Did you know that over 60% (and still on the rise) of adults in America are either overweight or obese and that obesity is becoming an epidemic? That is not surprising with the fast-paced world we live in today. People are busy and always on the go, living on fast-food sometimes is the only option to get a meal in. However, even with a statistic like that there are still those out there that are looking for a way to change their eating habits, lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle.
If you fall into the category of one of those people looking to get a grip on your health and lose weight, you’ll definitely want to check out the Weight Watchers (WW) program. This has been around since 1963 and it has been proven one of the most successful diet plans for decades, and with good reason.
Three good reasons for WW program
1. You can eat what you want. The WW program is designed to allow people the freedom and flexibility to eat what they want. It’s based on a points program – giving a point value to each food – and depending on your weight and some other factors (if you’re a male, a teen, a breastfeeding mom, etc) you are allowed a certain number of points per day. So, if you know you’re going to have pizza on a Friday night you can save a majority of your points (or all of them) to indulge in that meal and eat healthier no- or low-point food throughout the day. The key to eating what you want, of course, is still all about moderation.
2. Options for community support. Are you a people person? Do you need the accountability of stepping on a scale every week in front of someone? If you answered yes then the in person weekly meetings are what will suit you best. With millions of meeting locations all over the world, finding a location near you will be easy.
If you don’t want to attend weekly meetings and enjoy doing things in the comfort of your home or ‘behind the scenes’ so to speak then the online program is best for you. You will have access to tons of online resources with this option. You’ll find a community of others following the WW program, recipes, a calculator you can enter in some info and find out the points value of a food and much more. You can access the member’s area from anywhere. And there are now even Smart phone apps you can download and have WW at your fingertips.
3. No special food to buy. This goes along nicely with number one above and being able to eat whatever you want. One of the great things about WW is that you are not required to purchase any special foods to follow the program. You can work with whatever you have on hand or purchased. If you feel inclined, you can purchase some of the WW stuff they have available like frozen dinners, crackers, etc.
There you have it, three reasons WW is a great weight loss tool to use. So, if you’re serious and ready to embark on a journey of losing weight and getting healthy, be sure to check out this program.
