Weight Watchers Diet Plan
The Weight Watchers plan incorporates a point system. You are given a book which has every food group listed. Next to each item is a number. That number represents the amount of points each item contains when consumed. Therefore, after your first meeting and depending upon your weight, you are given a total number of points which you are allowed each day.
Thus, choosing foods low in points allows you to eat more and conversely foods which are high in points, limits your intake. Once you reach the maximum points for the day, that’s it.
The benefits of this type of plan are many. For one thing, you don’t have to buy pre-packaged foods and for another, you control the amount of food you eat based on the point system.
However if counting points is not suitable, you can take advantage of their Core Plan. This plan does not require you to count calories but allows you to eat healthy foods which are listed on the plan online, as well as in the booklets which are given to you at their weekly meetings.
While we can all agree that portion control is the basis for losing weight, this plan allows for weightloss in a unique way.
Whether you use the point system or not, with this plan you do tend to minimize the amount of food on your plate. Perhaps it’s because you don’t want to exceed the allotted points.
Whether consciously or subconsciously, the point system becomes embedded in your mind and you automatically know which foods you can consume and still allow enough points to enjoy a snack later on; even dessert.
Combined with an exercise program, you can lose pounds on the Weight Watchers diet plan and keep the pounds off as well.
