Yeah, Weight Watchers sucks. I overheard several middle-aged women in the locker room at my gym discussing it the other day. They all had weight problems, and I just felt so bad for them! They were all complaining about how a bagel is 3 points now instead of 1, and how they had to change their entire meal plan for the week just so they could eat a bagel without going over their points. I don't really know what the caloric equivalent of a weight watchers point is, but I'm guessing that if they replaced their bagels with a starchy vegetable or a satiating whole food, they'd be a lot better off! I wanted to tell them that it didn't have to be that way, and that Weight Watchers is such a big company because it's geared toward making money, not making people healthy.
Also, I heard that WW doesn't count raw vegetables as anything? So, you could eat like 5lbs of raw carrots without counting them toward anything.... that doesn't make sense! Is that true? *smh*
