Weight Watchers Diet Plan

weight-watchers-diet-planThe weight watchers diet plan allows you to eat anything you like but you have to count points.

How Weight Watchers Works

When you follow the weight watchers diet program, basically each food is assigned points. High fiber foods low in fat and calories have fewer points and food with less fiber and high fat
have more points. Fruits and vegetables have no points so you can eat as much as you like on this diet without counting points for them.

On the weight watchers diet you are always monitoring these points to make sure you don’t go over your limit. This is how you lose weight, by staying within or below a certain number of points each day.

Weight Watchers Celebrities

jennifer-hudson-on-magazineThe weight watchers diet has been tried successfully by celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson.

While I am not a huge fan of paid diet plans this diet is one that is probably one of the better paid diets programs if you are looking for that extra help and support for your diet. You might want to join if you feel that you cannot successfully lose weight on your own.

You can join weight watchers online or go to one of their in person offices. They will help assign you your target points goal for each day by doing an assessment of your current weight and how much you want to lose.

Portion Control

Besides counting point values you are learning to control your portions or the amount of food you eat for each meal. This is very crucial to losing weight since most of us tend to overeat. Re-training yourself to understand what an actual portion looks like or should be is very important.

If you are anything like me, when I eat dinner I am tempted to round my plate up with everything. Our eyes are usually way bigger than our stomachs.

But in fact a real portion, a healthy portion, looks much different. Just take a look at what a real portion of food should be and  then think about how much you would probably eat instead. Most likely you will see how much food you have really been eating. That amount you are used to is likely considered way to much food!

With the weight watchers diet plan you have to train your mind to understand that you can really only eat a small amount and that in fact this is much better for our bodies and digestion then eating large portions.

So, again that is partly what makes weight watchers program and weight watchers diet plans so successful. It helps you not only lose weight but to think differently about food
so you can turn that into a long-term lifestyle.

Here is a one day sample weight watchers menu from the weight watchers diet plan to try if you want to follow this diet to check it out before you go pay weight watchers
