Here’s how they work
For Weight Watchers, it’s about controlling portions through
a daily point allotment. For Atkins and South Beach, it’s about eating fewer
carbs. Other diets have you eating more fiber or watching fat intake. But no
matter how fancy the diet or involved the program, what it all boils down to is
eating fewer calories.
Who needs a one-size-fits-all diet plan when you can do it
yourself? We’re not saying some people don’t find diet plans helpful, but it’s
really about cutting out high-calorie habits. So think about where you can
scale back. Lots of sodas and juice drinks are loaded with calories. Same with
fast foods. Serving yourself a mondo portion packs calories. Do you only eat
fruit once a week? Do you add extra cheese or butter to everything? Instead of
following a rigid plan, substitute an unhealthful habit for a better one. Stick
to water and skim milk. If you always eat cookies and candy, go for nuts and
fruit instead. Eat smaller portions, and add veggies.

I don't know if teens need to take diets. You can eat healthy and exercise without a diet.

Also, the statement 'eat smaller portions' depending on the person, is not always the best advice. I DO agree though, that we should eat more veggies! In fact, half of your meal (I'm pretty sure ) should be fruits and vegetables!

I understand that teens shouldn't really use Weight Watchers but the article kinda made it sound like it was a fake diet. I have known many people on this diet (all for health reasons) and it has helped them greatly. It doesn't keep you from eating AS MUCH as you want, it just keeps you eating healthier foods. Also, depending on what you're acually eating, you may be able to eat A BUNCH of it. It's not starving yourself or keeping you from your favorite foods, it just keeps you aware of healthy portions, even for sweets. It's a lot of work and isn't designed for teens, but is acually a much healthier way of eating. Also, each person's account is different. It's NOT one-size-fits-all. i understand thet teens should not be going on this diet, but I wish the author of this article was better researched. THIS IS NOT A BAD DIET, it's just not for younger people.
