Using a shopping list not only helps you to save money but will also keep you on track to losing weight. Researchers in Australia tracked 163 dieting women. Of those 163, half used a shopping list, half did not. Guess what?

These list users were able to resist the “impulse buy”. With eDiets you can access your list from your phone or print it out and take it with you from home. Planning meals ahead of time, by using eDiets, helps people better gauge caloric intake and stick to a meal schedule.
