Weight Watchers is a system that has been used by millions. The popular diet framework has had famous spokespeople as well. Oprah has been the model behind Freestyling, the Weight Watchers lifestyle approach to following the system in real-world situations.
When it comes to Weight Watchers, I have personal experience. I tried the diet even when I didn’t really have any weight to lose. I did it with my mom for moral support. The premise is that you have points and it’s up to you to choose how to spend them on foods. However, you cannot go over your point limit for the day. With this in mind, you can really make your wildest food dreams come true. You can have that chocolate sundae.
The key to Weight Watchers is not to overindulge. You have to make sure that you are eating within your point limit. With that in mind, most vegetables are zero points. As you can imagine, you can really fill up on them if you put your mind to it.
Freestyling is more comprehensive with giving you recipes to make meals and have those meals add up to certain points. You can be a little lenient when you are out too. You will be able to roughly calculate how many points are in various food items.
All in all, I lost weight on Weight Watchers. I really didn’t need to lose five pounds, but I did it anyways. My mom didn’t have as easy of a time on it. She continues to struggle with her weight knowing that her beverages are what is packing on the pounds. Ultimately, she quit Weight Watchers because she wasn’t willing to focus on her own journey. As with many dieters, the perils of weight loss are up and down. You can find something that works for you though if you know your triggers.
For me, Weight Watchers worked because I like freedom. I don’t mind calorie or point counting and I find it effective. If you are like me, you will find that Weight Watchers is a safe, supported way to lose your pounds.
