Weight Watchers has been around for as long as many of us can remember. It’s a company that offers various products and services to assist weight loss and maintenance. People either love the program or they hate it.
One of the reasons why Weight Watchers has lasted as long as it has is because people are fascinated by their before and after photos. People love to hear about weight loss success stories and of course, see the results with their very own eyes. The company is one of the largest commercial providers of weight management services in the world. In 2016, it had approximately 1.2 million active members. I’ve personally never used the program but I do have family members who have. From what I know, they’ve always been happy with their results.
Unfortunately, Weight Watchers is stirring up a little controversy with their latest plan and target audience. According to reports, a controversial free Weight Watchers scheme for teenagers sends a “negative message” according to parents and critics. They believe it could lead to them becoming “fixated” with dieting. But at the same time, obesity is becoming a huge problem in our country, too.
