Eat Your Way Thin, on Any Budget

Exercise is only part of the equation when it comes to slimming your silhouette, says The Sports Club/LA's Foster. Eating well and counting calories are just as important ‑- though they're often harder to do. For help creating a food plan that delivers real results, nothing tops the expertise of a registered dietitian. Here, the best ways to get professional how-to-eat advice ‑- within your price range:

Splurge: Visit L.A.- based nutritionist-to the stars Carrie Wiatt (Neve Campbell, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston have all sought out her services) for a thorough evaluation of your current diet and a new, personalized eating plan. The initial consultation (plus two follow-ups) will run you $200. Additional sessions are $75/half-hour. You can also enroll in Wiatt's Diet Designs food-delivery service, which drops a week's supply of nutritious meals at your door. Cost: up to $320 per week

Steal: Log on to www.myfoodphone.com to score the services of a registered dietitian for just $99/month. The program connects you with a professional who analyzes your diet via a visual "food journal." In short, you use a cell-phone camera to photograph everything you eat each day, then send the images to the site, where the dietitian posts feedback (positive and negative) about your choices on a personalized page. Once a week, the dietitian also posts a comprehensive evaluation (via video clip) of your progress.
