Weight Watchers


Wondering whether the Weight Watcher program might be right for you? The Weight Watcher program is a commercial diet plan where slimmers can chose their daily diet according to a points system.

Because the Weight Watcher System doesn't work on the premise of eliminating any food groups or limiting daily calorie intake in unrealistic ways, it has the approval of many nutritionists and health specialists, meaning it's a safe choice for slimmers. But what exactly does the Weight Watcher program entail? And what makes it a good choice for you?

The Weight Watcher founders have created a clever, easy to use system where slimmers get to learn how to eat sensibly through using a points system. All foods and drinks are allotted a point value that refers to their caloric count. Depending on how much a slimmer needs to lose, they will be assigned a maximum daily intake of points.

And whilst the plan does recommend creating a balance between the food groups in order to be properly nourished, ultimately, how you spend your daily point allowance is up to you. In this way, slimmers stay within their caloric allowance without having to learn and calculate calorie counts, and the can learn over time what constitutes a healthy diet and appropriate portions. Individuals can also 'buy' themselves more points if they exercise.

The eating plan is generally accompanied by attendance at a weekly group meeting where your progress is monitored. These meetings are also good for discussing potential slimming problems with like-minded individuals. While there is a membership fee, and then subsequent meeting fees, many people enjoy the sense of comradery and support that these meetings provide. On this plan you will generally lose between 1 and 2 pounds a week, making it a safe an permanent road to weight loss. Why not check out your local branch today?
