That's ridiculous - just an excuse for their terrible new WW campign. WELLNESS is great but Oprah iis not a good example of a successful weight loss program. She is terribly over weight. And she doesn't represent 'wellness' to me either.

Here we go again today talking about another woman and her weight. This has nothing to do with their problems. It is eazy to point fingers at another person sitting behind a computer, and we wonder why the children act this way. I usually just look at some of the bashing of the hosts and others that some of you talk about and wonder do you ever think that people feel the same about you no matter what you look like.

WW has been in trouble for years. That's why Oprah got involved. They thought her investment and influence could turn it around. People want simplicity in a diet plan. Dieting is not fun. WW might work, but it seems complicated with the point system. Prepared meal programs like Nutrisystem, Jenny Craig, and South Beach take the hassle of food prep and portioning out of the equation, and it's delivered to you. Keto makes it simple by eliminating most carbs, like Atkins. Oprah is not as popular as she thinks she is. And yes, her size is not the best advertisement for a diet program. WW can't blame the latest diet craze for their long term ongoing problems.

@OnefinedayNo idea exactly what causes WW's problems - points did it for me, but I lost 55 pounds in recent years using an older WW eating plan. I won't use any "unbalanced" eating style, not voluntarily anyway.
KETO would send me to the operating table in, maybe 6 months! It's not for everyone, but nothing is.

If you follow business news and I do with a passion....
The business community considers WW a frozen food company with a pricey diet program backing it.
Agreed, no one program works for everyone.

This thread is piggy backing off of a thread which started in Community Chat. Sounds like the OP really wants to talk about Oprah Winfrey's weight problem.
She also started another thread about Oprah as not a good "face of WW" a few weeks ago. I agree with you. It's not about WW it's about Oprah.

I have a friend who was on WW for years and was happy with it. She quit after Oprah came on and they changed their points system around. I think it might have cut way back on fruit because I know she realy likes fruit. Now, personally, I would agree with the cutting back on fruit because of the sugar content, but what I really didn't understand was, if she liked the old program and knew how it worked, why didn't she just stick with that instead of quitting altogether?

KETO is the most ridiculous thing on Earth.
It’s sexy & flashy marketing takes even the most sensible
person, who would be logically going to WW to lose weight & change
permanent lifestyle, and throws all common sense out the window.
Don’t worry WW....all those KETO people will be knocking on your
door in due time.
