What Is Weight Watchers
WeightWatchers is now commonly known as WW International. It’s a weight loss system that uses points to track serving sizes and help people lose weight.
That’s the simple answer. It’s so much more than that! WW is one of the most popular diet plans in the world. When it started, it included support group-style meetings where people weighed in together and encouraged each other.
Today, it uses technology to help people around the world understand nutrition and portion control. It seeks to improve people’s relationship with food so they use it for nourishment. It still uses a points system, but customizes it for each person. Learn more about how it works from their website.
Is Weight Watchers Really Good For You?
This is a tricky question because each person is unique. If you have an unhealthy relationship with food or if you need to lose weight in order to minimize your risk for heart disease, then this program can help.
WW emphasizes the importance of nutrient-dense foods like fruits and vegetables. It also encourages members to eat less food that won’t give them vital minerals or lasting energy (like a funnel cake at the fair).
For most people, WW can help teach a healthier way of eating.
Do You Have To Stop Eating Dessert In Order to Lose Weight?
No, you don’t have to give up all sweets or all desserts in order to lose weight. Sweets are not the enemy – the ingredients in the sweets are the problem.
For example, if something is made with a ton of corn syrup, it could mess with your blood sugar and cause you to either gain weight or halt your weight loss.
Instead, it’s better to make desserts with high-fiber fruit and sweeten it lightly with honey. This won’t disrupt your blood sugar as much and can actually make you feel full.
