Weight Watchers Diet

The Diet Weight Watchers is a balanced and balanced low-calorie diet

E ‘was conceived and developed in the 60s by the American Jean Nidetch for herself because she had trouble following a weight loss diet alone. The Nidetch then called six girlfriends as she wanted to lose weight and began to follow a diet meeting regularly to support each other in difficulties, to share information and tips. The experiment proved a success: all were able to reach your ideal weight and maintain it.

They decided to establish a precise diet with the support of medical experts, and thus was born the Diet Weight Watchers, which literally translates as “sentinels of the weight.” Yes, because the innovative part and the true strength of this diet have been precisely the support groups, regular group meetings that serve as powerful means of persuasion and diet control. Meetings are attended by people who are following the diet, which really is not seen only as a weight loss diet but as the acquisition of a nutrition education, along with experts in nutrition and psychology that act as moderators of the discussion.

The Diet Weight Wachers today is less known, however, remains a balanced and varied diet that must be followed for a period of about five weeks and then switch to a maintenance phase.
From a practical point of view is also known as “dot Diet” because it assigns each food a score based on caloric intake, fat content and fibers; and every person on the basis of age, sex, weight, height and lifestyle has a “budget” of Fr.greasy that must exhaust during the day.

The diet is divided into three meals a day and alcoholic drinks and sodas are banned. It is not contemplated the extra virgin olive oil as a condiment because it is an American diet, however, we consider a quantity of oil for seasoning 2 teaspoons a day. As with all diets it is recommended to drink a lot, at least 1 liter and a half of water per day.
The Diet Weight Watchers also attaches great importance to physical activity, which can be get “points” more in the diet.

The points that you have available are generally:

For women
Up to 70 pounds 18-24 points
71 to 80 pounds 20-25 points
81 to 90 pounds 22-27 points
91 to 100 pounds 24-29 points
Over 100 kilos 26-30 points

For the men
Up to 80 pounds 22-26 points
81 to 90 pounds 24-29 points
91 to 100 pounds 26-30 points
101 to 110 pounds 28-32 points
Over 110 kilos 30-35 points

The formula to calculate the food instead points:
[(Calories of the portion / 50) + (grams of fat / 12) – (fiber (R, 4) / 5)]

Example: a pre-packaged snack that has 157 calories, 7.5 grams of fat and zero fiber, will have 157/50 + 7.5 / 12, then a total of 3.77 points, but are rounded to 4. The rounding of the points are made at the half point closer. The fiber should be considered 4 if it is equal to or greater than 4, otherwise you put your real value.
However, there are also tables (you might have to download a table with the points instead of putting the website link below?) That bring the points of the most common foods, and on the basis of which can be made of the daily menuscombining together the different food without exceeding the Daily score threshold. Fruits and vegetables, but the most sugary and starchy, generally have no points so you can eat freely.

    Ciao a tutte! Questa dieta l’ho fatta 12 anni fa, è l’unica k mi ha permesso di raggiungere il peso forma. Dopo un paio di anni ho fatto prima 1 e poi un’altro figlio e il peso aimè è tornato, però devo dire k x me è stata una dieta fantastica xke mi gestivo i punti in modo di non dover privarmi di nessun cibo desiderassi mangiare. La rifarei subito se ci fossero i centri xke io sono una persona k sento il bisogno di sentirmi seguita. Ho provato altre diete, anche con i medici ma sono state un grandissimo fallimento, non mi sentivo seguita, aiutata come mi aiutavano gli incontri ww. È un vero peccato che siano stati chiusi.

    Spett. Weith Watcher ho già fatto la Vostra dieta tanti anni fa e avevo raggiunto il peso forma, oggi però essendo ormai più di 100 kg mi sento di rincominciare da Voi, ho fatto altre diete ma mi sono ripresa tutti i chili, vorrei sapere se rifacendo la Vostra dieta dimagrisco ugualmente.

    Nel 2000 frequentai la weight watchers in Carpi (MO) Italy e ne fui pienamente soddisfatta in quanto in pochi mesi persi circa 10 kg.
    Ho ancora tutti gli opuscoli e ogni volta che decido di dimagrire riguardo questi appunti e ottengo esiti
    Tuttavia noto che i punti al giorno che dovevo seguire sui miei opuscoli erano massimo 99 e differiscono di molto da quelli che vedo indicati qui su internet.
    Come mai???
