'My Weight Loss Coach' (NDS) Coming to Europe - Screens

by Rainier on March 10, 2008 @ 9:09 a.m. PDT

Ubisoft Europe will publish My Weight Loss Coach, a program designed,under the guidance of both a fitness coach and a nutritionist, to focus on taking positive steps to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

More than two thirds of UK inhabitants are overweight, and almost 25% of them are obese (source World Health Organization). All over Europe, the number of people that are overweight is increasing every year, and there are common concerns about obtaining a healthier way of life, changing nutrition habits and finding the energy to exercise in order to lose those extra kilos.

My Health Coach: Weight Management has been designed to be an engaging and fun method to help reach and maintain a proper balance between the food you eat and the physical exercises you perform. When other methods keep you in front of your TV or send you to the closest gym, My Health Coach Weight Management slips in your pocket so your personal coach is always at hand, and will keep you motivated as it fits into your daily routine.

My Health Coach: Weight Management is totally adapted to the needs of our modern lifestyles. Instead of putting you under pressure and setting you distant objectives, it is a fun, short and rewarding method to help you and guide you, step by step, to a healthier more balanced lifestyle. After just 10 to 15 minutes playing each day, the coaching sessions, daily challenges, mini-games and quizzes will leave you feeling the difference.

For the first time on Nintendo DS, My Health Coach: Weight Management includes an exclusive device: a pedometer. Record your daily activity as you would with any normal pedometer, then simply slot it into the DS and transfer your efforts into your personalized health program!

An added fun incentive is that all your efforts and achievements are translated into distance. Eat better, exercise a bit and keep a track of your daily walking distance with the pedometer… and you will soon have travelled the distance equivalent to the Great Wall of China!

Apart from the physical challenges and daily sessions, My Health Coach: Weight Management also features trivia games, hints and tips so that you can learn everything you need to know about proper nutrition and working out.

Features :

  • Personal Profiles: Create your personal profile and evaluate your improvement potential, then set up your objectives following the recommendations based on your personal profile
  • Input Reward System: Log your progress on a daily or weekly basis, tracking your physical activity and nutrition habits
  • The Pedometer: A peripheral device that comes with the game and can be easily updated through your DS, it's the best way to control your daily physical effort, challenge yourself and balance your food intake
  • Real-Life Landmark Checkpoints: As a reward, all the physical activities you achieve and good nutrition habits you acquire are converted into measurable distances based on real examples

My Weight Loss Coach, rated E for Everyone, will be available this summer in Europe and North America
