The new Weight Watchers app and program is very easy to use.  However, I ran into several issues with the diet plan.  I used the Purple Diet plan, which emphasizes mostly zero point foods, high protien, and eating almost all non-fat.  This program however has a number of foods that simply do no belong on a zero points food list.  Foods such as fruit, brown rice, and wheat pasta are loaded with calories and carbohydrates.  You cannot eat tons of carbs and expect to lose weight.  I do not care how much fiber it has.  They also emphasize nonfat over low carb, which for many women in completely ineffective.  Any foods that are nonfat were valued at astronomical point values so it didn't make any sense to even eat them.  What ended up happening was I ate too protein, too many carbs, and too many calories.  I lost almost no weight after 2 months.  I also exercised hardcore daily and earned tons of additional points through fitness.  This however did not appear to help my weight loss plan.  I have used Weight Watchers in the past.  10 Years ago it was known as the FlexPoints program.  I lost almost 40 lbs using this old program.  It was based in simple Calories In and Calories Out.  I understand that the new program aims to help people make healthier choices, which is great, but simple not effective for everyone.  If you want to lose weight.  Simply download a free calorie counter app and count your calories and try to get some cardio in 3 times a week.  I would still recommend the program to a friend who needs to lose weight but it appears to work best for those whom are morbidly obese.
Pros
Easy to use
Cons
Not effective for all people
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I signed up in an hour... later I canceled it through their website cancel instructions. It didn't match with my smart watch that records all my activity and calories so it was not compatible and i did not want to use something that was not compatible. After cancelation a month ago found out  today that they will be charging me monthly until March of 2020 even though I have never used their services. If I want to 'cancel' again I have to pay them $39.99 to cancel a service that I have literally never used. I called my bank in disputed it through them but they're still a chance that I will have to pay them monthly for months of something I will never use. I have never had this problem from anything and this is the most ridiculous crap I've ever had to put up with. The woman that I talk to you was rude and very unhelpful.
Cons
Wont let you cancel
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I think your computer system is horrible.  It used to be the people at our meeting signed me up every 2 months for the free digital voucher. Several months ago I was told I needed to do myself.  Then the customer service # would input the access code for me.  Several months ago I was told they couldn't do this anymore.  I have tried to do myself for months to no avail.  The computer is always down and wont work.  I spend hours on this and after calling in they finally can walk me thru it.  This also takes a lot of time.  It is really difficult to understand the English of many of your employees.  You really need to get all of this corrected, it is a real tarnish on your organization.
Pros
Like the point system
Cons
Didn"t like our wkly meeting leaders
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I am going to start out by saying WOW I am way amazed by this coach she LITERALLY has gone way OVER AND BEYOND what she should because she is one who truly shows that she cares by asking me how I am doing and what she can do to help me with and what she can do to be a better encouragement to me.!!! She really has wanted to get to know me personally and how I worked and what I love to do and what not she is way super supportive and sweet and Loving like I have not really experienced better then her since I have Been with WW for about 3 months and I have tried others and I have never felt the connection that I have this lady she is amazingly awesome at what she does and truly is respectful and helps me to make reasonable goals that I can maintain long term verses short term which I love it because I forget always and she is one of a kind of WW coach  because she not only says she cares but proves it to Thanks lady you are SO MUCH APPRECIATED BY ME
