Weight watchers is a great way to lose weight. It has worked for thousands all over the world. One of the only problems with this diet is when you stop counting the 'points'. This diet consists of eating so many points a day, with each food containing a specific amount of points. If you save up enough extra points, you can splurge at the end of the week. There have been so many people who have found results with this diet and lose weight, but once they stopped counting, they gained more weight than they have lost.
Your body gets comfortable with this eating routine. If it gets too comfortable, you won't lose weight after a while. But if you constantly lose weight with it, once you stop counting, all the hard work that you have done disappears. If someone wants to be on a diet for the rest of their life, then this is the one for them. Many people choose this because it is just easier. But for those who want to eat normal again after they lose the weight, this diet is not the one to go to. If you don't follow their specific guidelines, you won't see the results you want to see.
With weight watchers it is suggested you exercise with it as well. This will help to tone and keep the weight off. If you weren't to work out, but still lose weight with weight watchers, you increase the chance of your skin becoming flabby/saggy. This rule doesn't just apply to weight watchers, but to any diet out there. You may weigh less, but your body could look worse. This is why so many diets and diet pills put the statement "with exercise". Many times than not, this statement is in small lettering. This is a technique used by companies hoping you would over look it. They want you to think you just need the pill so you will continue to buy more and more of their product in hopes it will magically make you thin.
Before starting any diet or diet pill, read the fine print. Try to get as much information about a diet before beginning it. Just because it works for thousands, like weight watchers, doesn't mean it is going to work for you. Find something that your body is comfortable with and go for it. Whether you want to lose inches, or lose weight, don't forget to do it safely and be careful not to deprive your body of anything.
