Online dieting started here. Choose from more than 20 diet plans.

Click for another option. It might be an equivalent meal from Dunkin' Donuts one glazed doughnut and a ounce specialty coffee drink with skim milk or another breakfast choice. The Web site boasts that eDieters have lost more than 5.

Unfortunately, there's no data on whether those pounds have stayed off. Leslie Womble, PhD, and fellow researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine may be able to fill in the blanks later this year when they publish an independent study that follows the weight-loss results of some eDieters.

Two other studies from Brown Medical School in Rhode Island suggest Internet programs that offer dieters weekly support or feedback yield better weight-loss results than plans that don't. The problem is the same as with any diet book or written diet advice: It's hard to motivate people to act on that information. Wadden sees "modest" success with Internet weight-loss regimens, but he adds that the numbers on the scale don't drop as much as when dieters choose a program that offers face-to-face support.

I sent an email to help ediets. I called to cancel and get a refund again and was told I could only get a "partial" refund.

The Supervisor was very rude and determined not to listen to my plight, basically telling me it was my own fault. I ordered a diet pill supplement to my regular routine. The company sent it to me and I tried it. Subsequently, it caused my heart to race and my Dr told me it could cause me to have a heart attack.

So I called them to cancel my subscription for their product and tell them I wanted my money back per their "money back guarantee". They said I had called after the expiration date. They told me I could not have it back after all.

I figured I would just have to eat it. I canceled the product, thinking it was over. When I started the program, they tell you that you can get all your money back if you do not use or like the services. I call them to cancel services 3 days after, the answer was that they have to charge me 4 weeks for the service even though I DID not use any of it. The customer services rep. I do not think it's fair. Please if can look their website up and see for yourself.

On April 19th, I registered online for a trial period with ediets. When I contacted ediets. This is something I was not made aware of and would not have agreed to. I also discovered that had I not contacted them about this, they would have continued to bill me on a monthly basis and may still do so, unless I cancel my debit card number, I just found out.

When I requested via email the account or invoice number for this transaction, I was told they would not email this to me and that I would have log into the account to get it, but I have already cancelled this account. I am an educated person and even I missed or failed to "see" this agreement they maintain was there on the date I signed up for the trial period.

I feel that these practices are deceptive and a scam to bilk consumers until they "discover" the real procedures this company uses, too late to recover the money stolen from them. This to me amounts to outright theft and this company is well aware of it - they just practice "legalized thievery". I would also encourage this company to list, in plain sight and verbiage, the method s used for obtaining money from unsuspecting consumers, i. I signed up for a program with eDiets in Nov.

It was very confusing and I should have stopped there. I wasn't even clear on how much it would be. I kept answering questions, which led to more - hoping that when I was done I would know exactly what I was signing up for. I was under the impression that I signed up for a couple of weeks and that it was over because in Jan. In March, when I received my American Exp. I called and they told me it was part of the agreement I signed up for.

I told them to cancel it and I paid it. Now I received a charge for March. I called again and they were no help at all. The operator I spoke to said it was what I agreed to and that it was like a gym membership.

I told her I never received any info. I just visited the site and could not find anything out without giving them info. It doesn't even say how much it is or exactly what they're offering. Customizable diet plans, expert support and a community forum are among the benefits of eDiets.

How does the eDiets weight loss plan work?: For a monthly fee, the Vitabot Plan allows you to create a personal profile and weight loss goals, then use their online database to create a meal plan and shopping list. After 5 weeks of being on the meal delivery program, they stopped sending me the meals, yet continued to charge my card.

When I called customer service, I was told they never charged me, then charged me again and never sent the food. I finally told them to cancel my membership. I am still trying to get all the money refunded to me that they took and never provided me with food. I was a member from until and I loved the recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists you could edit. They revamped the Website on Feb 12, and it still isn't working, nearly 2 months later! The meal plans print in a teeny tiny font you can't see without reader glasses.

The shopping list appeared, uneditable, and reappeared editable, but it disappeared again on Mar 12 and it hasn't come back yet. There is no one there in the live chat. If you email them, you get an auto-reply and then nothing. I have emailed and called with poor satisfaction. I finally called to cancel and they said I had already cancelled in January! I am still being billed monthly. I wrote a letter and mailed it. I hope they cancel me soon and this is over.

I tried this diet for 4 weeks. Some weeks they sent the food late. Another week they just didn't send it at all.

They are impossible to reach by phone. I've had to hold for almost an hour every time I try to call. They said they were having technical difficulties, causing the mailing problems and that this is in turn impacting the phones.
