There are many diet and exercise programs on the market. Many diets are very restrictive and limit you on what you can and cannot eat. When people make a mistake on these restrictive diets they tend to just throw in the towel and feel hopeless. However, some people turn to weight watchers, a program that is designed to prevent failure, and support success. First you should understand how weight watchers works, then learn how this revolutionary program began.
Weight Watchers uses a points system to show you how not all calories are created equally. The points system is designed to help weight watchers make better food choices. The weight watchers site actually has photo demonstrations that show the difference between 11 points of junkfood and 11 points of healthy food. You can see that you can eat the same 11 points of healthy food and get 2x as much food, whereas if you choose the 11 junkfood points you would only get half the food. The point system really shows you how to get the biggest bang for your buck. Points are based individually on the person’s height, weight, age, and gender.
The second way weight watchers works is through support. Weight watchers has found that through support people are capable of wondrous things. You can choose to attend weekly meetings in person once a week, or meetings, support groups, and forums can all be accessed online. If you attend personal meetings you will receive the tips, stories, and support of the people who have successfully become lifetime members of weight watchers as well as other people who are going through similar situations as you. If you choose to participate in weight watchers online groups you will receive tips, stories, and support from members as well as forums and discussion boards on most any topic weight loss related. You can ask questions and get answers all through the privacy of your own home. You can also sign up for the weight watchers weekly newsletter all for free. Newsletters will include popular topics and discussions, recipes that are super delicious and low in points, and tips for reaching your weight loss goal. You can also get all the tools for tracking points, progress, and weight watchers points calculator all online.
Weight watchers was actually founded in the 1960’s by Jean Nidetch of Queens, New York. It was in her Queens home that Jean would invite people in to her home to discuss weight loss tips, tricks, and recipes. Now Jean’s weekly group meetings has expanded to millions of people-men and women, all over the world. Now people in every continent in the world get together once a week to discuss their weight loss journeys, and to support one another to reaching weight loss goals.
Weight watchers is now global and is very set on helping people better themselves. The weight watchers goal and philosophy is to help you make positive changes required to lose weight, guiding you to make positive behavioral changes in your life. Inspiring you with support and the belief that you will succeed. Motivating and supporting you each step of the way. Weight watchers believe a healthy body comes from a healthy lifestyle. The program does not tell you what you can and cannot eat but rather gives you the guidance, support, and tools to make right food decisions.
