A classic weight loss and maintenance plan, Weight Watchers includes a few excellent principles. One of the best parts of this diet plan is the unlimited fruits and vegetables—boosting your intake of nutrients and fiber. The point system gives you control over your food choices because you decide which foods you eat and how much. By learning which foods are more calorically dense (higher in WW points), you learn how quickly calories add up. Weight Watchers is one of the few diets that can successfully evolve into a long-term lifestyle—it definitely has worked for successful dieters, along with these other secrets.
Currently a hot research topic, this approach has its positive points—though there are eight things you should know before trying this intermittent fasting. Some people fast every other day, others limit their eating hours between, say, 10 am and 7 pm. Doing this forces you to get in tune with your hunger and satiety cues. You can’t just eat whenever you want, so you’ll notice your stomach growling and appreciate when you are feeling full. These are important physiological signals to pay attention to in a healthy lifestyle.
