What You Should Know
Weight Loss Partners offers personal interaction between a dieting team and personal consultants. Teams consist of weekly phone calls and community interaction. The dieter must keep track of all food intake and exercise. These records are reviewed by the team consultant and the results discussed on the weekly calls. The idea of integrating online weight loss support with personal attention is a fantastic business model, but it is not one that proved worthwhile for Weight Loss Partners. The website shut down in February, 2011 and is no longer available for new or existing weight loss group members.
List of Ingredients
Personal consultant supporting group weight loss.
When it comes to losing weight, group weight loss is proven to be more effective than individual weight loss. Partner that group setting with input from a trainer professional and weight loss is inevitable, but maybe not profit worthy. The Weight Loss Partners company offered that personal interaction between team members and a weight loss guide. The company stopped business in 2011, which likely means there were too few new clients to keep the business running.
The trouble with online weight loss businesses like Weight Loss Partners is the fee schedule. The same support can be gained from Weight Watchers, in person and SparkPeople a free service. Dieters who want to pay for weight loss support are going to choose a plan that includes personal attention, not virtual personal attention. If the fee is a problem, there are free options. Weight Loss Partners fell somewhere in the middle and got lost.
The website offered the same features other websites offer for free, including food tracking, fitness tracking and community interaction. Teams are also available on free dieting websites, but dieters can pick a team based on personal desire and common goals.
Weight Loss Partners did include a heart rate monitor to help gauge workout level as part of the registration fee.
- Community or group weight loss tends to be more successful.
- Weight Loss Partners supports personal contact between guide and dieter.
- Heart rate monitor included with website fee.
- Free websites offer the same support as Weight Loss Partners.
- No in-person meetings.
- The business is no longer active.
- We found no testimonials supporting Weight Loss Partners.
The idea behind Weight Loss Partners was good, but the dieter often has the all or nothing mentality. If personal interaction or group meetings are desired, there are inexpensive options like Weight Watchers. If the dieter wants to track foods and fitness without a fee, they can choose one of many free websites. These two options leave Weight Loss Partners with no dieters on the doorstep.
