Weight Watchers Diet Review
Weight Watchers was founded in the early 1960s by Jean Nidetch. It has evolved over the years from a food exchange system that gave a set number of calories and food exchanges to follow for each meal and snack.
Now Weight Watchers is a points based system whereby points are assigned for each food based on fat, fiber and calorie content and each person is set a points target for each day and they can eat any variety of food that adds up to that total, each person is responsible for meeting their own targets.
The Weight Watchers program is conducted in a group support system with weekly meetings. Weight Watchers has a global network of support groups meetings involving over 20 million people. Weight Watchers also offer an online program for those who do not wish to attend weekly weigh-ins.
It also offers Weight Watchers Winning Points plan, Weight Watchers Products, Weight Watchers Magazine and Weight Watchers e-Tools.
