Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Joanna Hall is something of a health and fitness guru--more than likely you've seen or heard her on television or radio. Joanna Hall's Step by Step Guide to Weight Loss CD-ROM is a weight management programme covering exercise and healthy eating, and provides plans that can be followed over periods of six, eight or 10 weeks.

You need to give the software quite a bit of information about yourself--a range of measurements (including height and weight), what you like to eat (do you include read meat, for example) and how (on the run, at home, at work). You also need to tell it what days you are able to exercise. Once this information entered you are provided with a menu comprising a two-week eating plan that you rotate throughout your programme. You also get two exercise regimes, one of which involves physical activity (including jogging, skipping, stair climbing, walking) and the other comprising resistance sessions (exercises to stretch and strengthen different parts of the body). You can pick and choose meals from the provided database to vary the food intake and change exercises to suit your requirements. To keep you focused each week you also get a task to focus on--week one's task is to sort out your water intake.

Joanna Hall's Step by Step Guide to Weight Loss is an all round programme which is flexible enough for you to tailor to your requirements, yet rigid enough to have the desired effect. The only irritation is the computerised voice of 'Active Annie' your on-board help system. Luckily you can turn her off. --Sandra Vogel

Manufacturer's Description

Joanna Hall's step-by-step guide to weight loss works by creating a personalised fat and weight loss plan tailored to your body and lifestyle.

  • Structured exercise plans including both cardiovascular and resistance training, depending on your weight loss targets.
  • Daily physical activity plan with postural exercises to improve mobility and posture
  • Projection chart for expected weight loss and change in body fat percentage
  • Section on commonly asked questions about exercise, nutrition and body fat

    1.0 out of 5 stars incredibly poor 11 Jun. 2003
    Verified Purchase
    To think that money is being charge for this is outrageous, I've seen better spreadsheets quite frankly. It looks as if it were designed for Win3.1, the progress charts are useless, you can't correct mistakes in a profile - you have to recreate it - it's so inflexible. What I'd like to see is a way of putting in what calories and fat you ate during the day, coupled with the ability to add in the exercise done and see your progress tracked neatly. Avoid this like the plague.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Only for the Commited 14 Feb. 2003
    This Pc ROM is realy only for someone who wants structure in their Diet plan or who has read Joanna's Books and needs to see how to put the Plan into practise.
    The Cd is easy to load and has easy to follow steps, there is an interactive character to help called 'Active Annie' which I frankly found to be annoying - she can be turned off.
    Once you have loaded up all your details - height and weight including measurements - a tape measure is a must! The plan then gives you menu plans to follow and an exercise plan too. These are easy to follow and have all recipes you need, you can also change any details for example if you do not like a particlur choice you can swap for something else very easily.
    I would say this is realy for the commited - If you want the structure and a way to monitor your progress this is for you. I found it annoying to have to log in all the time to print off menu plans etc and could not commit tho this type of stucture also - I am a bit old fashioned and prefer to use a notebook to wirte down the food I eat and to monitor my weight loss progress.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Weight Loss programme 25 Feb. 2003
    By A Customer
    Very disappointing unless you are from the States as many of the foods suggested in the diet sheets are not easily found here.
    The suggestion thatyou can follow your own weight loss plan is fair enough but the foods suggested are not designed for one who follows a simple British diet.
    Also, the exercises suggested for an overweight sixty-year old included a 45 minute run. More likely to do damage rather than good initially, I would have thought.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Only for the commited 14 Feb. 2003
    Joanna Hall's Weight Loss Guide on the PC is really only useful for those who are regular users of a computer - I think it would be almost perfect if your Pc is in the Kitchen. You register all your details once the Cd Rom is loaded and it is all very easy to use and follow. Once all you details are in - hint - have a tape measure handy - then it will provide you with a list of menus that suit the lifestlye you lead and an exercise plan to follow. This is perfect for people who need a structured approach to weight loss. I have read Joanna Hall's Books which are easy to follow as well, but the Cd Rom allows the dieter to see how the plan can be put into practise. If you regularly will access you computer and print off the plans and like a way to keep track of your progress then this is for you. I found that I could not commit to this time of programme - I do not access my Pc everyday and in an old fashioned way would rather write down my progress on a piece of paper or in a notebook.
