How this diet works:
Weight Watchers has historically been based on a food exchange system, where each participant is given a set number of calories and food exchanges to follow for each meal and snack. The new 1-2-3 Success Plan is based on a point system, where every food is assigned a number of points based on its fat, fiber and calorie content. Each person is assigned a set number of points for each day.
The group support is often fun and encouraging; the meal plans are based on health principles; and the new 1-2-3 program allows all foods to be enjoyed as long as you can fit in their 'points.' Weight Watchers groups are found virtually everywhere, including many work locations.
If you're looking for rapid weight loss, this program could be frustrating since it focuses on slower, long-term loss.
