Weight Watchers

Book Summary   by:JeanBaileyRobor     Original Authors: Albert Lippert; Jean Nidetch
ª
 
Weight Watchers is famous for its point counting plan. However, they now offer a no point counting plan for those that find counting points too difficult. Weight Watchers offer a plan called Turnaround that helps women make positive changes to take off excess weight. It is broken down into two eating systems. The Flex Plan incorporates counting points to control how much you eat. On this plan you can enjoy a full range of food options and choose any food as long as you stay within the point range. The other plan is the Core Plan. On this plan you can eat good wholesome foods including fruits and vegetables, grains and starches, lean meats and poultry, and eggs and dairy products. You cannot eat anything you want, but you can enjoy the occasional treat in controlled amounts. Weight Watchers also offers support meetings for their dieters to attend. With support and guidance, they help the dieter to reach her goal. Weight Watchers also offers online support through their website: http://www.weightwatchers.com/ There is a lot of information offered when you join Weight Watchers. From support at home to recipe suggestions to suggestions for food selections at restaurants. There is a community recipe swap online that can help keep your food selections interesting. Weight Watchers was founded by Albert Lippert and Jean Nidetch in 1963. The company was acquired by the H.J. Heinz Company in 1978. Today the Weight Watchers plan is known and practiced worldwide.
