Weight Watchers® is a flexible diet plan and comprehensive approach to weight management, where each type of food is assigned a POINTS® value and participants are allowed a certain number of POINTS® each day. POINTS® are assigned to foods based on calorie, fat, and fiber content. After determining the number of POINTS® allowed daily, individuals monitor what they eat as to meet their daily POINTS® Target.
An individual’s daily POINTS® Target is based upon their weight. No food is restricted; however, it is up to the individual to choose foods that add up to the daily POINTS® Target.
Additional POINTS® can be earned for exercise. Individuals also receive 35 additional FlexPoints each week to spend however they choose. Individuals can also choose not to use FlexPoints to increase their weight loss potential. Weekly meetings teach individuals about the Weight Watchers® program and offer group support to help individuals lose weight and keep it off.
