: I have been seriously thinking about joining Weight Watchers. Their new point system looks like it could be easy to stick to - but in order to get any more information I'd have to pay over $40 to attend the first meeting. Could someone who knows more about this plan give me a summary of what it entails and maybe some examples of how much points certain foods are and how much you can have in a day etc. Thanks!
-- I am currently on the WW program and I think that they were having a special here in the US that it was $15 to join. I don't know if it is still going on, but that is when I joined. I have lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks. I was 175 to start with. Someone of my weight being female, I was allowed to have 20-29 points in a day. You really do need the book that tells you the points in everything, but if you tell me what you weigh then you could really just buy WW foods and they have the points on them. The book is helpful for stuff that WW doesn't have. For example, I have Quaker oatmeal in the morning. Various kinds, but I have checked on their points using the point finder that the give you.. I have 4 points in the morning, lunch is a WW or a Lean Cuisine frozen dish that is about 5-6 points. "LC" also has the points on their frozen foods as well. So you could use them. Then I have my snacks, which add up, and then I try to stay between 20-25 points for the whole day. I can have up to 29, but what I am eating is enough. I hope that helps. Ask me other questions. I watch this board a lot or e-mail me at my address and I will try and answer anything else that you need.
