Four Popular Weight Loss Programs
Choosing from the dozens of weight loss programs that are available is similar to finding your way through a maze. Weight loss is an experience that is going to be different for each person. The program that works for one person may not be a good fit for another. Choosing a program that has stood the test of time and has thousands of success stories is a great place to start. Four of these programs include Herbalife, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, and Medifast. Familiarizing yourself with each of these programs will help you make a decision about which weight loss program will be best for your body, and ultimately your weight loss success.
Herbalife began in the weight loss and nutrition industry in 1980. It was the vision of a young man named Mark Hughes who had seen his mother damage her health and then eventually die from abusing weight loss products. He swore there must be a way for people to control their weight and be healthy without the use of drugs and medication. The system is based on replacing meals with healthy, nutitious 'shakes' and supplements that allows low calorie and fat intake while still giving full nutrition. Herbalife is now in over 80 countries and the largest weight loss company in the world. Its products are supplied through Independent Herbalife Distributors who then give personal followup and support on the use of their prodcuts.
Weight Watchers was first started in 1963. It began as a small support system for women looking to lose weight. The foundation of the Weight Watchers program is learning to eat food in real life through portion control. As a member of Weight Watchers you will attend a weekly meeting where you will weigh in and receive support and accountability as well as education on the topic of weight loss. Weight Watchers uses a system for keeping track of calories called the “Points” system. This system takes into account a food's calories, fat grams, and fiber.
Jenny Craig was founded in 1983, and has remained a leader in weight loss programs. This program relies on packaged meals to teach about weight loss, as well as teaching the client to integrate exercise into their day.
They claim a “food, body, mind” approach to weight loss. You will also have access to your own weight loss consultant. Jenny Craig boasts many celebrity clients including Jason Alexander, Natalie Bertinelli, and Sarah Rue.
Medifast was founded in 1980 and remains a favorite program amongst doctors because of their extensive clinical research. Medifast, like Jenny Craig relies on pre-packaged meals and meal substitutes.
On the Medifast program you eat or drink 5 meal substitutes and then you eat one calorie controlled meal of your choosing. Medifast has nine clinical studies as well as the results of those studies available on their website.
When choosing from the myriad of weight loss programs available it is important to go with a time proven, healthy system.
