Weight Watchers has long been a household name. For decades, the program has promised to help individuals shed those extra pounds through its unique points system and support network. However, recent years have seen a decline in the popularity and effectiveness of Weight Watchers.
With its flawed points system, it is becoming restrictive for many. And with its heavy reliance on calorie counting, it has led many to struggle to sustain long-term weight loss.
In this episode, we will delve into the reasons behind Weight Watchers' failure and explore a more holistic approach that focuses on the real issues deep down and addresses the overall health and well-being rather than just numbers on a scale.
"If you've just been listening to your doctors and the social media into the latest plans and fads and you're just trying to follow a blueprint, it's never going to work long-term. You are going to continue dieting for the rest of your life. And if that's okay with you, that's fine. But if you're in a space where you're like, I don't wanna do this anymore and I don't wanna die for the rest of my life and I wanna be able to just have freedom in this area, then we got to undo it. You got to do the foundational work and then you can support yourself and you'll naturally start making empowered choices." - Leslie Thornton
