This book is an advertisement for Weight Watchers. I was looking for Dr. Phil's Weight Loss Book which explains carbohydrates, fats and proteins in a better way. Right now the only things I remember about watching my weight are portion control, four small meals a day, exercise and the fact that everyone seems to make "Your" size and weight, "Their" business. Let's face it -- I need more cardiovascular exercise and less sugars and carbohydrates. Now that I know what I need how can I find the time ...more

The big problem with this book is the possible -yes even likely- bias in its writing. Weightwatchers certainly understands the emotional and practical problems of the overweighty quite well. However, weightwatchers is also a stock market company, desirous to make money by licensing or selling their own products and services. While reading this book, I got the serious impression, that all weight reduction methods not being in line with weightwatchers`interest were represented in a somewhat critic ...more

I found this book mostly interesting. While it had information that I already knew, I did learn some new things about creating a lifestyle that would create sustainable weight loss rather than following some diet plan that no one in their right mind could follow. It is published by Weight Watchers though, but I was surprised how little it was pushed (the only time it's really mentioned is the Personal Triumphs of people listed throughout the book). I don't know how much of it I'll actually retai ...more

Basically confirmed for me that I am already doing the best thing by just lessening what I eat. Encouraged me to exercise more though.

This book is wonderfully full of information. It is easy to read and super helpful in understanding the Weight Watchers plan. I really liked the testimonials; some of the stories continued throughout the book, and that was a really nice touch. All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to embrace a healier lifestyle.

I found this book very well written. We all know behind myths, tales, or lies there is always a small hint of the truth. This book helps pick out the sliver of the truth and debunks the rest of it. A must read for someone beginning the weight loss/management journey or someone who has been through it all.

this book was positive and encouraging. the myths that were covered made sense with everything else I've learned. there are testimonials throughout from people who lost weight on the WW plan.

M'eh. Its good information, but nothing that couldn't be summed up in a magazine article. Also, a lot of parts become a very obvious shill for WW.

I'm turning into a walking Weight Watcher's commercial. But it's working for me.

Not useful. Not much substance. Mostly case studies.
