Comment posted Poll: Does Weight Watchers Really Work? by matt.
I tried WW and need to lose about 50 pounds, didn’t lose anything. Was on it for months and maybe lost 5 pounds at the “height” of it. The only time I saw any results is when I cut my daily points from may allowed 39 to maybe 25-29. At the point value they assigned ( reviewd by several WW “officials”), it was maintaining my current weight, and not losing.
The ONE thing that I could not get an asnwer for, and made no sense to me, is when they determine your daily points value, they do not take into account your body type. Example, take two guys with different body types (one is small framed and not very muscular and the other is naturally husky and has more muscle mass). Assume that they are both overweight and weight exactly the same. The skinny guy has to consume more calories daily to maintain that overweight status than the guy who is larger to begin with, but yet weight watchers assigns the same points to both of them. That’s what happened to me. I am a thicker stronger person than most and my points are pretty much maxed out. I actually eat MORE calories than I was before WW. Make sense?
Utter crap for me, and no one at WW would help or explain anything to me. They just kept saying to eat those points and I would lose. When I would claim that it was not working, all they would say is that ” you can’t expect to lose every week.” OK, but it’s been like 8 weeks with no results, explain that!
