Product Description

Product Description

Active Health with Carol Vorderman comes packed with a sleek, specially designed pedometer, called an Activity Meter, which monitors your activity levels throughout the day when placed in your bag or pocket. Carol provides you with a daily step target and at the end of each day you simply point the Activity Meter at the Nintendo DS, like a TV remote control, and with one click of the button your data will be sent to your DS by infrared signal. Additional activity can also be entered into the software so whether you go for a long walk, a swim or do some gardening, it will all count towards your daily activity goal. You can input your Wii Fit activity into Active Health to keep track of additional exercises completed on the Wii.

On the path to reaching your goal, you can earn incentive points by maintaining exercise levels and selecting healthy food options as part of your diet programme. As points are earned, additional features such as new background music and images become unlocked. Active Health with Carol Vorderman also offers a variety of fun mini-games to help motivate you to keep healthy such as the Walking Challenge which converts your steps into miles so you can attempt to walk the distance between Land’s End and John O’Groats! To help improve your knowledge of the calorie count of popular foods Calorie Count Up is a mini game you can play alone or against Carol. You have to choose items from a selection shown on screen and see if you can reach the target of 1,000 calories.

Active Health with Carol Vorderman is a simple and motivating way to get you on track to a healthier lifestyle. It’s easy to use, fits around your life and can help to bring the fun back into healthy living. Active Health with Carol Vorderman helps you work towards a balanced lifestyle by focusing on your exercise regime, diet and fitness goals with:

Regular Exercise - Pop the Activity Meter in your pocket, then beam walking data to your DS. All exercises, like swimming or playing on Wii Fit can be added, too.

Healthy Eating - Input your meals for nutritional information. Unlock new recipes, then add the ingredients to a shopping list.

Fitness Goals - Set step goals and calorie targets, then see if you can stick to them and reach your ideal fitness levels.

There were a few options available when I bought this, the other being Walk With Me! Do You Know Your Walking Routine? - Includes Two Activity Meters (Nintendo DS). They both have activity meters but where-as Walk With Me has a 'challenge the world' background to it, Active Health with Carol Vorderman is all about you.

The first job you'll need to do it log your weight with it. Then you can start to get the feel of what it is about. It isn't a game (not really) it is more a fitness/health coach that fits in your pocket.

Pick up the Activity Meter and place it in your pocket. Thats it. Leave it there. Really! You don't need to get it out and you'll soon forget it is there. Thats the beauty of this, it doesn't have to be clicked to your belt so everyone knows what you are doing. Discreet and small so doesn't get in the way.

How-ever many times a day you can upload the steps you've made direct to the Nintendo DS (wirelessly) and it will not only tell you how many steps, but also when in the day they are AND at what pace (normal or high). You can do this through-out the day or, like me, you can just do it once a day. According the booklet you can keep a couple of weeks info in there. This will all be logged and graphed by the DS and you can see your daily performance. You can also unlock a challenge of walking all the way from Lands End to John O'Groats - The Longest walk starts with the smallest step!

You can also unlock a step challenge which takes more details information of walks so you can time yourself and set personal challenges.

Finally, I have found something which actually encourages me to keep fit, and monitor my eating habits. Firstly I would not class this as a game. The Wii fit is a game compared to this. I love the step monitor, I just stick it in my pocket and away I go. Took me awhile to figure out that you can actually manually input what you eat, using the PDA function, this is nothing to do with the design structure of this software, but more of a case of I did not look at each function properly. Another great feature of this is the walking challenge. Annoyingly, I lost my old DS along with all the data and had to start again, but I am well on my way to reaching St Ives, but the ultimate goal is to reach John O Groats. The other feature I like about this is that it only has room for one profile, my partner is also hooked to this, and unless we had both bought it we would be constantly fighting over it.
I think this is the best out of similar software out there as this is based on English measurements. I have my fitnes coach, plus others, but they are too Americanised for me (no disrespect to America). Afterall we use stones and pounds, grams and millilitres, whereas on other software it all seems to be cup this and cup that.
The other good thing about Carol Vodermanns package is that she designs a meal plan for you, and although I am not using this yet, it gives me an alternative to what I usually eat. She tells you if you have had too much sugar etc, and also tells you if you are not eating enough and doing too much exercise.
It gives you a review at the end of each week and awards you a bronze, silver or gold medal depending on how well you have done.

