Hey everyone, today we are learning about weight watchers. Weight watchers is a points system weight loss program that calculates your personal nutrition needs based on your height, weight, age, and activity level. Your assigned daily points are designed with the goal of tracking what you eat. Every food as a point value members are instructed to use the allotted points per day, without going over or under.
When I was growing up weight watchers was everywhere from tv shows to movies everyone knew about it. Known as a wellness brand but do they really cover all the bases. Some would like to think that deep down its just another diet that sucks people dry. In 2018 weight watchers rebranded as WW International with a new moto wellness that works.
With over 4.7 million people subscribed and a spokesperson like Auntie Oprah it would seem like they have some secret to success. In my opinion with benefits like online support in the form of dietary advice, dieting tools, a database of food/recipes, fitness videos and workout routines keeps people coming back. Weight watchers has also made a partnership with Headspace to provide guided meditations and provide more mental health content. In my opinion most of the hype comes from the celebrities they sign these deals with but the question to ask is are they really following the diet?
