ABOUT THE DIET
Back To Top

Weight Watchers has been around since the early 1960s and was founded by Jean Nidetch. It is based on the concept that each food item is given a set number of points, and during the day, an individual is allowed to consume a set number of points. The points are assigned based on fat, fibre and calorie content. The points each individual can reach during the day are different for every person, and the type of food allowed to eat to reach that total is not restricted.

Group Support

The Weight Watchers program consists of weekely group support sessions. Weight watchers has grown over the years and now has a global network of such groups and a membership of over 20 million people! Weight Watchers offers a "Winning Points" plan, a variety of food products, a website, and a number of help e-tools for those who are unable to attend the weekly group sessions.

DIET GUIDELINES
Back To Top

The guidelines for the program are very clear and provided upon joining. As described briefly above, each food item has a set number of points, and the goal of the program is to not exceed a certain designated number of points each day.

EXERCISE DURING THE DIET
Back To Top

Although no specific exercise is specified, aerobics or cardio daily will always help on a diet providing the diet offers sufficient calorie intake to obtain the energy levels necessary to do that. Since Weight Watchers is developed for each unique individual, this should definitely be possible.

ADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

If you are in the right group, the support you receive will likely prove to be very helpful, supportive and motivating. The weight watchers diet allows you to eat any foods you want, so in this sense, it is not restrictive at all. Weight Watchers has also been around for quite some time and has proven to be a success for many people. Thet is not just for those looking to lose weight, but for people looking to acquire good eating habits in general! Of all the fad diets that have come and gone, this is certainly one of the best.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

The weight you will lose off a program such as this one occurs slowly, and in today's day and age where everyone wants results yesterday, this will turn away some people. As well, not everyone will want to go to the support groups. However, strictly speaking in terms of the diet, the main difficulty is translating regular food items (non Weight Watchers products) into their point system.

CONCLUSION
Back To Top

Weight Watchers is good because it promotes diet for life. It gives us all the opportunity to study and learn about which foods are healthy and which are not, and with enough time and interest, this will help us to acquire good eating habits by second nature. It is especially good for couples or groups of friends to participate in together, as both can be motivated by the progress of one another. Everything considered, this is one diet you might want to consider looking into if you are looking for a healthier lifestyle and some knowledge on nutrition!
