The Weight Watchers Diet
- The Weight Watchers diet plan has been around since the 1960's. Members attend weekly meetings where they get weighed in to track their progress. The group sessions help members form a network of support with others: sharing similar experiences, exchanging ideas, and motivating each other. The meeting is conducted by a meeting leader who offers encouragement as well as nutritional and fitness ideas.
Members follow one of two diet plans. The traditional Flex Plan, where every food is assigned a point value. Members track the total points allowed which is determined by age, gender and weight. The Flex Plan allows members to eat the foods they like, but must learn to budget the points.
The other diet plan, known as the Core Plan allows members to choose from a list of low calorie high fiber foods without counting points. This plan includes a weekly allowance for foods that are not listed in the Core Plan.
Both Weight Watchers plans are designed for gradual weight loss while promoting a healthy diet and encouraging activity.
Weight Watchers Approach
All across America, people are planning their daily menus according to Weight Watchers' innovative point system, which assigns a certain number of points to different foods based on calories, fiber, fat, and serving size. For instance, a Quarter Pounder with cheese from McDonald's is 13 points; corn on the cob is 3. Each day, dieters attempt to stay within their maximum point range in order to lose weight. read more

The Most Efficient Way To Measure Body Fat
As a personal trainer I get all my clients to subscribe to the motto, ''It is not how much you weigh, but how much body fat you DON'T have!'' Body fat percentage is simply a measurement of the body's muscle to fat ratio. You may have been in the mall and seen scales and other gizmos that can test your body fat. But don't be fooled. Most of these scales don't have the ability to insert age, activity level, measurements, or even height. Many of these simply use an inaccurate math program inside the computer chip that basically guesses your body fat.read more
