Thread: Post Maintence and Weight Watchers?

    Post Maintence and Weight Watchers?

    Hello All, I was curious if any of you out there has had any success with joining weight watchers after you have completed a successful round of HCG. I was considering doing this to help keep my food in check and what not. Although I was not sure if the calorie counting with weight watchers would interfere with the calories you are supposed to eat after the VLCD are over. Any thoughts or suggestions or if anyone has done it, please reply back! Thank you!!

    I'd actually thought about doing the same thing. I've never actually done ww before but I've had a few friends that have and the concept seemed really easy to follow.
    Start Date R1/ P1: 02/16/2012
    End of loading 136.5
    Start Date R1/P2: 02/18
    As of 03/12: 123

    R1P2 D1:136.5
    Week 1: -9lbs
    Week 2: -3lbs
    Week 3: -2lbs
    stopped day 23 ended at 123

    Starting P3 and adding workouts
    Probably starting round 2 Late April

    Hi Casshawks. I was thinking about that same thing (although for me it's Jenny Craig which I'm familiar with and have already paid the annual fee for.) I won't start that until (a) I've lost all my weight (i.e., I pla to do another round of HCG once completing the six weeks inbetween round 1 and round 2) and (b) I've come off the HCG as instructed by Dr. Simeons, i.e. eating no sugar/starch for the 3 weeks, then phasing in sugar/starch for 3 weeks. This was my downfall when I did HCG a few years ago. I had great results and blew the after HCG protocol, and ultimately gained all my weight back, and then some. I'm not sure about WW, but Jenny Craig adds in sugary desserts for what they call a balanced diet (I'm good with that...smile) I am mostly wanting to join JC to teach me how to eat balanced and maintain my weight. I've not been good at that my whole life. I'm on day 36 of 40 in phase 2, lost 23 lbs, this is the first of two rounds for me. Total to lose 52 lbs, with 29lbs more to go.

    I haven't completed my round of Hcg yet but I'm a life long weight watchers lover! I keep going back to it because I love that I can eat what I want but in moderation, no depriving myself of the things I love. Its very simple, you look up the food, you track it, measure it if if needed then eat it! I started on ww about 6 years ago and had great results, losing about 35 pounds over 8-10 months with exercise but then I went to college and gained it back (no exercise, stress eating, drinking, basically stopped caring). This past October- January I went back on the program and lost 15 pounds. My goal weight is 135 so here I am on Hcg at 167 (11 pounds down from my loading weight).

    Oh yeah my mom did Jenny Craig and I did nutrisystem but once you stop eating the food, you gain the weight back unless you switch to some other type of diet (low carb, low cal, etc.)

    What I hate about WW is that it doesn't distinguish between good and bad foods, and that it is so carb heavy. Carbs are my enemy, the second I start eating them, I get cravings... And cheat.

    The fact that pasta and potatoes, for example, are all-you-can-eat foods makes no sense to me at all.... That's an insuline desaster waiting to happen, at least in my case.

    Actually, pasta and potatoes are NOT all-you-can-eat foods-only fruit and vegetables are. I did their new points plus system last year. Of course, if someone WANTS to use all their daily points for carbs, they can. However, WW does NOT recommend that.

    Well, pasta and potatoes are still all-you-can-eat, just for a rather low point value. So if you tell me "use x points for pasta and dug in"... That's what I do. Then I am full, and splurge my other points on unhealthy stuff, most of the times.

    I tried WW, but. The second I eat carbs, I have no restraint... Definitely leptin resistant. And WW doesn't address that well, imho.

    I should have learned that lesson when doing Atkins many years ago. Maybe this time it will stick when going paleo... Carbs are the enemy in my metabolism.

    I am a huge fan (was a huge fan) of WW meals. They were always filling, I found them to be delicious etc. My issue with them, and I am not sure if people will be able to correct me here (maybe it's not as big-of-an-issue) is the sodium in the meals. I was sort of instructed to be more aware of my sodium intake and found that many of those meals have such high sodium levels so I stopped having them.... Is this a valid reason not to do WW? I am a newbie but, curious.

    Julzmusic, WW meals aren't really part of the Weight Watchers plan. I don't even think the frozen meal company is owned by the diet support company although they must license their name to them. WW teaches you how to eat any type of food, because they teach portion control, calorie control, consumption of more vegetables and fiber, etc. I don't think many people on WW eat a lot of frozen meals because most dieters have found you can eat more volume with fewer Points value if you cook it yourself.

    If you are on a sodium restricted diet, you might want to avoid the higher sodium ones; I think I recall that many WW meals are lower in sodium. If you choose to avoid chemicals and processed foods, you might not want to eat them. I try to eat quite a bit of unrefined sea salt as I think it is healthy, but I also eat real food, so I avoid the processed meals, but there's no reason you have to do that. Eating habits are a personal choice.

    The only valid reason I can think of for not doing WW in P3 and P4 is that most of us need quite a bit of fat and calories, especially in P3. WW is not compatible with that. But it is a fantastic organization for support and for learning about food and nutrition. I no longer agree with much of what they teach, but I think they're the best diet corporation out there.

    You all may want to look into The Fast Metabolism Diet. Many on this board are having great success in maintaining or losing weight on it after doing HCG. You get to eat starches and lose weight!! Ask Grammy!
