Weight Watchers is a lifestyle option that gives us parameters for choosing healthy foods, but doesn't restrict us so much like other ways of eating might. With Paleo, you can't eat bread, you can't eat (good) chocolate, you can't have a soda. With Weight Watchers, you can eat anything with moderation. I love that because I'm terrible at restricting certain food groups. If I can just have a 1/2 cup of ice cream, it will help me stay on track for another week.
