Weight Watchers online program allows members to consult the comprehensive plan, which includes 24/7 real-time chat support from trained coaches. All recipes suggested operate on the easy-to-track SmartPoints system, which assign every food and beverage a nutritive value. In addition to nutritional tracking, Weight Watchers’ FitPoints program tracks physical activity by synching with devices such as the Fitbit and Jawbone.
Every week, those who opt for three months of meetings get everything that comes with the online subscription, plus weekly in-person meetings in their neighbourhood. Led by coaches who have successfully used the Weight Watchers program, the supportive group meetings help keep participants motivated and accountable.
In the 1960s, when the nation started to become more health conscious and a new, slender body type came into vogue, Weight Watchers founder Jean Nidetch began inviting her friends to come to her home once a week to discuss how to best lose weight. Those friendly group meetings are still at the heart of Weight Watchers, the international weight-loss program that helps members shed pounds by assigning points to food and drinks and teaches people how to eat in moderation, instead of restricting certain foods. SmartPoints are based on the food’s nutritive value. Weight Watchers now has easy-to-use online tools and apps so members can access the program at any time, but it also offers the weekly in-person meetings for those who would like the added support.
