Default Weight Watchers

This isn't about Weight Watchers, per se, but about the alteration in it, if there was one, since I have no idea what the current plan is in relation to the older one.

So, if there is, has been a shift from protein to more carb, it begs the question as to why it was altered?

I'm posting this mostly for interest/intrigue not for the concept of diet/fad diets etc which I don't happen to agree with anyway.


The Weight Watchers Diet in the 1970s: No Exercise Required

I was on the old Weight Watchers plan in 1974. It was more protein based than the carb based one now.

Most of those blanket diet programs are a farce. I remember my MIL was on it a while back and it was protein heavy and they finally said fruit was bad for weight loss. So it sounds like they may be coming to their senses. Unless they changed again in the past 5 or so years.
