Weight Watchers She Loses, He Loses

A new book breaks the gender gap in weight loss.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Maybe you and your spouse have put on a few pounds since you got married or maybe you want your loved one to shed a few pounds to be more healthy. Weight Watchers, the lauded and scientifically-supported weight loss program, has just the guide for you. In Weight Watchers She Loses, He Loses, author Karen Miller-Kovach, M.S., R.D., encourages couples to lose weight together by exploring how the diverging views that men and women have on the roles that food and exercise play into weight loss affects their health.

The author, who is also the Chief Scientific Officer of Weight Watchers International, educates the reader on why and how men and women lose weight differently and on the negative health effects that excess weight has on men and women separately. It also identifies the different motivators that men and women employ to support their weight loss.

Weight Watchers She Loses, He Loses is a practical guide to losing weight together. Backed by evidence that suggests that the buddy system approach to weight loss is successful to losing and maintaining a healthy weight, this book works to overcome these gender barriers so that a couple can lose weight together and successfully.

DIET and NUTRITION

Weight Watchers She Loses, He Loses does not outline an eating plan per se that you and your spouse must follow to lose weight. It instead offers biological explanations why men and women lose weight at different rates.

If you and your partner decide to follow Weight Watchers for your shared weight loss plan, the program provides detailed guidance explaining what and how to eat. The diet consists of whole grains, fruit, vegetables, lean proteins like fish and poultry and dairy. You can follow the popular PointsPlus program plan if you choose. There are also hundreds of recipes available with Weight Watchers' seal of approval.

EXERCISE

Weight Watchers She Loses, He Loses does not include a specific exercise plan for you and your spouse to follow, but it does encourage exercising together since the buddy system in both exercise and dieting has been proven to promote the success of weight loss goals.

As a member of Weight Watchers' online program, you'll have access to more than 60 workout demonstrations that are catered to each person's skill level.

CONCLUSION

Weight Watchers She Loses, He Loses seeks to bridge the gender gap in weight loss. It is a practical guide for supporting each other as you work to reach your weight loss goals. Even though both you and your spouse may want to lose weight, your reasons for doing so and how you go about it are very different. This book looks at the biological and psychological differences between men and women and how these differences affect weight loss. The book is backed by one of the most trusted names in weight loss, having supported men and women for more than 40 years.
