Product: Weight Watchers
Owners: I see Oprah just became a part owner and spokes person for Weight Watchers.
Weight watchers has been around for a very long time. It was started by Jean Nidetch in her living room in Brooklyn, New York in 1963.
When Jean went on a diet and started to lose weight, she invited some of her friend and neighbors into her living room to help them with their weight loss problems.
It eventually grew into the international company that it is today.
When it was in it’s infancy what helped make it successful was the fact you had to account to someone for your weight loss or gain.
It helped to keep people on track to stay on their diet so they would have a good showing on the scale. Especially among friends.
PRO AND CONS
Fairly easy to understand and follow the diet.
Plus the diet is individualized for each person.
Many Weight Watcher centers available in most areas.
Also the program can be done on line, if you have internet access.
Many different programs and sign-ups available with many different incentives.
It’s a sensible eating plan with portion control done for you.
Some very good and interesting recipes with points done for you.
Time consuming to go to meetings
Takes time to count your points and track your food.
Not everyone wants to listen to a speaker.
Can get expensive if you don’t lose fast. Average is 1-2 pounds a week. Sometimes it cost you money to gain weight, if you have a bad week.
WHO IS WEIGHT WATCHERS FOR
Weight Watchers is for anyone. If you have a problem with losing weight and keeping it off, you can achieve good results with this program. It does take time and perseverance and it’s not a quick fix for your weight loss problems.
So if you have the time and the extra money you can see good results.

MY FINAL WORD ON WEIGHT WATCHERS
I feel Weight Watchers is a good solid program. It does take a commitment but that is necessary with any diet, especially if you have a large amount of weight to lose.
If you enjoy eating a large variety of foods and don’t want to limit yourself, than Weight Watchers could be for you.
