Declare Your health: why Declare really works for weight loss
Beginning a weight loss journey, and actually sticking with it, can be very challenging. From the latest diet fad to juice cleanses to restricting the kinds of foods you can eat, many of the methods people use to lose weight are temporary fixes that don’t actually get at the underlying problem. With Declare, this is not the case. We have designed a program that meets you where you are in your weight loss journey to help you shed pounds and keep them off, for good.
How is Declare different?
With so many different products and programs on the market to lose weight, you may be asking “How is Declare different?” Our philosophy is different than other weight management programs — by using habit formation and behavioral science, we help you lose weight and keep it off for the long haul.
No Food is Off Limits
While food is fuel for your body, it is also one of the great joys in life and should be savored. In essence, we believe that you should be able to lose weight without giving up the foods you love. Most diet programs restrict what you can and cannot eat, labeling some foods as “good” and others as “bad.” With Declare, no food is off limits.
Small Changes with Big Results
Restricting what you eat works for weight loss in the short term, but when people hit their target weight, they often undo all of the progress they made by completely abandoning the methods they used to slim down. It’s no surprise that people will regain what they had lost when they stop restricting what they eat. This approach is known as yo-yo dieting, and it has been shown that cycling between dieting and regaining weight actually leads to an overall weight increase in the long run.
Instead of having you restrict what you eat, Declare uses behavioral science to help you make small changes to your diet and lifestyle that add up overtime. We believe in maximizing results while minimizing effort; we will help you mold your own behavior one step at a time, so nothing feels like a sacrifice. Minor changes to your daily habits will feel less restrictive and have lasting impacts on your weight loss journey, leading to healthier and happier living.
Forming Habits for Life
We’re in it for the long run. While other weight loss programs focus on short term results, Declare focuses on helping you create habits that allow you to live longer, feel better, and lose weight, for life. Weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint, and we will be there to support you at every milestone. Even after you reach your goal, Declare will be there for you, in order to help you maintain the healthy habits you have formed (and create new ones!).
One Size Doesn’t Fit All
We believe that there shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. Through analyzing your specific preferences, habits, and needs, Declare is able to create a program that is personalized to you. As you continue to interact with our interface, we are able to continuously calibrate and adjust your program to create a regimen that is just as unique as you are.
Declare Health Features
You have control over what you measure. With Declare, you can track important aspects of your lifestyle related to weight loss – what you eat, how much water you drink, or when you exercise – in order to shape your habits in the future. Without measuring these behaviors on a daily basis, there is no way to know which of your habits are and aren’t working to help you reach and maintain your goal weight. We make this easy to track, and work to understand these behaviors alongside you.
Tailored Calorie Tracking
Declare has the most advanced calorie tracker around. Our tracker includes millions of grocery items, a huge selection of restaurant foods, and barcode scanning for any food you might consume. You will have the ability to search for both branded and unbranded food, so if there is no label, it’s no problem!
We have also created a Bonus Calorie Bank; you have the ability to save extra calories from today for splurges tomorrow. We also understand that eating on Saturday or Sunday may look different than a typical Tuesday, and think you should be rewarded for good behavior during the week. Declare has a unique approach, and with Weekend Bonuses, you will still be able to lose weight, while maintaining some flexibility for that Saturday ice cream cone.
Research-Based Weight and Water Tracking
Our advanced research-based algorithm computes how many calories and how much water you should drink based on dozens of data points, specific to you.
Personalized Feedback and Advice
Declare builds a foundation for you to succeed at every stage in your weight loss journey. Through analyzing your particular habits, we are able to offer advice tailored to you that will help you lose weight and feel better. We are here to support you, hold you accountable, and be there for you through all of the ups and downs of your journey.
