Weight Watchers Review

Weight Watchers is one of those diets that never goes away. It has become a familiar beacon in a sea of fad diets and miracle cures. Although Weight Watchers has been around for more than 40 years their weight loss plans are always changing to take advantage of the most current scientific information and research. The lives of millions of people have been changed for the better after they successfully lost weight using this user-friendly weight loss system.

Weight Watchers was founded in 1963 by Jean Nidetch, at the time living in Brooklyn, New York. Like many of us, she found it incredibly hard to lose weight. Just before the birth of what was to become Weight Watchers, Jean managed to lose 20 pounds, but found that she really battled to keep up her motivation levels.

By sharing weight loss tips and supporting each other Jean and her group of friends all lost weight, and the word spread quickly. As the group expanded, Jean joined forces with Al Lippert to start up Weight Watchers.

Eat this not that and make a difference to your bottom line


Sometimes we need to take a step back and just be sensible and pragmatic about how we approach our weight loss efforts. Time and again we notice how small changes in our lifestyles can account for big and sustainable changes on the scales. We all know we need to follow a balanced diet, preferably cooked at home using only natural products. Great in theory…but in practice life happens.

In the real world many of us are running around like crazy all day, and very often simply do not have the time or the energy to prepare home-cooked meals. It is also just then when everything goes pear shaped. We choose from limited options, but make the right choices. Or so we think… The truth is that unless you’ve made it yourself, you simply do not know what ingredients have been used in restaurant food, take out foods, or even supermarket products. No wonder so many people, claiming to eat well, just keep on gaining weight.

It is for this reason I absolutely love the series of books “Eat This Not That” written by David Zinchenko, editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine, and Matt Goulding, the food and nutrition editor of Men’s Health. These books contain a wealth of information that comes in extremely handy when faced with everyday choices. They cover just about any situation, from food choices at restaurants and fast food outlets to supermarket foods. They are also specifically tailored to different audiences, including families and kids, so you can choose that which is most applicable to your lifestyle.
