WeightWatchers more effective than diet advice

8th September 2011

Researchers have claimed that WeightWatchers is up to three times more effective than simply taking diet advice.

An international study which followed more than 770 overweight adults over the course of a year in Britain, Germany and Australia, who were on the points-based slimming programme lost twice as many pounds as those given guidance by GPs. They were also three times more likely to lose a tenth of their body weight, which is the proportion deemed necessary to help prevent heart disease and diabetes.
