First, the book starts out talking about the core principles of Weight Watchers.

Slow and Steady Diet
Not only is it better for you the body to lose weight slowly, it also cements solid eating habits and forces an individual to stick to those eating habits. Shaping the mind to adjust to its new lifestyle is just as important as shaping the body.

Motivate Others To Share Your Lifestyle
Households need to work together. It needs to be a shared goal. Your lifestyle choice should not be hidden from those you live with as it will make sticking with such a dramatic change much more difficult.

Do Not Let Mistakes Get You On The Weight Gain Wagon
Accidents happen, but do not let it turn into a binge. A bad week where someone got off their diet can be turned around just by sharing their experience...Thus, Weight Watchers meetings.

SmartPoints are the latest points system of food one may allot themself each day. The book explains that the calculations are made using the following:

Step 1: What Is Your Gender?

Females: 2 points.
Males: 8 points.
Nursing Mothers: 12 points.

Step 2: How Old Are You?

17-26: 4 points.
27-37: 3 points.
38-47: 2 points.
48-58: 1 point.
Over 58: 0 point.

Step 3: What Is Your Weight?

Take the first two digits of your weight.
For example, 160 pounds = 16 points.

Step 4: How Tall Are You?

Under 5' 1: 0 points.
5' 1 - 5' 10: 1 point.
Over 5' 10: 2 points.

Step 5: How Do You Spend Most Of Your Day?

Sitting Down: 0 points.
Occasionally Sitting: 2 points.
Walking Most Of The Day: 4 points.

The rest of the book is a 31 day meal plan that is mostly easy to make, from making breakfast for yourself using a large coffee mug in the microwave, to lunch using a slow cooker and to other recipes needing no cooking at all, such as tuna salad and wraps. The SmartPoints for the recipes are already calculated for you and are extremely low per serving.

This book now has me started on a Weight Watchers kick! I have always thought that Weight Watchers was too hard for me until I read this book. Over the years, I have picked up Weight Watchers' cookbooks at yard sales and never took interest. Well, now I will be studying them and teaching myself. I may not have the money to be an official member of Weight Watchers, but who said I cannot teach myself?

A total thumbs up!
