NEW YORK, NY – October 3, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Social Media Medicine Expert and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website that applauds the positive results that weight loss program, Weight Watchers, has shown over primary care treatment. Dr. Veronica speaks from personal experience when she argues that Weight Watchers really gets results, in her blog titled “Dr. Veronica Weighs-In About Weight Watchers.”

Dr. Anderson writes, “Weight Watchers: another diet fad program… or a system that’s really worth something? My opinion is the latter of the two. I think it is a solid program that teaches people when diligent how to read food labels to pick the right foods to add and subtract from their eating plans. Personally, I think Weight Watchers works great for lots of folks. I can speak from personal experience on this – I have used the Weight Watchers program successfully, myself.”

“According to a report by MedPage Today, overweight people who invested time and money in joining Weight Watchers showed significant improvements in their disease risk factors like blood lipids and insulin sensitivity. … Birmingham doctors quoted in the article even stated that this proves that commercial weight loss care has proven to be more effective than primary care management, which is funded by our taxes and healthcare.” explains Dr. Anderson.
