For the best weight loss results while following the Classic Checks plan, you need to make sure you stay within your Daily Checks Allowance and our online Daily Checker makes that easy!
Your Daily Checker counts how many Checks are in the foods you've eaten and tells you how much of your daily allowance you have left to spend.
It's very simple to use. Picture Search makes it faster and easier to find the exact product you ate, and we're constantly adding new foods to our food database, so you're sure to find what you're looking for. Or you can simply choose a meal from the Plan Meals section and add a serving to your Daily Checker.
You can glance at My Daily Totals to see how you are doing on your daily Checks and fat intake. While it's not essential to count fat grams to lose weight, if you want to know you're not having too much fat over a day, you should aim to keep the number of fat grams below your total number of Checks. If you go over, a little alert pops up to let you know.
Your Daily Checks Allowance can be spent on meals and other foods - it's up to you what you choose! But in addition to losing weight, we know you want to stay healthy and feel good.
Some foods are so packed with goodness that you should eat them every day to make sure you don't miss out on essential nutrients. We call these foods Every Day Bonus (EDB) foods - and the bonus is that they do not have to come out of your Daily Checks Allowance.
Your Daily Checker includes nutrient monitors; one for calcium foods, one for fruit and one for vegetables. The monitors light up automatically when you have reached your daily Target for each and your Checker knows not to count any Checks for these foods.
Getting more active can help you lose weight, and keep it off - and help improve your health. If you really want to make a difference to the way you look and feel, try to increase your activity levels while you're following the plan.
In addition to your Daily Checker for food, on the same page you also get an Exercise Diary. Your target is to earn 20 Checks for the energy you have used exercising to add to your weekly Flexichecks allowance. Try to add exercise every day and don't stop at 20. It's important to do something you enjoy - and the Exercise Diary contains hundreds of different activities, so you can look up what you did and record it or be inspired to try something new.
If you aren't already active, start by doing a little exercise, more and more often, and you'll soon see the benefits. Keeping a record is really motivating as you can see your progress.
If it's a long time since you have done anything active, or if you have a medical condition, check with your doctor before starting any exercise programme.
