The diet itself focuses on portion control with an emphasis on lean protein and complex carbohydrate. When you go to sleep, it will actually increase your metabolism while you sleep. I do exercise each day for 30 minutes. Learn more about 18Shake by following the link here. A Erdmann It is painfully obvious to me, after reading several of your different product reviews, that you are only finding ways to tear down other products in order to promote your own. Eat baked and boiled tubers skin-on to get more fiber for just calories a pop.
I found partially hydrogenated oils in some Weight Watchers frozen dinners, snack cakes, and ice creams. One of the worst is high fructose corn syrup. You owe it to yourself to stop buying these toxic products.
This program blows the Weight Watchers processed-to-death meals out of the water. Watch the video, and see what the program is all about here.

Have you done an expose on Cottonseed oil yet?? If not, please do. Keep up the good work. Actually she once said that cottonseed oil is the worst vegetable oil because it is not regulated since cotton is a fiber crop. She exposed it, albeit incorrectly as is often the case. Cottonseed oil is as regulated as any other vegetable oil crop. Very comparable to any other vegetable oil. Thanks for this great post. I know a good friend of mine who has worked for weight watchers for years. She did lose weight on weight watchers initially, but she is still over weight.
I am afraid of her reaction to this article, but I will share it anyways. I feel compelled to share this since the ingredients on the products in this article are horrendous. As for cottonseed oil Kobi, it is the most horrible oil for sure.
Cotton is not even a food crop so it is sprayed even more than other food crops. Cottonseed oil is considered a food crop and regulated as such. Nestle supposedly has Water rights over distribution in California. Joe Biggs of Infowars is investigating this, can you help him?
Weight Watchers is a great program and not everyone eats the pre-packaged foods. I cook all my own fresh food and count my points. Me, too , lost 28 lbs on weight Watchers, but make own food.
They do need to be put on notice about these awful products tho! This post is missing a few pieces. The meal to which you refer was designed for people on a diet who are still seeking a comfort food.
This is probably why it is their most complicated label. I think this piece is overly critical and presumptuous, as these meals are an attempt to provide low-calorie, convenient alternatives while still maintaining a specific target consumer base.
The preservatives have recently been taken out of the meals. FYI not every food company is evil and trying to kill everyone. I agree with you completely. But sometimes, as someone who works full time and goes to school, I grab one out of convenience. And, like you said, for the comfort. This is one of the reasons I left their program. Values for low fat and highly processed items that are not necessarily clean or real food. It always amazes me that people would defend wrong, then attack you for voicing your opinion.
The question is not which foods are bad, and why some are okay. They are capitalizing on their name, brand, and goodwill with people who are trying to be healthy. That trust from the consumers should be respected, not traded in for dollars. Some of their products help people stay fat. Then you purchase more of their products to help you loose the weight gain, and the circle continues.
Still want to defend weight watchers because only some of their products are bad? What makes them different from Monsanto, or Kraft? One drop of poison infects the entire water supply. I agree, that is the reason I just quit WW. People left with armloads. Carol, after tons of research, I have come to the same conclusion as you did.
You put it perfectly! I joined WW two months ago and have lost over 15 pounds…. WW has taught me to portion and make healthy food choices. They have a database full of recipes, and have not once suggested I eat Smart Ones. I think it is more important to clean our bodies of the chemicals and other not so friendly toxins in our food and stick as closely to real food as possible so that while we are trying to lose weight we can also get healthy. I have been eating organic now for a while and have noticed a world of difference in my health and my weight.
Thank you Vani for all of your help. Vani did not say Weight Watchers was evil and trying to kill everyone. She invites consumers to read the ingredient label and investigate. I agree not everyone wants to substitute cheesey comfort food for quinoa salad. But Vani is a health food advocate and these WW ingredients are simply not Healthy. If you go to the market and look for canned pineapple or applesause you will find just the fruit and real sugar but not the processed bad preservatives.
Plenty of receipes on line for kosher cooking. I am most curious though as to why start with Weight Watchers? I totally agree their prepackaged and frozen food is chemical laden. Weight Watchers needs to address that and improve their ingredients. But maybe frozen and packaged foods is the only hope someone has to lose the weight and learn fresh cooking in the meantime. Only her name is Grace Connell. It even uses the same ages and names for the kids. I think this is a scam to get people to by your products….
The key to lossing weight is just simply working out. Screw you Jenny…you may seem luscious…but your diet blows-no not like that! I gained 12 pounds below the waist. That really cracks me up! You need to eat right for life. Find out how your body works. I have personally seen it work over and over again. Eat like mankind was meant to eat. Ken… Also try to drink a whey protein drink at night it will fill you up and the protein is good for your weight loss regime.
During the day I also drink a whey protein drink and one right after my workout. Fitness instructors and body builders will tell you they would not reach their goals and keep them without supplementation of protein drinks. Mischa, the diet actually works!!! The meal plans are intolerable! Non sense rotation plan of carbs vs protein. I think it is an overpriced scam!
What is so great about this diet compared to many of those listed? No book to learn about the diet, no special pre-packaged foods and no membership fees.
The glycemic index makes you read ingredient lists. That alone will make one put a few hundred daily empty calories in the trash. The trick is to never add them back. I think that where Weight Watchers has it right not the new Core Program is that you can eat anything. Because honestly, it DOES have to be a lifestyle change, and I can never say I will never have my favorite foods and beverages again.
Eventually you learn to like the healthier foods, though they can be more expensive. I love salads but I have learned to pile on the greens and cut back on the full fat, regular delicious dressings. Actually, I find that less dressing on a salad tastes better than a salad smothered in ranch. On the same size salad, calories of full fat ranch tastes better than calories of FF ranch to me.
I try to choose dressings that even though they are full fat, are made of olive oil to be a bit more healthy. And that is actually a lot of food! I was amazed that a calorie healthy choice meal at a table with no distractions was more filling than a half of a pizza wile watching tv!
When you actually realize that you are eating and totally focus on your meal, it seems to me that you feel much more satisfied than when you are eating while concentrating on other things. Basically, the diet that has worked best for me is eat less calories than I burn 2, calorie diet for me to lose weight while trying to maximize taste and satisfaction.
I eat many of the same foods, but less of them with increased fruit and veg, and actually feel like I am eating more than I used to. And all the while losing a safe, healthy 2 lbs a week! I think the Weight Watchers program is a really decent lifestyle plan, if you use it properly.
I use their system as a general guideline for how I eat now, just not as strictly. Ken—if you are hungry at night, try to increase your daily water intake. I drink at least 64 ounces of water and find that if I am bored which is when I eat the most I try to drink more water to fill up my craving. At times I get sick of water, so I use a crystal light or lipton ice tea mix to add flavor without the calories. Another thing you might want to try is a glass of warm milk at night.
When you go to sleep, it will actually increase your metabolism while you sleep. I guess I should have mentioned, I am about 10 pounds overweight. Why do I seem to crave food mostly at night? I seem to have an uncontrollable urge to eat right before I go to bed. This mean eat healthier and exercise. There were some good ideas. This is the April issue. Losing weight is not the problem, for me, I need a plan that gives me a way to live after the nasty weight has come off.
No more diets where, yes, you can lose weight but you gain the pounds back with some of their friends along. WW is a great organization and I lost 50 lbs.
What is weight loss without health? Over the past 6 months of heavy weight training, I have yet to lose a single pound on the scale, but my pants are back to my high school size, and I can run upstairs to the bathroom without huffing and puffing.
