Weight Watchers Points

Weight Watchers Points make the slimming process much easier - once you have worked out that some food contains 5 points, you can compare it with another food item also worth 5 points, and ask yourself which is more filling and nourishing.

Weight Watchers points are a proprietary system of points used in order to simplify the slimming progress.

Instead of the slimmer having to keep track of fat, and kilocalories that they consume, they calculate the point value of everything that they consume.

They do this by looking it up in a book, or by entering the fat and calorie values into a special calculator. This may involve weighing the item, and adjusting for its weight, if the fat and calorie values are only known per standard unit of weight.

The slimmer is only allowed to consume a certain number of points per day depending on their gender and existing weight.

He or she records all the points consumed during the day. If they consume less than their limit, then they can carry a limited number over. If they consume more, then there is no extra penalty (apart from the guilt and weight gain).

It is quite a good system, as it uses the KISS method (keeps it simple stupid), and focuses the slimmer on the most important factors affecting their weight loss.

You can even get bonus points for exercising.

The other advantage is that the slimmer has total flexibility as to what they eat.

They can choose to consume their x number of points as pizza and chips, or raw carrots.

But after doing the diet for a few hours, they will soon learn that they have a choice of eating a small amount of high fat items that leaves them hungry, or a large amount of low fat items that fills them up.

This effectively encourages the slimmer to then cut out all high fat items, but making them do it on their terms, rather than just forbidding those items.
