Weight Watchers
Weight Watchers was founded in the early 1960s by Jean Nidetch. Weight Watchers is one of the most popular worldwide weight loss programs and it has a proven 40 year track record of helping dieters to lose weight. Weight Watchers has a global network of classes or meetings involving 25 million people per week. This program never resorts to fads or scams to sell its product. Even in the height of the low-carbohydrate diet craze, which is selling like mad, Weight Watchers continues to advocate a sensible, long-term approach to weight loss. The basis of the program is a reduced-calorie diet (with no restriction of the types of foods you are allowed to eat), exercise, and behavior modification. Most dieters follow the Weight Watchers program by joining a weekly class, where they meet other dieters, exchange ideas and receive support and advice from the class organizer. However, Weight Watchers also provides an online at-home program. The program also includes group counseling sessions and group support - two aspects that can be vital in maintaining lost weight. Clinical psychologists, exercise physiologists, and registered dietitians developed the Weight Watchers program. It maintains a very integrated approach to losing weight. The Weight Watchers program does not offer fast weight loss, but it's predicted average weight loss of about 2 pounds a week is the accepted maximum. Go any faster and you'll regain it all.

TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly)
TOPS is the oldest non-profit, non-commercial weight loss support group founded in 1948. It offers a healthy, caring and supportive approach to weight control, at an affordable price. There are almost 10,500 chapters of TOPS around the world. TOPS mission is to support our members as they take and keep off pounds sensibly. TOPS' philosophy is that desire to change comes from within an individual and the most effective way to sustain change is to provide a supporting environment.TOPS is different from commercial weight-loss organizations because members can get their food plan and exercise plans from their personal physician or licensed health care professional and TOPS provides the environment to exchange ideas and support with others trying to lose weight. A volunteer leader runs local chapters, and health professionals often speak at the meetings. TOPS does not endorse any commercial food product and is non-profit. TOPS is affordable. TOPS is a leading supporter of obesity research.  

Overeaters Anonymous
OA is not a weight loss program per se, but rather, a volunteer support group for those who admit to their inability to control their eating. Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating . OA is a 12- step program similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. It can be a great program if you truly feel you cannot manage food binges, and that food has taken over your life. No health care providers are on the staff. The support of the group and the seeking of a higher power and spiritual values and learning life skills are the mainstays of the program. Many have found OA to be the real answer to combating their food addictions.
