Weight Watchers Diet

About the diet

The popular Weight Watchers diet or weight monitoring of the 60s of the last century created the obese housewife Jean Nidetch from New York.

On a diet you can eat whatever you want provided that you are willing to count points. Each store is assigned with a number of points. Foods that are best have fewer points of the foods that are just empty calories.

This is a diet program designed more to help you learn how to eat healthier and lose weight forever.

The following marking scheme you can expect to lose up to 2 pounds per week. Studies have shown that gradual weight loss leads to long-term success.

Weight Watchers diet promotes an active lifestyle although exercise is not required to follow the program.

To calculate the intensity of training, you can use the number of heart beats per minute, or some simple physical signs. If you choose to monitor of heartbeats per minute, number of beats means:

– Training lower intensity – 68-92 beats per minute
– Training of moderate intensity – from 93 to 118 beats per minute
– Training of high intensity – more than 119 beats per minute.

With Weight Watchers you can choose any form of exercise that suits your needs. Some recommended forms of exercise are:

– yoga
– Pilates
– walking
– jogging
– aerobics
– swimming
– mountaineering
– Riding a bike
– kickboxing.

An important part is the support group where members once a week share information with each other about the lost weight and healthy habits. It offers a online program where you have access to recipes and advice, and at the same time can enter and monitor physical activity and progress.

When you reach your target weight, begins a period of maintenance of body weight.
