- Our weight loss program teaches people to stop dieting and transition to a permanent, healthy lifestyle. Far beyond just weight loss, SparkPeople helps everyone learn to eat better and exercise regularly—for life. And people who don’t want to lose weight can still join and benefit from SparkPeople's tools, resources and community features. In addition to informative articles and interactive tools, such as fitness trackers and meal plans, members can find support and encouragement from our vibrant, positive community of members and experts.
All the components of our program mix in an element of fun so that our members truly do stick with their programs. With millions of members, we’ve witnessed thousands of success stories firsthand. We’ve found that using sound nutrition and regular exercise as a “springboard” for success helps our members find greater enjoyment in life and strive for even more goals, creating their own real-life adventures!
Read a note from our founder
This site really is free - with no strings attached. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world use SparkPeople.com to lose weight and make healthy lifestyle changes. Our biggest source of new members is word of mouth from existing members who love this site and tell their friends, family, and co-workers. SparkPeople can be free because my wife and I were very early eBay employees and are now using our earnings from its success to make the world a healthier place, as our way of giving back to society. Join today to see what everyone is talking about!
