April 24, 2019 / By Amice Question:
I need something easy to follow because of my busy lifestyle. Weight Watchers seems to fir my lifestyle better, but I don't know much about the program. LA Weight Loss gives great results and support from staff, 3 weighins a week, stuff like that. But you have to write EVERYTHING down, and eat their soy protein bars (which for a year or so supply is over 1000 bucks!) I am so busy with school and on a budget (as a poor grad student) that I need something effective but simple and as low cost as possible. Someone who knows about weight watchers, please clue me in!
I need a "plan" that I can follow, that keeps me in line, instead of just regulating my own diet. I am not very good at keeping my choices healthy because I am always on the go and cook for just myself during the week. I eat a lot of microwaves dinners because they are fast and you don't have to worry about tons of left overs. I need to reduce my sodium nd my blood pressure, and I hear that they are not the best option for someone who needs this type of thing.

Weight watchers has 2 plans, the core and the flex. With the core you get a limited selection of foods, like brocolli, plain chicken breast ect. With the flex plan you get x "points" a day to use as you like. You do have to keep track of everything you eat during a day. You don't have to buy any food from them, although I do buy some things cause they are tasty little treats. I lost 60 pounds at a rate of about 2 pounds a week. Finished up about 2 months ago and am still keeping track of everything I eat to stay at my "goal" weight. The first 2 weeks suck as you are basically starving all the time. Then your body adjusts and gets used to less food. Worked for me, and my wife. It is a little time consuming and a hassle, but your trying to lose weight, there is really no easy way to do it. Just got to pick something and go with it. Weight watchers also has weekly weigh in's. I never did go to any of those, my wife however did. I just do all my stuff online. It's $17.00 a month. Check out thier website, it's pretty informative.

Share with your friends
swap out brown rice or quinoa yes even the new super food which both add up to about 220 calories per cup for cauliflower or roasted peppers that are only about 30 calories per cup

It is just easier if you set your own plan out...perhaps buy some work out tapes? or hire some gym equipment for home?...and as for your diet...its not hard to set out your own and you will know that you are going to LIKE the food you set out :)

use a dash of cinnamon to give fruits such as bananas and melons a richer dessert feel without the sugar

I did both and LA weight loss is way more restrictive and even though they tell you to eat vetables and all they also sell crap to you which reinforces bad habits. Like they sell popcorn and bars and stuff that you can binge on too and it's expensive. I feel that weight watchers is much better in terms of success and freedom to eat what you want and just not too much. I also think if you join a gym you'd feel much happier because you will have a support system there. Just walking into the gym makes me happy and I feel I can do it. A trainer there can take it slow with you and you'll build confidence, when you've got that you'll eat better too and it's a mental/emotional thing so those will aline and you'll be happier altogether. Exercising releases endorphines and that gives you an emotional high. You want that and it will become addictive in a good way so you'll want to go back to the gym and you hopefully will make friends and take beginers classes. People at the gym tend to be friendly and upbeat and positive. That's the place you should be. Weight watchers will help you with your food and eating habbits. Combinded you'll be very satisfied with your results and how you feel about yourself. I lost 47 lbs. I want to lose 83 total. I know how it is and I am going to work at a gym so that I can help people the same way I am trying to help you. But I want to teach classes there. Like dance and step aerobics yoga and pilates and such.
Hope this gives you motivation and a boost to want to join a gym and weight watchers. I know gyms can be expensive but find one closest to you and hopefully it won't be too expensive. Sometimes you can get a discount too.

I've got something even better than Weight Watchers.
It's called The Logic Diet, and it was created specifically for people needing to lose 50 to 100 pounds or more and keep it off forever.
This plan requires NO exercise to see results, and the food needed to follow the plan is all available at your local supermarket. You'll never need more than a microwave and maybe an indoor grill.
This plan is very low cost considering you won't be spending all of that money on fast food and pizzas anymore!

I have been through it all and know what's it about. The main thing is to stick in there. You can't be an addict to food and never exercise if you want to live a healthy life and keep the weight off. I've worked out, done every diet, and all types of classes.
Nothing works, besides dedication and intelligence towards the subject of losing weight.
First, depending on how much weight you need to lose, your diet is the first concern. You can't eat 10,000 calories a day and expect the weight to come off, even if you are exercising a lot. Which brings us to the next thing. Duh, Exercising...
This is a must especially if you need to a lot of weight. Get at least 30 mins of some good hardcore exercising. Do some cardio, in the long run, it's good for the heart.
However, I find the most hardest part of losing weight/keeping it off, in my diet. It's so hard to keep your fingers out of the cookie jar or those chocolate goodies. I've found a great addition to help any one out, it's a natural weight loss supplement called Proactol. Now don't get all crazy on me and say diet pills don't work. That is true, but not in this case. This one isn't meant to burn pounds while you sit on the couch. It's an appetite suppressant, along with being a fat binder. I saved money on the pills at theweightlossplace.com along with getting some good info. It basically makes those fingers not go towards the cookie jar. For me it's the best pill I've tried and I've tried cupboards full. Now this doesn't mean you have to follow my foot steps but I've successfully lost roughly 70 pounds and keeping it off til this day.
Well good luck and remember what I said, Dedicate.
