Weight Loss Program
Founded in the early 1960s by Jean Nidetch,
Weight Watchers runs 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, and their official website
gives details of all services, including:
Weight Watchers Meetings or Weight Watchers
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.
Weight Watchers Winning Points plan
Weight Watchers is a commercial weight loss
program that focuses on balanced low fat nutrition,
exercise and group counseling. Its latest diet creation
is called "FlexPoints" and is based on its
successful "Winning Points Plan." Every item
of food from pizza to ice cream to carrots to bread
has a points value based on its nutritional content.
You may eat as you like as long as you stay within your
allotment of points. Each week you have 35 reserve points
(flexpoints) to use for unplanned activities or cravings.
This new program is basically the same as the old, but
uses the points in a slightly different manner. You
are assisted by a points "calculator" and
provided by Weight Watchers. To assist the dieter in
their lifestyle changes all members are encouraged to
attend group discussion and counseling sessions, mostly
in person, at local Weight Watchers centers.
