I did Jenny Craig and got gallstones and gained all the weight back.

My friend did the same thing on Nutrisystem.

WW is the only thing that really works IMHOChat Icon

Even though not a choice, I have to second WW....

The only thing that worked for me- I lost 25 pounds. My mom lost 30,my SIL lost 27......

What I LOVE about WW is that you DON'T ever have to use their foods/products. You can easily do the program with the the foods that you use/like...

WW is a way of life. That's why it is ultimately the BEST. While you may not see results immediately, once your metabolism gets use to this kind of eating and nutrition, the weight then comes off quickly. Whats great about it is that WW is really foods you already have in your home/life.

I loved WW, the only thing that kept the weight off.

Exactly what I was going to say. WW is amazing because it teaches you the right and wrong ways to eat and a lot about portion control.

Also, even when you aren't "on" WW you can still keep track of what you are eating to eat healthly. And you will lose weight in a healthy manner, slowly.

I lost 30lbs on LA Weight Loss and was able to keep it off for a very long time. I started to have problems because the more weight I lost, the less food they thought I needed. For example, I went from being able to have an 8 oz chicken breast as one of my 2 "proteins" for the day to only being able to have 3 oz of chicken breast.

It's expensive though - I think the initial price for the program and their supplements/bulk LA Lites (nutrtional bars) was almost $1000! I would caution against buying their supplements (which really didn't work) and don't buy their LA Lites in bulk (I got so sick of them after awhile that it would have been smarter to just buy them as I went. I've also heard that Luna bars are about the nutritional equivalent of the LA Lites.

I do think WW is better than any of the programs mentioned in the post, but It depends on which WW program you're doing. The problem with the points system is that it allows you to save up your daily allowance of points to eat them all in one sitting, so the concept of portion control goes out the window.

Body For Life is by far the best plan I've ever done.

WW....

They don't pressure you to buy food and like Nancy said it is a way of life! I can cook from the WW cookbook or use WW foods that are from the supermarket

I was on LA Fitnesss and did NOT like it...they made me feel horrible when I gained weight and lectured me...I always felt pressure to buy things...I only was on it for 2-3 weeks and had such a poor experience I made them give me a refund!

That is not true about WW anymore..you get a set amount of points for the week and then flex points to use as you choose throughout the week...no more saving...also they tel you that by not using the flex points you can lose more...they have revamped the program and recently revamped it again with a new poiints system for each person

WW and Jenny Craig are both great
WW is more of a total lifestyle change that I think you can live with a lot longer than the others

I do WW.. Lost 35 pounds so far. I have a problem with portions. With WW you can still have your pizza and ice cream they teach how to eat it how much etc.

Weight Watchers is the best! I lost 35 pounds a few years ago and kept it off. I like WW because I can eat whatever I want. Also, i don't like to eat frozen foods all the time, I don't think they are good for you.

Good Luck!

Re: Repost from D&F: Jenny Craig, LA Weight Loss or Nutrisystem?

i've tried WW twice and failed both times. i couldn't figure out portions and i eat really weird foods that i couldn't figure out the points to.

i've been on JC for three months now and lost 16 pounds. the last 3 weeks i've been slacking (mainly because you and i aren't walking mrs. patticakes!! Chat Icon ) but i need to get back on track. it's working for me while WW never did.

i'm actually ready to join for a year on saturday. if i join with someone else, we can split the fee....so if anyone's interested, let me know!
