BACKGROUND

No longer do men have to feel like women are having all the weight loss fun. Weight Watchers Online for Men is an extension of the 50-year-old program that women have traditionally used. This plan clearly identifies the different needs of men and women, giving men a weight loss program they can trust has been built just for them.

Men and women equally struggle to keep off weight, with women taking most of that spotlight. Now, men can access the same program online women have relied on for years. Weight Watchers Online for Men is an ideal way to lose weight as it provides anonymity and convenience. Whether you're a husband and father, a bachelor, or a traveling businessman - Weight Watchers Online for Men can customize a plan to help you live a healthier life.

Men follow the Weight Watchers 360 program and have access to Weight Watchers Meetings. This is how Weight Watchers originated, with supportive groups meeting weekly and learning more about healthy living and eating from a group leader. While the program isn't customized for men, they are welcome and many men do participate. You'll learn how to follow the plan, use PointsPlus values, attend a private weigh-in and talk through some of the issues you and fellow attendees are faced with in your journeys.

As a meetings member you can sign-up for Weight Watchers eTools, which provides access to an online account where you can track PointsPlus values and food, track progress, access recipes, watch fitness demos and more. Weight Watchers claims that meetings members who use eTools lose 50-percent more weight than those solely attending meetings.

There are no restrictions. You're a guy - a salad and yogurt cup aren't going to do the trick. You'll still follow the Weight Watchers 360 program, and learn how easy it is to enjoy healthy meals that are delicious and satisfying while not having to give up juicy burgers or pizza.

Weight Watchers also has one of the largest recipe databases on the Web. So along with customized meal plans, restaurant guides and recipe builders, you can try any of the hundreds of delicious recipes all with your appetite in mind.

Weight Watchers has partnered with Applebee's to create menu selections that offer PointsPlus values. So you can take the family out for dinner or meet the guys for a game and still enjoy the foods you love without worrying about going over your target.

The Weight Watchers website features thousands of recipes for all occasions. If you're a Weight Watchers Online or Weight Watchers eTools subscriber, you can use the PointsPlus calculator tool to find the PointsPlus values of restaurant foods, and you can also consult the Eating Out Guide. Weight Watchers Meetings Members can also use the A-Z food list found in the Pocket Guide, or purchase the Complete Food Companion, and the Dining Out Companion to help them plan for their night out.

The Weight Watchers 360 program takes into account fat, protein, carbs and fat grams and encourages you to make smarter choices about the foods you choose to eat. For instance, you'll eat more Power Foods, which are specific foods that are not just healthy but also help to keep you feeling satisfied.

On the Weight Watchers 360 program you can eat anything you like as long as you stick to a daily PointsPlus values goal, and there's plenty of room for treats and extras.

I am a 25 yr old. 22 weeks ago I started weight watchers. Lost 37.8 pounds so far. The plan is easy and if anything it is hard to eat all my points daily. The meetings are quite women minded but there is always something I get out of each meeting.

Very much like Spark People, except instead of counting calories, you're counting points. Nice graphics, and I do like the info on eating out and the available recipes online.
Biggest Gripe: For the money, the least Weight Watcher's could do is hire someone to enter the data for their own boxed meals, as well as other products. Having to enter in the info endlessly is annoying. With Spark People, it was free, so entering in the info wasn't an issue. But if I'm paying a chuck of change a month, the least you can do is make my logging easier by having YOUR OWN PRODUCTS as well as those very near to yours already entered so I don't always have to have the box, bottle, whatever around to figure out the point value.

I really need to loose weight and have heard good reports from friends who have been on weight watchers and willing to try your way to loose weight.

Is Weight Watchers a lifestyle change or just a weight loss plan that has to be revisited? a lot of people here say "When i restarted WW" ... so i can't help but ask, is this a lifestyle change or is it a reocurring weight loss program. I want to lost 10-15 lbs and stay in shape, and not have to come back to lose 10-15 lbs again later.
