    Channel 4 28th 8pm How Weight Watchers make their millions.

    Jane Moore investigates the UK's largest diet brand, talking to food experts, consumers and scientists to assess just how effective the company's weight-loss plans and products really are - and whether they provide value for money

    Been maintaining under 9 stone on a Primal diet since Oct 2012.
    Commitment and hard work gets you there.
    You can 'diet' and still have a life if you really,really want to.

    Your weight is not going up for no reason. It's going up because you consume more than you burn.

    Learn to say 'NO' as Xmas is getting closer.

    "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food."

    99days until Xmas.

    Lots of people have come to WWs defence. I never had the money to go to meetings and as I know a few people who lost weight through them but gained all and more weight back I was never tempted to join them.

    Hold on a sec. If you judge WW then you have to judge CWP. All companies are there to make money, weight loss companies are scams only if YOU put on back the weight. Otherwise, they are life-changing businesses!

    Yes and ofcourse SW and cd etc are in it purely for the benefit of members.

    All diet companies are ultimately it for the money not to do us a favour

    Very interesting thread. Of course the weight loss companies are making money, but the consumer has a choice, to purchase or not & if they do purchase & achieve their goal it's money well spent, whether the weight goes back on or not, that person will have felt so much better & pleased with themselves for losing weight. So it's not just about the product it's also about the effect it has on the consumer, IMO
