Is Weight Watchers for you?

Filed under:

I know lots of people who are trying or have tried Weight Watchers at some point in their life. Most have given up on it or lost a few pounds but gained them all back, but some have done really well on the program, including my friend Fran. Promising that you can eat anything in moderation, the weight-loss program is one of the most popular in the world. Is it for you? Here's a brief explanation, courtesy of AOL Body;

The main tenet (of Weight Watchers) is to consume fewer calories than you expend. Instead of counting calories, however, you'll either track your consumption using a POINTS system or use the no-counting Core Plan in which you select foods from a detailed list.

The plan basically follows a low-fat, high-fibre model, and for $12-$14 a month, you have access to materials outlining plan, plus you can attend meetings which help keep you on track. Fitness is encouraged, and you're welcome to eat out -- the POINTS program has an extensive list of the values of popular menu items. The plan is nothing is not flexible, which is one of it's main selling points.

What do you think of Weight Watchers?
