What is FitDay?
FitDay is a company that provides weight loss trackers and tools and is available for free online, or by purchasing software.
There is a reasonable amount of information that can be viewed on the FitDay introductory website although most of it requires registration.
They do provide a good testimonials section which features before and after pictures of satisfied customers and, unlike some websites, the photos look very genuine and the amount of weight loss reported not extreme.
The site also shows a number of media news and television show logos that have featured FitDay, but unfortunately, no further information or video clips are shown.
There are some features that are useful and accessible without registration including a ‘calories burned’ calculator (featuring day to day activities such as yard work and housework) and information on the importance of receiving all the nutritional daily amounts through the diet.
FitDay seems to have a generally good reputation among independent consumers and is one of the more popular online tracking sites. However, some consumers have reported that it is time consuming, complicated and does not estimate the calories in certain foods correctly.
FitDay – Product Description
When one registers for free membership to FitDay, they receive access to a number of weight loss tools that include daily calorie breakdowns, weight plotting charts, weekly progress reports, diet analysis and mood journals. Studies have shown that this type of ‘tracking’ can significantly improve the chances of losing weight successfully.
For consumers wishing to receive advanced features, the FitDay software can be bought for $29.95. It contains many of the same features as the free version, the main difference being that it is faster, provides more reports and can obviously be used offline.
The FitDay website does not provide any personal support or detailed fitness instruction, nor does it seem to promote any one kind of diet plan. However, it does give the dieter access to the widely used American food pyramid, which provides healthy, balanced meals without the exclusion of any major food groups.

FitDay Review – The Bottom Line
It doesn’t appear that the purchased software contains much more than the online version of FitDay, giving no incentive to buy the product.
It is recommended that a prospective customer tries the free online version first and, if they have the will and discipline to follow it correctly, then make the investment in the PC software.
