Weight Watchers eTools help you track your daily intake of food and drink and see how well you are following through with your diet and exercise goals. It’s an easy way of tracking your food intake and the corresponding points.
They have tools for representing your progress on graphs, so you can actually see the path that your weight is taking. You can see how sharply the line is sloping downwards, and how fast you are achieving your goals. You can see what you’ve achieved over the past few weeks, and where you stand now.
The online tracking system also allows you to keep track of what you are eating during the day, how many points it adds up to, and how many points still remain in your day’s quota. What that means is that you know if you have exceeded your recommended food intake at lunch, so you can make up for it right away by keeping dinner light.
They also offer you a number of recipe ideas online, which you can try out for yourself. You can learn how to make your favourite recipes healthier. You also learn tips and tricks for eating out and takeaways that don’t ruin your eating plan.
Tracking your progress on a daily, even hourly basis helps you get a closer look at how much you are actually eating and how much activity you are performing. It helps you see if you have overeaten at one meal, so you can compensate for it immediately, at the very next meal. It gives you an exact, bite by bite account of what you ate and drank all day.
The Weight Watchers eTools are also available on your mobile, which means that you can keep track of your dietary intake even when you are not sitting in front of a computer. This is a very useful feature for people with jobs that keep them on the go, like real estate agents or event planners.
The eTools feature provides you an added amount of accountability over the weekly weight check that you do when you go to meetings. It’s what keeps you in check all through the week, so you make healthier eating choices all through, not just when you know that you are going to be stepping on the weighing scales the next day. It helps you account for even the cookie that you had when you needed an impromptu snack, not just the slice of chocolate cake you ate when you went out for your friend’s birthday party.
