  1. It does for some folks. You must be disciplined, focused and relentless in their way.
    It worked for my friend Kay and still does.
    It did not work for me.
    I am not disciplined, focused and relentless in their way.
    I find diets and food plans tedious and difficult. I literally hate all of them for me.
    When registered dieticians, manufacturers, scientists and doctors make diets and food plans fun and easy, which by the way has been figured out by some (they’re just not telling all of us), all persons will be slim and trim.
    I tried at least 50 different diets and food plans and supplements and whatever and very few things worked easily. Like I said, an herbal doctor used wraps that worked beautifully. I lost 28 pounds and still keep it off. He changed his formula and that was the end of that. When I went back after a few years, it never worked again. He changed his formula. Why did he change it? Who knows? Maybe he wanted to make more money and the first wraps were too efficient. It’s usually all about the money.
    Weight Watchers is a safe, healthy way to lose weight. It helps a lot of people. You have to have the time and the money to do it their way. Nothing wrong with that. It’s basically designed to get you to change your lifestyle of eating and exercising. You’ll live longer and feel better. My friend Kay is up to 100 pounds of weight loss. It has taken her from 2010 to now to get there. She still has another 60 pounds to go. That is mindnumbingly slow to me. If I don’t see immediate results I get bored and quit. That’s my personality. I look for another way. That’s why I loved the wraps that worked so much. For me, it took about a year for the fat to completely dissolve. But the result was immediate for me. I never gained back the weight. Why? Because I was so happy, I changed my eating habits. I basically stopped eating all sweets except on very special occasions. For example, ye…

  2. Weight Watchers is a popular weight loss program that attracts hundreds of thousands of new members each year. Its flexible, point-based system attracts many dieters and highlights the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. Studies have found that Weight Watchers is an effective way to lose weight and not get it back.

  3. Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Noom (online AP) or any other program are only as good as the dieter’s resolve.
    What tends to make these programs more effective than dieting alone is:
    convenience, they take the guess work out of the equation and spoon feed you the proper nutrition and calories (pun intended)
    support, most have counselors who you can talk to about any problems or issues you’re having.
    That being said, you can build your own program and be just as successful IF you can stick with it. All these types of programs are designed to help you do just that.

  4. Every diet works to some degree. Weight Watchers, South Beach, Paleo, Keto, you name it. They all work. The bigger issue with diets are whether or not they are sustainable.
    Most people’s approach to losing weight is like this: “I’ve gotta get rid of this beer gut/thunder thighs and drop 30–40 pounds.” That’s it. That is the end of it. They pick one of the popular fad diets and get after it. Some lose the weight and many don’t. Those who do, get to their goal weight and then they celebrate…. by quitting that “DREADED DIET.” Within a week, they’re scarfing fries and pizza like there’s no tomorrow and they have the mindset of “If I did it once, I can do it again,” as they tick their way up the scale again. This is your typical yo-yo diet.
    Changing dietary habits is like working out. You don’t just go all in with a 500 lb. deadlift your first day in the gym. Why do you think you should just go all in with a bunch of foods you’re not used to and probably won’t initially like? Your tastebuds have to change as well.
    So, does Weight Watchers work? Yes. They all work. But, most people miss that lifestyle change means FOR LIFE. So, whether it’s Weight Watchers or some other diet, you need to ensure that whatever you do is for life and not some temporary means to an end.
    Finally, I’d like to say that while exercise doesn’t burn as many calories as you might think it does, there is something I have personally noticed about it: The more intense the exercise regimen, the cleaner I want to eat. This is a deeply biological feeling and not psychological. I suspect your body just craves what it needs and pushing your body might help to stimulate those cravings of healthy food. That’s only been my experience, but I have heard others describe it similarly.

