Bottom Line
The points-based method of Weight Watchers is outdated and doesn’t go far enough to promote healthy lifestyle changes. For better success, stick with diets like Nutrisystem or Medifast Diet.

How can anybody claim Nutrisystem is better than Weight watchers? Weight Watchers teaches healthy lifestyles, physical activity, portion control and, most importantly, provides support - the real "secrets" to successful weight loss. Weight watchers teaches healthy cooking and doesn't promote pre-packaged meals, even though they're readily available in most stores at reasonable prices. Nutrisystem only provides expensive, pre-packaged crappy tasting meals by mail. No support. Unrefrigerated ready to eat food tastes like it came out of a can. Think Spaghettios. You can experience the same plan as Nutrisystem for less money by eating 3 Lean Cuisines a day. They taste MUCH better and cost half as much. Weight watchers provides a supportive environment and useful information to make positive life-long changes. Anybody can lose weight if they eat 3 tiny meals a day without falling off the wagon. Personal support is what keeps you on the wagon and helps you get back on when you fall off. Nobody is EVER "blamed" for failing!!! People who blame Weight watchers for failing them can say what they want. They're simply not sticking to the program and would rather blame the program than themselves. If they really stick to the program without losing weight, they should see a doctor.

Weight watchers points plus is a rip off. You pay to join, you go to meetings, you follow the plan religiously, and when you don't lose weight they blame it on you. One of their success stories, took a year to lose 15 pounds. I lost 6 pounds in 17 weeks, and that was counting the points on every bite I ate. AT the meetings, people sit around talking about food, some even eat during the meeting, while the leader chirps about "little changes".

Ww has been working well for me. It's been great for re-training my taste buds and getting me used to eating healthy. Weight loss has been slow but steady. I don't bother with the meetings. I track everything using the app. My mom has been my accountability buddy (accountabilibuddy) and we motivate each other when, not if, we have bad days. It seems to me that when you count your points, stop eating when your full, and have someone to keep you motivated the program works. I also really like being able to eat real food. Quality of life is just as important as weight loss.
