Weight Watchers Diet

Review by Joann Bally CSCS

Weight Watchers, the most famous of the “diet” or weight loss programs, has been around for 40 years. Keeping up with the times, it now has a point system instead of the old exchange system (based on the American Diabetic Society system), and offers online programs along with the famous meetings. There was once a very low calorie quick start, which they seemed to have dropped. They don’t stick with their bad ideas. The early versions were so rigorous that people usually carried their own food with them, but now it’s loosened up so you can eat out. Whatever face it takes, the basic idea is you eat real food and watch your portions. You can buy their trademarked food, but don’t have to. You pay for each meeting you attend, or for the online service. Weight Watchers works, and is especially good for people who like the guidance and reinforcement of meetings. They may not teach you how to transition to using the WW system on your own, so you have to figure that out yourself to keep from regaining the weight, if you don’t want to keep going to meetings indefinitely. They are weak on exercise, telling you to do it but not providing professional guidance. Only people who have been through the program are allowed to be leaders or to speak at the meetings. They wouldn’t let me speak about exercise at a meeting, even for free, so I may be suffering from a little sour grapes.
