Comments:
Weight Watchers is based upon weekly support group motivation and their own point system to keep calories in check.

Can you keep it off on the Weight Watchers diet?
The
Weight Watchers program encourages healthy food choices and addresses lifestyle changes needed for long term weight control. Specific data on their members long term success is not available, but their program is designed for healthy weight management. 

Positives: Support group and weekly weigh-ins provide motivation for those who need group support. Meetings are widely available. Diet is well balanced and no special foods or formulas are required.

Drawbacks:
Translating non Weight Watcher foods to their point system is more challenging than exchange plans since their point system is not used outside of their program.
Program costs may be considered high for cost conscious dieters.

Safety and Health Issues
This diet is safe and promotes healthy eating habits and manageable weight loss.

Recommendations
Highly recommended for those who want a group support system.
