I'm not tring to start a debate or arguement or bag anyones choice of weight loss. I feel like I am being judged because I do Weight Watchers. I'm just stating some facts that I am aware off.
people agree that eating healthy food and exercise is the key to LONG TERM weight loss. This is what WW teaches people. There are no foods or supplements that you have to buy. You are paying for the weigh in, information and the support
Sure WW is very successfiul fionancially. If their programme didn't work for most people, it wouldn't survive. And I'm sure that Jenny Craig and Tony Ferguson are pretty wealthy individuals... at the expense of hundreds, thousand or millions of people trying to lose weight too. I made the comments about statistics to show that even though WW is the most successful (and popular) system - it is still up to the individual to acheive their goals. If the person is not committed to their health, then they will never
lose the weight... regardless of what system they are on.
Best weight loss program: Weight Watchers is the top choice in many reviews, and it has been subjected to the most clinical studies. This program encourages a sensible diet consisting of healthy, ordinary foods, exercise and a positive attitude. Weight Watchers is also flexible, which makes it easier for most people to follow, and its cost is reasonable for a commercial program

I only had to do a google search on Succesfull weightloss programmes to find this information.
As I've said before: I think that any
weight reduction (to achieve a healthy
weight) is great... and people should do whatever suits them. They should take into account the cost, the support, and the long term effects/benefits. WW does not work for everyone - as I said before. Some people need different things.
If anyone has taken offense to my comments then I am sorry. I am not bagging anyone - and I accept if someone "doesn't agree" with me. I wouldn't expect everyone to agree! Like all of you, I am on this forum to get support and encouragement.