  5. Weight Watchers has a pattern for success but they are not beyond evolving with the needs of the time. While they will be the first to state that the most successful participants typically attend the meetings, Weight Watchers also offers alternatives for those with busy schedules and even those that are simply too afraid to go to the meetings. For these people there is the anonymity of online forums, message boards, and support groups.
    Weight Watchers hasn’t limited its evolutionary process to this alone, they’ve also in recent years added a points system that allows dieters participating in their program to more easily gauge how well they are doing by their dietary standards and requirements without needing to count every single calorie or weighing their food. We live in a world of busy people and it is often more hassle than many dieters find to be worth the effort to count every single calorie (particularly when dining out).
    Commitment to Fitness
    Weight Watchers knows that it isn’t just diet that gets results. When you combine diet with exercise the results are much more immediate and more profound. The fact that Weight Watchers stresses the importance of exercise and physical fitness in addition to proper nutrition and changing your way of thinking when it comes to food is yet another reason for their widely known success.
    It seems that there is a new weight loss program cropping up every other month or so and yet Weight Watchers continues to achieve visible and sustainable results in those who really work the program. Very few programs can make that claim for as long as Weight Watchers has been able to.
    When you combine all of the things mentioned above with the pre packaged foods that are offered by Weight Watchers, the extensive recipes that are available for Weight Watcher’s participants, and a solid track record for success you would be robbing yourself of the potential for lasting success if you didn’t at least see what the plan has to offer you.

  6. Yes, Weight Watchers works if you follow the plan. The benefit of Weight Watchers over other diets like keto (I have done both), is that with Weight Watchers, NO FOOD is off the table. You can eat any type of food your heart desires. The caveat to this is portion control. So on my Weight watchers plan, I can eat as much fruit and vegetables as I want, but if I want pizza, I’m limited to the amount that I can eat. How limited? Well on my plan (I’m a 6′2″ male), I can eat about two slices of Detroit style (thick crust) pizza for dinner assuming I made decent food decisions during the day. You are given a certain number of “points” for the day as well as a number of extra “points” for the week. If I want to splurge for dinner on Saturday, I might save up my weekly points during the week so I stay on plan. In addition to this, Weight Watchers offers workshops that I highly recommend you attend. It’s a great way to get encouraged, and it helps to see you aren’t in this alone. I will say this, I have never gone hungry on weight watchers, and there is no reason to ever go hungry while dieting.

  7. It works moderately better than attempting to lose weight on your own; the social pressure encourages you to stick to your diet and exercise goals. That being said, there’s nothing magical about it, and you can get the same effect for free through an informal group of people working to lose weight.

  8. To a degree. Weight Watchers is an easier form of calorie counting, allowing a certain number of points per day, and assigning different amounts of points for different types of foods.
    While this and other forms of portion control can work initially, this isn’t sustainable due to the fact that one isn’t make informed food choices. Focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY, and you will reap the benefits.

  9. Studies have found that Weight Watchers is an effective way to lose weight and keep it off. If you’re looking for an evidence-based weight-loss program that lets you indulge in your favorite foods once in a while, Weight Watchers might help you reach your health and wellness goals. ZeroPoint foods were specifically chosen because the World Health Organization guidelines recommend eating them more frequently than other foods as part of a healthy pattern of eating. ZeroPoint foods are tough to overeat. Sure, you could eat 13 bananas, but would you want to? Probably not.

  10. I have noticed that some people are more successful in weight-loss when a full program is prescribed. I like to cook and I understand nutrition. I enjoy the challenge of making ‘healthy’ food interesting. Some people need more than just basic guidelines, and for these, something like Weight Watchers can be successful.

  11. It certainly helped me. (I did the on-line program, “Digital,” not “Digital + Studio,” which involves meetings.)
    A little background: I found out I was a type 2 diabetic. As a result, I switched to a low-carb diet. That brought my blood glucose levels under good control, but I id not lose much weight. Then I started the WW program while staying on the low-carb diet, and it became easy. My current diet advice has the details and the reasons for various choices. Take a look at that. I also discuss there how the WW point system resulted in my making more healthful food choices over time.
    After about a year, I had internalized the point system so that I no longer needed to use it on-line, but I definitely found it helpful.
