Does anyone know how many pounds you can lose on the 1st week of this diet (cos it generally slows in subsequent weeks, yes?) if you follow it religiously and exercise ur ass off (literally!)*. Or if anyone's done it before and had any experiences they'd like to share...... Ta

*I'm within healthy BMI for my height but nearer the overweight end than the underweight end.

It worked pretty well for me. I lost about 1.5 Kg the first week and I really don't exercise.

fad diets are crap

But it's not! The calories are enough so that your metabolism doesn't slow cos ur body thinks ur starving it...its encourages u to control ur portion sizes...it encourages u to eat a balanced diet (lots of fruit, veg, water, calcium protein)...encourages exercise...no food groups are banned...and its been around for years. So hows it a fad diet?!

weight watchers is a fad diet just like atkins, zone, etc. you think a diet has to discourage exercise and disallow lots of foods to become a fad diet? it is one of the better ones though, which doesnt say much for it. wanna know the best way of losing weight? just eating healthily and exercising regually. dont waste your time, money and effort.

Thing is, that's too vague. Putting restrictions allows people to know what to avoid and what is good for them.
Different things work for different people.

Losing weight that fast is bad anyway - it will go straight back on when you fall off the wagon, ever notice how nobody is healthy at weight watchers and they have been members for years? I agree with bis for once, you need a life style change not a bs fad diet.

putting restrictions to see whats good for them? people should know whats bad and whats good anyway. there is such a thing as common sense, although it is far from common these days.

Yeh, I know what's good for me, I just don't eat it. Mainly because I don't see the point in eating only healthy foods.

well, we're all entitled to our own opinions, but you only need to pick up a copy of their WW magazine and flick thru it to see how many people have lost astounding amounts on it. my mum did it a few years back and went from a size 18 to a size 12 and has kept the weight off, too. the only reason i posted this was to find out wat u can expect in 1st wk...cos she doesnt remember! nevamind...

I said ONLY healthy food.
I do eat some normal food and some crap food.
You're the one who's severely retarded if you can't even read.

I think they are a bit rubbish if youre just trying to loose a small amount. i think that if you are really overweight, then they are good. but if you just want to loose a small amount, make sure you eat well, and get exercise. swap crisps and chocolate for dried fruit and normal fruit. even tinned fruit is probably better than a bar of chocolate. have semi-skimmed or skimmed milk instead of whole fat milk. if you have cream in your coffee, stop. i find that if i try these fad diets, i always end up eating what im not meant to! whereas if i just try and eat healthy, i dont snack as much.

WW magazine? i dont even know what that is. do you really believe everything a gossip magazine tells you? they aint gonna show people put on weight while trying to promote something. its probably the female equivilent to mens health magazine. ever read the articles in that? like "get an 8 pack in 1 week without exercising". jeez people are too gullible these days too.

how can people estimate how much weight you will lose when we know nothing about you?

anyway, sorry if this comes off sounding harsh, i always seem to do that. just trying to save you from wasting time, money and effort.

I'm not sure, any 1 feel free to correct me but if you stay strict with yourself perhaps 3-5 £'s in your first week? then it will gradually drop after a while. Weight watchers will probably ruin your life though, just be sensible in what you eat and do your excercising and you will save money and be happier.

Didnt make that v clear, it's Weight Watchers magazine, Im not somebody who'd ever read somehting like closer/now or whatever, got better things to do with my time. Ive posted my details a few posts above this one.
And, also, it's not gonna cost me zzs every wk cos ive bought the points guides.
