Weight Watchers has certainly stood the test of time. Founded back in the late 1960’s, thousands of people have lost weight using this popular weight loss plan.
So, great, right? Go sign up? Not so fast… Weight Watchers may be the oldest, but it’s not the best program for everyone.
Weight Watchers & Its Weaknesses…
|Clever points-based program takes the thinking out of calorie counting.||What else do the points measure? There’s more to weight loss than calories!! (Explanation in a sec…)|
|Classes for group support.||You are the one who gained weight. Shouldn’t YOU rely on YOU to lose the weight? (Maybe, maybe not… keep reading)|
|Thousands have reported success with the program.||The program is lacking in long-term studies to see if participants kept the weight off for good.|
Lose Weight but Stay Unhealthy? (And maybe gain it back?)
I have mixed feelings about weight watchers because for some, Weight Watcher’s has been a saving grace. It does help people get a grip on portions and understanding the caloric cost of one type of food versus the next.
What it lacks, however, is more information and help in choosing very healthy foods (loaded with phytochemicals, antioxidants and fiber) versus foods that may be low in calories (or points), but also lacking in nutritional value.
Remember, even thin people can be unhealthy if they eat poorly.
And what about the group thing? I’m not gonna’ pick on this too much because I know support is a good thing when a person’s trying to lose weight.
BUT, some folks theorize that part of the lack of long-term results with weight loss may be due to this group effort. Once the group is done (and you probably won’t continue for life), will you have what it takes to stay strong and keep the weight off?
Don’t Want to Count Points or Go to Class? I have another option… and it won’t cost you a single penny!!
FREE! My 100% free weight loss report will help get you on the right track towards weight loss. Rather than rely on a points system, why not learn what to choose based on some very simple guidelines.
We all know when we make obvious dieting mistakes (snarfing down a bag of chips), but what if you’re making mistakes and don’t even know it? What if I told you there are foods that will keep you fat and foods that can help you burn fat?
And guess what? They could have the very same caloric content… but one is bad for your waistline and the other is good!

Great download! I am a real skeptic – especially with downloads, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by your write-up. It makes sense! A friend recommended Sensa and after reading your site, I am (once again) too skeptical to try.”
