Weight Watchers claim that you can lose your weight up to 2 pounds in one week. Weight Watchers application is free if you download the basic account, but it is not free for the online version that equipped with free e-tools, this online version ($3.99) can be used to scan the product barcode and shows the per-serving points. But there are more 30,000 foods in the database. However, there are some foods cannot show up. You have to pay $19.95 per month, and after you have reached your goals, you don’t need to pay any more.
