@thesquarebit, I’ve done WW in the past (with my wife) and it has been successful (while I did it). Think about it. It’s a calorie controlled diet with a different way of counting calories. Despite all the “complex” formula surrounding points values, essentially the more calories, the more the points value. with a bit of additional complexity to “add value” ie charge for it.
I actually found once you get into a routine of knowing the points value of what you eat regularly it was fairly easy, but I guess counting calories is the same. In the end I got bored of logging everything so I don’t do it. The recipe books can be good and they can teach portion control etc, but again, it’s nothing you can’t get cheaper elsewhere.
The tracking app, which is what we essentially paid for (I never did a meeting) is garbage. I haven’t used my fitness pal etc but it seems everyone on here who counts uses and likes that
In summary, save your money. I get more from this site than I’d ever get from a WW group and the forum here is way better, and if you want to count, count calories and use a free app.
Plus it’s for girls…
