Weight Watchers are like the Microsoft amongst the health services providers. Yes, they have had such a huge success. The primary services they provide are assistance, training and packaged meals for weight reduction. In this article we will discuss various benefits that a customer gets when he joins Weight Watchers.
- Tested and proven approach:
Weight Watchers are not a marketing gimmick. They have adopted a scientific approach towards the problem of weight gain. Over the years, experts, dieticians, nutritionists, researchers and doctors have worked together to develop customized scientific formulas which have proved themselves over and again. Every minute detail of your eating habits and life style is taken in to consideration when you join Weight Watchers and through a rigorous analysis of your problem you are offered a suitable plan.
- No food is off limits:
Weight Watchers do not believe in starving you. Unlike many other programs offered by their competitors Weight Watchers do not put any restrictions on any type of food that you may want to eat. As long as you stay within the points target system, you are allowed to eat almost anything.
- Calculative aids:
Every program that Weight Watchers offer has a point value system. Every food is given a value. Some times when you are eating out side or at a restaurant it gets difficult to stay within your specified point limit as you might be unaware about the value of the food you are about to consume. To assist their customers in assessing these foods based values, Weight Watchers offers a calculator that can be purchased separately. They also publish and send booklets at regular intervals which have values listed against a number of common food items.
- More products to choose from:
Weight Watchers provide their customers with an array of different products and services to assist them in their goal of weight reduction. From packaged meals to cookbooks, from dietary supplements to DVDs containing workout regimes, almost anything that can assist you in achieving your goal is made available to you.
- Once a member, always a member:
After you have achieved your desired weight, there is a maintenance period of six weeks associated with all of their programs. If at the end of six weeks you have managed to stay within your desired weight limit, you are awarded with a life time membership. If in future you are able to manage your weight effectively, you are allowed to join any meeting or discussion forum at Weight Watchers and you will not be charged any fee for that. What’s an added advantage is that if in future you decide to join Weight Watchers again, being a lifetime member you will not be required to pay more than the amount paid by you on your first joining.
- Online support:
You can either join Weight Watchers online or go at one of their centers. All the programs are offered in both of these modes. Weight Watchers also provide many internet based applications and support material that you can use while you are training or dieting for weight reduction.
