New Cheapism Research Identifies Affordable Diet Plans and Treadmills for a Healthy 2012

Share Article

Review site finds treadmills for less than $600 and diet plans for as low as $4 per week.

Weight-loss program reviews from professionals in the medical field and dieters alike size up cheap diets based on a number of criteria: proven results, the level of support, the ability to keep the weight off, and the safety of the program.

Cheapism.com, a review site dedicated to finding quality low-cost products, has rounded up the best cheap treadmills and diet plans to help consumers keep their New Year’s health and fitness resolutions.

The top cheap treadmills are the Horizon Fitness T101, ProForm Performance 400, Merit Fitness 725T, and Gold’s Gym GG480. Treadmill reviews indicate that, while these budget models are best for walking or jogging, almost all are sturdy enough to accommodate users up to 300 pounds. The Horizon Fitness T101 and ProForm Performance 400 both have 2.25 continuous horsepower motors for more rigorous workouts, while the Merit Fitness 725T and Gold’s Gym GG480 models are less expensive options for walkers, consumers going through rehab, and occasional joggers.

Topping the list of cheap diet plans are Weight Watchers and eDiets, both support-based programs (as opposed to food-delivery services). Weight Watchers offers online support or more expensive in-person meetings, while eDiets is online-only. Members have the option of a meal-delivery plan for an additional cost, but that program is far less highly regarded. The new iteration of the book-based South Beach Diet also makes the list, and users can opt for extra support through an online membership for a small fee.

Weight-loss program reviews from professionals in the medical field and dieters alike size up cheap diets based on a number of criteria: proven results, the level of support, the ability to keep the weight off, and the safety of the program. Cheapism’s top picks reflect these considerations. Weight Watchers and eDiets both offer well-balanced plans for steady weight loss with support along the way, as well as guidelines and tools to help consumers maintain their target weight. The South Beach Diet is a bit restrictive at the beginning but introduces banned foods back into the diet after the initial two weeks.
