San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2012
A new study published in Journal Obesity just last week concluded that people who diet using the Weight Watchers Menus and other programs lost more weight than participants of the study who were assigned to professional weight management counseling programs. This result could be affected by many factors, but it is pretty good proof that they Weight Watchers program does really work.
Part of the reason that the Weight Watchers can be so effective is that it holds participants responsible for their actions. For example, participants become Weight Watchers Lifetime Members when they reach their goal weight. When they accomplish this, they will no longer have to pay for the weekly meetings. However, they are also required to participate in a monthly weigh-in. If they weigh in at more than two pounds over their goal weight, they will have to start paying for the meetings again until they regain their goal weight.
The support offered by the group can also help to keep dieters motivated to continue. The Weight Watchers menus also make it easier to keep weight off and stick to the program, because there is so much variety and truly delicious meals that dieters never have to feel deprived and like giving up just out of boredom.
All of the Weight Watchers menus contain carefully portioned meals that are within the daily Plus Points allowance for dieters. This take a lot of guess work out of dieting and does away with the need to count calories. The study, which was headed by a researcher from New York City’s Baruch College, showed that after a 48 week period, those who were on the Weight Watchers program enjoyed an average weight loss of 13 pounds, while those on the alternate professional counseling program only lost about 8 pounds on average.
