The central component of the Weight Watchers diet is a point system wherein thousands of foods are given a point value, based on number of calories, as well as fiber and fat content. Other program components are the weekly weigh-in for members, weekly meetings with motivational talks, and supplementary materials, such as booklets with special recipes and tips for dieting. An individual following the Weight Watchers plan can eat whatever he likes, but he has to stay within the specific point range determined for him, according to his current weight and weight loss goal, among other considerations.
