The online version of Weight Watchers uses the ProPoints system, which allocates a number of points to each food. Each individual is allocated a number of daily points depending on their weight and goals, allowing them to choose and track what they eat via the site.
The program also includes:
- Message boards and forums
- Weekly weigh-ins
- Information on exercise
Kellie says The points system is a really good way of giving people flexibility to adapt to a particular situation. Developed under the supervision and advice of medical and nutritional experts, it has been around for a long time.
Nathan says On the whole the physical component is lacking, beyond providing information about exercise. Studies have shown that just providing information about exercise isn’t a successful strategy.
