Weight Watchers is in the news again with a new name and a new attitude. See here. They’ve added mindful eating and meditation, broadening their focus from weight loss. (But still charging people for weekly weigh-ins.)
“We will never abdicate our leadership in the best healthy eating program for weight loss in the world, but we can be so much more today,” the company’s president and chief executive, Mindy Grossman, said Monday on TODAY. “We can inspire people for healthy habits, to help them eat better, move better, use their mind to help support their efforts and really be about total wellness.”
I blogged about the company some years ago. And I still think they take advantage of vulnerable people and sell a bill of goods that can’t make good on.
