The Weight Watchers Diet Big Picture

The Weight Watchers diet is about making healthy eating choices, and enjoying physical activity to lose weight and keep it off. There are two ways to lose weight with the diet. One is by using a points system assigned to foods, and the other does not include keeping track of those points. The goal is to reduce your body weight by 5-10%, and have a body mass index less than 25.

While doing the Weight Watchers diet you can attend weekly meetings and enjoy the added benefits of getting mutual support, motivation, and get encouragement while you are trying to change your lifestyle.

What do you eat on the Weight Watchers Diet?

Allowable foods on the Weight Watchers diet come from all the food groups; fruits, vegetables, grains, starches, lean meats, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. The foods you choose to eat need to be low in fat and calories. You are allowed an occasional treat here and there. No foods are prohibited from the Weight Watchers diet since each food is assigned points based on their calories, total fat, and dietary fiber content.

Whether you chose to keep track of points or not, both plans consist of balanced daily intake of vegetables, fruits, dairy, water, protein, sugars, healthy oils, whole grain foods, and vitamins.

What kind of exercise do you perform on the Weight Watchers Diet?

Exercise is introduced once you get established with your food plan. Weight Watchers encourages you to work physical activity into your daily routine.
