    "Slimming company Weight Watchers has done a deal with the fast food chain McDonald's to endorse some items on its menu.

    McDonald's branches were now offering three meals that each added up to 6.5 Weight Watchers' points."

    On the one hand, it's troubling the Weight Watchers is "promoting" McDonald's food. Aside from it being basically unhealthy, it's kind of a gateway to soda and other add-ons that are really fattening. On the other hand, people are going to eat McDonald's and if WW can steer them to better choices, maybe that's a good thing.

    Disclaimer: I'm currently on WW and have lost about 12 lbs in the past 8 weeks, so it definitely works.

    It's part of their new campaign to show members they can eat out and stay on program. At my first meeting back we did an exercise where we created 10 point meals using different chain restaurants.

    well at least it's a very convenient way for someone to access a relatively healthy lunch.

    Either McDonalds gave them money to shut them up, or someone is sucking someone else's dick on the other side hardcore.

    As I said, WW is trying to show members they can eat out and stick to the program. I don't think oral sex was involved.
