Anyone else try Weight Watchers while being Vegetarian. For the most part i'm just not motivated to do it in the first place. Any good tips?

My tip is, if you're not motivated to do it then don't waste your money. The program won't work unless you really <i>want</i> to work the program. That said, it's very easy to do Weight Watchers as a vegetarian, or even vegan. I'm not that familiar with the Core plan they have now, but the Flexible Points plan is simple as a veg.

A friend of mine did weight watchers as a vegetarian and lost 40 lbs. She had been in denial about her weight for years, and finally, a doctor told her that she needed to lose weight. You NEED to be motivated - you won't lose weight just by swiping a credit card. The program works, but only if YOU work.

I'm doing the Core program being lacto-ovo vegetarian. I think it would be hard to do the Core program as a vegan, because you would have more limited choices.<br><br><br><br>
The Flex plan however is completely adaptable to being veg*n. You can figure out the points for <i>any</i> food.

I am doing WW counting the points and I am a vegetarian. I have lost 37lbs so far. So it works, only if you are ready to stick to a life changing way of eating.

Well, you guys are very motivating. Husband and I need to lose about 30-40 pounds each, and we have considered doing a WW at home thing. Personally, I think going to meetings would work much better for me, because I probably would enjoy the structure, information and support of others. I'll see what is in the area.

Weight watchers is just a system used to count calories. If you are competent enough to count calories on your own then WW is a waste of money. Save it to buy the food that will make your low calorie diet tasty, or to treat yourself to a night out that is fun.

Also, I hear you can buy their little points calculator for $4 and skip the rest if you want. I think you can also buy writtenmaterials like the food points guide separately. So if all you want is a shortcut to make counting your calories easier, you don't have to buy into all the meetings and stuff.

The most important part of Weight Watchers isn't the system to count calories, it is the support and accountability of the group. Some people do much better when they have the motivation of those weekly weigh-ins, and for those people, it's not a waste of money. It is certainly possible to do all that on your own, including finding exercise and dieting buddies, but some folks are willing to pay for the convenience of having a ready-made support group.

My tip would be don't waste your time with weight watchers, go to Herbalife, they have all the nutrients and vitamins you need, and they have vitamins for vegetarians. I lost 20 pounds already and I feel great! If you want more info,contact me!

Uhh...weight watchers isn't about vitamins. It's about food and your intake of food, as well as having the support structure.<br><br><br><br>
But nice advertisement. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

I've done weight watchers in the past when I let my eating get out of control. It worked. I lost about 20 pounds on it. When I see the number going up on the scale I'll count pounts for a a couple of weeks to get back on track. I just bought a point calculator online and didn't offically join. For some reason I have trouble keeping track of calories but plugging numbers into a little point calculator will keep me on track. I guess it is a mental thing for me.<br><br><br><br>
My husband is currently sticking with their core way of eating and it is working out very well for him. He is omni so he has pleanty of choices. He has already lost about 30 pounds and he still has 40 pounds to go. He has been very happy eating the core way and I don't even really need to watch to make sure he stays on track anymore. I did join online for one month just so I could get a list of the core foods for him to eat. I got rid of the membership after that month.
