This has changed my life :)

Summary: I have had two of these as one stopped working after about a year and a half, however that didn't stop me ordering another one straight away. I have now used this product for 3 years. In the first year of tracking my daily steps and food intake I lost a fantastic FIVE STONE in weight. I have since lost another two stone making a grand total of SEVEN STONE WEIGHT LOSS.
Its not a game - its a weight loss aid - and it works better than anything i have ever tried - wonderful!!!

Summary: Firstly this isn't a game - its a weight loss aid - and it really does work. The ability to record my daily calories - be warned when i am eating too much fat or salt makes weight loss so much easier. Its the best aid to weightloss on the market i've ever encountered. The pedometer is very neat and i just keep it in my jeans pocket where it records all my steps and gives me a limit to aim for.
Summary: I have used this for 10 months now and found it motivating in that I have lost 2.5 stone. However the food choices are limiting and the calorie counts are random, often on the low side. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars. The most useful part for me is the pedometer and activity tracker, I am almost obsessive about it!
Summary: I bought this in desperation because I was over 5 stone overweight, and as I am one of the Pindown childrens "homes" child abuse survivors have a really bad struggle with depression that I have been masking with comfort eating, thats why I have piled on so much weight. This game is so easy to use, you dont have to count up any calories, Carol Vorderman does all that for you, you just have to log in what you have eaten.

Summary: I live in the States and this was given to me as a present from my other half who lives in England. I love it !!!!!! I love the calorie countup game, especially as I generally win ! hehehe :-) I love the walking challenge, the ability to enter my biking and elliptical workouts, that I can customize what I eat as about 80% of what I buy are things that are from here and not the UK, so this feature is super important to those who live elsewhere.
Summary: I bought this for my mother as a gift as she had recently bought some walking shoes so I wanted something to encourage her to get out and use the shoes! Well, this product certainly does that. My mother enjoys inputting all that she is eating each day and is walking a lot more as the pedometer makes her more aware of how many steps she is doing for a 1500 calorie intake diet per day.
Summary: I have tried diets before, but this is really good. Ok you have to keep putting info in, & keep up dating, but it makes you reolise how much exercise you are having, & how much you are eating. This game as you call it is really helping me. Thank you. Really recomand it.
Summary: This product is like having your own nutritional coach, motivator and fitness coach at your beck and call every day. I have actually been using it non stop for 20 months. I've used 3 pedometers - one lasted 15 months and only stopped working because I water logged it when my method for using it in the swimming pool failed me and the water got into the unit. I lost another and am now on my third.
Summary: Pro: The pedometer seems to work quite well and motivates you to walk more. Con: I found it difficult to enter the calories for what I had eaten as there was not much flexibility. I dislike the layout of the game and I have not used it for months - I think that speaks for itself! However if you only require estimates for calorie values you may find it useful, and I do like the fact that you don't have to clip on the pedometer and it can just go in a bag/pocket.
