The process of building a personal fitness, diet and weight loss plan can be daunting enough to stop many people before they start. Oobafit is a new web service that can help you get in shape by automatically building a diet and exercise plan for you to start with, based on your answers to a few questions.
Oobafit asks you about your current weight and health, and what your weight loss and health goals are. The service will ask you a series of questions about what you’d like to work on and how frequently, and based on that the virtual trainer will automatically build a workout regimen for you. You can then track your workout performance, see videos of the exercises recommended for you, and track your progress over time.
The virtual “chef” and “nutritionist” will build a diet program for you, complete with menus and shopping lists for what you should buy and even what you should eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can then compare your diet plan against nutritional guidelines to make sure you’re getting everything you need. Oobafit is free and easy to use: it’s worth a note that before tackling any serious workout regimen, you should consult your doctor or a personal trainer to make sure it’s right for you, but if your problem is that you don’t get any exercise at all, Oobafit may be able to help.
