About FatSecret

   
 

FatSecret is a new online diet, nutrition and weight loss community that harnesses the collective contributions of our members to generate practical and motivating information so that you can make better decisions to achieve your goals.

The Secret is Out!

FatSecret evolved from the idea that the most abundant and highly valuable source of information on diet, nutrition and weight management is the sum of the views, performances, achievements and recommendations of individuals that make up the broader community. We've tried to create an easy to use system that gathers, stores and sorts the input of members of the FatSecret community to provide quality information and useful recommendations so that we can all benefit.

We think there's a real need to help people overcome their diet and weight problems. We found it surprising that despite the enormous amount of information and products relating to diet and nutrition in the market place (most of it costing a lot of money) such a large proportion of the population is becoming overweight. So what we're trying to do is to provide you with a structured system that not only assesses if particular diet and nutrition information is right for you, but using the contributions of our members, provides recommendations and advice that you can implement.

Best of all we think FatSecret is the diet solution of the people, by the people, for the people (as a famous US President would have said if the internet existed in 1863).

FatSecret is for Everyone:

  • Create your own personalized diet
  • Share your diet with friends (and the world)
  • Find information about all the popular diets you've heard about
  • Discover what works - how people are doing on various diets
  • Record your progress and track your performance against your buddies
  • Record the food you eat and exercise you do in your diet calendar
  • Find ingredients and recipes that are right for your diet
  • Search for diets that fit your lifestyle and needs
  • Discuss your personal diet or any popular diet
  • And so much more...

Did we mention FatSecret is free. What you see is what you get. Our view is that the benefits of a vibrant diet community should be available for all. We are not like those other sites that promise free consultations, profiles, plans or advice, only to hook you in and then direct you to some paid product or 'premium' service. We thought it was important to make that clear. Please relax and enjoy your time with us and contribute to making the world a happier (and less fat) place.

FatSecret is not affiliated or associated with any of the diets or diet companies that are referenced on our site. We provide our general opinion on some aspects of these 'popular' diets but in no way endorse or support them or their programs – we'll leave that to you.

FatSecret is not a medical organization, and information and reports generated by us should not be interpreted as a substitute for medical advice or diagnosis. Some diets may not be suitable for some people and you are urged to seek the advice of a physician before beginning any weight loss effort or regimen.

We are a new site, developing new features as fast as we can. We hope you make FatSecret a part of your day everyday. If you have suggestions or comments, please Contact Us.
