04/12/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

A friend of mine has found some positive support from Weight Watchers in the past.  She has not been as enthusiastic about their new points system that they have recently revamped.  Weight Watchers is trying to monitor more how our bodies react to calories and trying to get their members to eat more whole foods. They consider most fruits and vegetables “free points”. Foods higher in fiber and protein were assigned fewer points and processed foods received a higher value.

This concept of free fruits and veggies is positive in that they are encouraging their members to move away from processed/convenience foods. Having no personal experience with the program, I hope as a client gets closer to their goal weight, they work with them to educate them on keeping the weight off through calorie in / calorie out realities. The calories in should continue to come from those whole grain, low fat dairy, fish, lean meats, and vegetable sources. That is anyone’s best opportunity for long-term health and achieving their person weight goals.
