When I can’t sleep I watch infomercials. It’s a habit and I usually get a good laugh at what the product is doing or promising. It’s always something revolutionary that’s going to change your life as you know it. I especially love the ones about dieting. I think I’m most drawn to these because I’ve lost over 60 pounds with Weight Watchers and I know that I couldn’t have found my success with a pill or a juice drink. (People following the Weight Watchers plan can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.) I’ve watched a number of these infomercials and I noticed something similar – they were all geared toward women; each one was talking about sexy hourglass figures or fitting into “that little black dress” or pair of jeans. Now, I know that these diets don’t work, but it occurred to me that men were being left out of the equation. Do these fad diet companies not understand that men want to be healthy and fit too? Well probably not. Of course, Weight Watchers has solved that.
Weight Watchers for Men Review
I’ve said it before and it’s worth repeating. If I hadn’t been able to fit an eating plan into my life, I wouldn’t stick to it. Customizability is the name of the game. It is also the reason that men will have success using Weight Watchers.
Men Want to Lose Weight, Too
Men want to lose weight. They want to have good health and a fit body. This is not a dainty diet of salads with no dressing. It is not the end of fun times with friends at your favorite bars and restaurants. It’s a way to manage what you eat and drink, add some activities that will increase your fitness and build muscles, and to look and feel better. There are a few things to know:

It’s Fast and Convenient

Enter information into the tracker – what you’re eating, what activities or workouts you’ve done, and your weight. It’s amazing to always be able to access your tracker and literally see your daily success. You’ll be inspired and it might ignite your competitive streak with your friends. They’ll definitely notice and want to know how you are achieving your results.
It’s Customized to You
Are you a foodie who loves to try new things – whether cooking at home or trying the newest local restaurant? Are you the grillmaster at home? Do you prefer to eat fast food most days? It doesn’t matter, the tools and resources work the same way no matter what you love to eat. That’s truly the beauty of the plan. You are in charge. You make the best choices for you. Stick to your points and you’ll succeed. Maybe you don’t love to work out or maybe you just haven’t found something that you like to do. There are a ton of work out options and demo videos for you to check out. Gone are the days of hundreds of crunches (that don’t work!). They have been replaced with workouts designed by fitness experts who know how to achieve the best results.
One of the perks of adding fitness activities to your day is that you get a few extra points to use. Depending on the type of activity and the duration you do it, you can add points to your week to use when you want to use them. If you’re planning a fun Friday night and want to be able to indulge a little more than usual, add some workouts to your week and live it up on Friday! When you view your tracker, the activity points are right on the top so you’ll be able to see how your hard work is paying off.
Change the way you think about food, health, and fitness. There is nothing stopping you from losing like a man!
