(Note: This calculator is based on DietPower's old price, $27.95. Actually, the program is now free.)
Losing weight not only makes you healthier, but saves you money because a slimmer body requires fewer calories. To calculate these savings and learn how quickly they'll pay for your DietPower, use the tool below.
Choose the number of calories per day that you plan to burn in exercise beyond your current level. Adding a very fast (4 mph) walk will burn about 330 calories per hour if you weigh 150 pounds, 450 if you weigh 200, or 560 if you weigh 250. (To track calories burned in more than 1000 other activities, download a free copy of DietPower's Personal Weight and Nutrition Coach™.)
Choose the level that describes your current spending. The calculator assumes you'll continue spending at that level during your diet while eating less food. "Thrifty" = lowest spending for a balanced diet. "Low" = mostly store-brand products, few indulgences. "Moderate" = average middle-income consumer. "Liberal" = frequent indulgences.
