NEW YORK – Fruit is free under the latest Weight Watchers plan.
The weight-loss giant is replacing its Points plan with a new system called PointsPlus.
Fresh fruits and most vegetables are zero points. Dried fruits and starchy vegetables such as potatoes and corn still have points assigned to them.
The new system was unveiled Monday. Weight Watchers says it will help dieters realize that a 100-calorie apple is a better choice than a 100-calorie bag of chips.
The chief scientific officer of Weight Watchers International Inc. says the program is based on the latest scientific research. Karen Miller-Kovach (KOH'-vach) says it's designed to guide people toward healthy and satisfying foods.
THIS IS INSANE. This makes no biochemical sense whatsoever.
An apple is not better for you than chips. They are both carbohydrates. They stimulate insulin production which STIMULATES FAT STORAGE. Neither one is very good if you want to lose weight. And the fructose in the apple is actually metabolically inferior to glucose.
Please see the fructose video I referenced earlier.
THESE PEOPLE CLAIM TO BE NUTRITION AND WEIGHT LOSS EXPERTS.
Their only thing their diet does is guarantee you will fail.
Maybe even faster with their " new, improved" nonsense...
