Eating Healty, Losing Weight

Updated on April 5, 2012

Many of us have struggled with weight issues throughout our life, trying one fad diet after the other. Buying the weight loss pills, hoping for a miracle that would magically melt the pounds away. Getting caught up in all the hoopla of infomercials toting one exercise program after the other promising immediate results. We live in a society where we are always after the next best thing and expecting instant gratification. What we fail to realize is, it took time to gain the weight and it will take time to lose the weight.

The question at hand, is what is the healthiest and safest way to lose the weight? Believe me, when I decided that it was time to get healthy and lose weight I researched the programs, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem. I read all the paraphernalia, saw one commercial after the other, read about and watched videos of their success stories. I investigated the various costs involved and reviewed the nutritional facts on the prepackaged meals.

Weighing the pros and cons of each program was relatively easy because one of these programs allowed you to eat fresh home cooked meals rather than the sodium enriched prepackaged meals. It's my opinion that out of the three programs Weight Watchers is by far the best choice. You are able to eat your every day food items in smaller portions or choose from any of their frozen dinners or desserts. However if you are considering any of their frozen foods read the nutritional values carefully especially the sodium level per serving. That is what sold me on Weight Watchers is the option to each regular every day foods or their prepackaged food. They have a weekly weight in and support group where you can share tricks of the trade to other participants, trade recipes and find a walking or work out buddy.

Weight Watchers has a monthly magazine, on line support, confidential weekly weight in's the weekly support groups. Each meeting revolves around a specific topic and includes a motivational speaker. The members then ask questions, offer support and encouragement. Share healthy recipes and have a restaurant guide for eating out and eating healthy.
