The weight loss reviews and the weight loss plan rankings on this page were based on certain criteria.
The criteria included food, exercise, support, tools and ease of use.

Other things that were taken into consideration were longevity of the program, proven success and the overall weight plan package.

Their website structure such as ease of use, speed, search capabilities, etc. were taken into consideration.


Only the paid weight loss programs were rated. To see reviews on free online weight loss programs, click here.
Lastly, price was also a factor in the ratings.

Let's face it, if we can't afford it, then we can't try it, so price is a factor in these ratings.

Food Plan

I rated the food plan on 3 different factors. These factors include the food plan, variety of choices and ease of food plan.

Does it include all food groups?  Is it a well balanced food plan?  Does the food plan promote healthy eating for life?

Although people do lose weight on fad diets that restrict certain foods (such as a low-carb diet), studies show that it is harder to stay on track with these programs. 

Additionally, the success of keeping weight off on these fad diets is very low in comparison to a healthy weight loss meal plan.


Does the meal plan offer a variety of foods?  Does it provide for the occasional “fun foods”?  Does it provide a method for you to select your foods within their meal plan program?

It is much easier to stick to a plan when it can include some of the foods you already enjoy.  Obviously with flexible plans, you want to make sure that you focus on not only variety, but the healthiness of the weight loss eating plan.

Ease of Use

Is there a lot of counting calories or carbs?  Is there weighing of food involved or reading labels?

Although counting calories really is the key to a successful weight loss, when doing the weight loss reviews and ratings, I looked at how the meal plan made this counting easier for you.  

Does the plan provide for a quick way to determine the calories or carbs or fats?  Does it give you the tools needed to quickly track your food intake?


Each weight loss plan was rated on their inclusion of exercising. 

Does the plan provide an exercise plan?  Do they stress the importance of exercising for weight loss? 

Do they provide tools and information on how to perform the exercises and what are the right exercises to do?

Exercise is a key factor to any successful weight loss plan. 

The exercises do not have to be complicated or intense, but each plan should provide some focus on exercising and provide guidance to you on which exercises to do and how to perform them correctly.


As part of the weight loss reviews, support was one key item that was researched.

Support is a key factor to your weight loss goals. 

Losing weight can be a huge challenge, and the better your support system is the better you can meet and beat the challenge. 

Support is also a great motivator.  Finding people in your same situation is one of the best ways to stay motivated to losing weight.

Weight Loss Tools

Another key factor to meeting your goal is, knowing how well you are doing. 

So during the weight loss reviews, I looked at their tools to see what they had to offer.

Things that were considered were weight tracking tools, food database or recipes, exercise and weight loss tips, charts and/or progress reports.


Price was also part of the ratings of the weight loss reviews.  Let’s face it, if you can’t afford it, then what good does it do you. 

So price is a key factor in the ratings for these reviews.  Don’t worry; the weight loss plans reviewed on this site are all reasonably priced, for us in the real world, and not at a price range for only the rich and famous.


Lastly, I rated the website on how easy it was to use and find useful information. 

What “freebies” did the site provide and how well the website was laid out and how quick the response time was. 

Why did I include a rating on the website if this really has nothing to do with whether or not they have a good weight loss plan? 

Well, with today’s world everything is online, so now more than ever the website is an important tool to the overall product that companies offer. 

Also, if a website is hard to maneuver and find things, then you may be missing important information. 

Additionally if the website is slow, you may become frustrated and quick logging on to track your progress and get the helpful tips and tools you want to stay on track.  So, I felt it was important enough to include in the weight loss reviews and ratings.

Although not all plans on this site have a weight loss reviews rating, you may still want to check out these free online programs.
