We’re #1 (Again!)

Weight Watchers came out on top in four categories in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of the most popular diet plans.

We’re excited to report that Weight Watchers has earned the top spot in four categories in U.S. News & World Report’s annual assessment of the country’s most effective diets: Best Weight-Loss Diet, Best Commercial Plan — each for the seventh consecutive year — as well as Easiest Plan to Follow, which we’ve been awarded annually since the category was added six years ago. Also, for the first time, we’re ranked #1 for Fast Weight-Loss Diet!

Weight Watchers also earned high marks in several sub-categories:

 - Short-term weight loss: 4.3 out of 5 stars

 - Long-Term Weight Loss: 3.7 out of 5 stars

 - Nutrition: 4.4 stars out of 5

- Safety: 4.5 stars out of 5

This is the first year that Weight Watchers was evaluated based on our Beyond the Scale program, which inspires and guides members to eat better, move more, and shift their mindset. Research has shown that people following Beyond the Scale lost 15% more weight in the first two months than those who used our previous program.

The bottom line? Weight Watchers remains one of the most highly-rated and widely-praised plans for effective, sustainable weight loss and long-term health.
