletic performance," said DietPower founder and CEO Terry Dunkle, "yet only three in ten Americans get the standard eight glasses of water per day." His company's new software includes a WaterMinder™ that alerts users when liquid intake falls behind their calorie expenditures.

DietPower, invented in 1988 and marketed since 1992, is the only nutrition software that can guarantee reaching a goal weight on a target date. It does so by monitoring the user's metabolic rate (the number of calories required for weight maintenance) and adjusting daily calorie budgets accordingly.

The program has earned perfect scores from Shape magazine and ZDNet, and was declared "the ultimate in weight-loss and nutrition software" by Runner's World. It also helped Dean Workman, of Los Angeles, win the first Discovery Health Body Challenge. Other success stories are at www.dietpower.com/how_it_works/success_stories.php.

Besides the WaterMinder™, other new features in DietPower 3.0 include:

A free 15-day trial of the the latest version of DietPower is available on a CD-ROM or by downloading from www.dietpower.com, where users can also order a $49.99* "unlock code" that makes the program work permanently. For further information, company contacts are at www.dietpower.com/who_we_are/contact_us.php.

On June 12, 2008, this was lowered to $39.99.
