WeightWatchers knows diabetes

“Despite recent advancements, there continues to be gaps in diabetes management for over 37 million people in the U.S. living with diabetes—most of whom also have obesity.† Trial results show that the WeightWatchers Diabetes-Tailored Plan produces favorable improvements in weight loss, glycemic control, and diabetes distress.

—John W. Apolzan, Ph.D., an associate professor and nutrition scientist at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and the lead investigator in a six-month multicenter clinical trial
