Food and Exercise -- Sparkpeople
My friend Judy recently introduced me to the SparkPeople website, an online health and wellness tool that helps monitor your eating and exercise habits. I have already had experience with websites such as Fitday, but I find that the Sparkpeople website is more intuitive and their interface is a lot more user-friendly. For someone who is trying to focus on their health and who doesn’t have time or money to join an organization such as Weight Watchers, Sparkpeople is a great alternative.
Like other healthy eating organizations, Sparkpeople has the basic tenets of a good program: up-to-date information and tools, a system for personal accountability, and a community section where you can get support from like-minded people all over the world. Personally, I don’t use the community section, but I do use the food and exercise section extensively and I find it helpful to monitor my food intake to make sure I am getting the right kind of food, and the right amount of it.
