I don’t know about you but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I have tried quite a few different ways to lose weight. From a cabbage soup diet, to a nasty lemonade-maple syrup mixture that Beyonce made famous, I have tried it all. However, in trying to diet and exercise my weight has fluctuated like many people who struggle with weight loss/management. So, in true JANE fashion I thought I would look into the most popular programs that appear to have worked successfully for people. Check them out below.
Weight Watchers: One of the world’s most popular weight loss companies, Weight Watchers has helped millions achieve their weight-loss goals through a points system that allows participants to know how much to eat by assigning points to food items.
