Just in Time for New Year's

"Eating Coach" Comes to Your Computer

DANBURY, Conn.—DietPower, Inc., has launched an “eating coach” for the personal computer that helps dieters control their weight and nutrition without giving up favorite foods. Unlike earlier weight-loss tools, the new program gives personalized advice “on the fly” as users log their meals.

“DietPower 4.4 is the only software we know that shows which of your favorites are best to eat right now,” says CEO Terry Dunkle. “It even pinpoints the food you’d be smartest to have ‘seconds’ in.”

The new program reveals your intake of 33 nutrients as you record meals. Because it fine-tunes its recommendations as it “learns” your metabolism, it’s the only program on the market whose makers guarantee reaching your goal weight on your target date if you stick to your calorie budget. It also recommends foods you like that will improve your odds against heart disease, diabetes, and other killers.

The “eating coach” and “smart seconds” functions are among 23 new features in the latest version of a program that began in 1988 when Dunkle was a Reader’s Digest editor looking for a quicker way to count calories. Besides inventing DietPower, he used his editorial experience to make it easy to learn. The $49.99* program also:

DietPower’s scientific advisors include Ann Coulston, past president of the American Dietetic Association; Robert Epstein, founder of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies; and Barry Franklin, former president of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Version 4.4 requires Windows 2000, ME, XP, or Vista; 256 megabytes of memory; and one gigabyte of disk space. It works by itself or with Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, American Heart Association, or any other diet plan. The program comes with a one-year no-hassle money-back guarantee, animated tutorials, 500 pages of help covering 100 nutrition-related diseases, and free email and phone support.

Anyone can get a free no-strings 15-day trial of DietPower on a CD-ROM or by downloading from www.dietpower.com. More information is available there or by phoning 800-852-8446.

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