This is the first review I have ever written but I feel compelled to do so!

I am not going to talk about the overall game as the above do so just fine.

I am a 25 yr old female and I have been getting steadily heavier since I was a teenager. I am proper lazy too which doesnt help with the fact that I LOVE food. I have tried the Wii fit, Weight watchers, Slimming world etc but I am too lazy to be bothered to do anything except watch Eastenders!!!

I bought this game 2 months ago and as other people have said my DS had been left in the drawer for months. IT IS BRILLIANT!!!!! All you have to do is wear the pedometer and input what you eat and thats it. I know it sounds bizarre as you dont have to do anything extra BUT the fact that you are AWARE of your steps and your calories means you dont eat as much! Before you stuff your face with a cake you think - oo - i only have so many calories left!

In the 2 months I have had it I have gone down 2 dress sizes and lost 8 pounds. Everyone has noticed my loss!

My mum has also bought it and she has been overweight for 18 yrs. She has now lost 10 pounds in 7 weeks and believe me this is amazing!!!

I have been telling everyone about this and if I could go on national tv and tell people I would cos it is so worth the cost!!!!!

Good luck everyone!

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTEY BRILLIANT GAME. MY DS HAS SAT IN A DRAWER FOR THE LAST 12 MONTHS SINCE I GOT FED UP WITH BRAIN TRAINING !!!
NOW I USE IT EVERY DAY, INPUTTING MY WALKING, FOOD AND WEIGHT.
I LIKE THE FACT THAT NEARLY EVERYTHING YOU DO GETS YOU REWARDS, WHICH UNLOCKS SURPRISES, ONE IS TO UNLOCK THE WALKING CHALLENGE FROM LAND'S END TO JOHN O'GROATS, SO EACH TIME YOU INPUT YOUR STEPS, YOU CAN ADD IT TO THE CHALLENGE TO SEE HOW FAR YOU ARE MOVING UP THE COUNTRY. IT REALLY ENCOURAGES YOU TO WALK MORE.
THE OTHER THING I REALLY LIKE, IS WHEN YOU INPUT YOUR FOODS IT TELLS YOU HOW MUCH FAT, SUGAR, AND SALT IT CONTAINS, THIS WAS A REAL EYE OPENER AS I USUALLY ONLY CONCENTRATE ON HOW MUCH FAT IS IN A PRODUCT, WHEN I INPUTTED A LOW FAT FRUIT YOGURT I WAS STAGGERED BY HOW MUCH SUGAR THE GAME SAID WAS IN IT, SO I CHECKED MY YOG TO FIND THAT IN A 125G POT THERE WAS 16.1 GRAMS OF SUGAR, HORRENDOUS,!!! SO FROM NOW ON I WILL BE LOOKING AT THE FOOD PRODUCTS I BUY A LOT CLOSER.
DOING THIS WILL HELP WITH MY WEIGHT LOSS WHICH CAROL ALSO HELPS YOU WITH,
WHEN YOU PUT IN YOUR WEIGHT, SHE TELLS YOU WHAT YOUR BMI IS AND WHAT IT SHOULD BE FOR YOUR HEIGHT, SHE THEN SETS YOU A STEP CHALLENGE, AND A DAILY CALORIE COUNT, WHICH I AM DOING AND SHE THEN CALCULATES THAT IF YOU DO THESE THINGS YOU COULD LOSE THIS AMOUNT OF WEIGHT BY A CERTAIN DATE.
AS I SAY A BRILLIANT GAME.
ONE LAST NOTE I WLL BE 60 IN FEB.
