Written By: Ehsan Jahandarpour

Weight Watchers International is an international company based in the United States that offers various products and services to assist weight loss and maintenance. Founded in 1963 by Brooklyn, New York, homemaker Jean Nidetch, it operates in about 30 countries around the world, generally under names that are local translations of “Weight Watchers”. The core philosophy behind Weight Watchers programs is to use a science-driven approach to help participants lose weight by forming helpful habits, eating smarter, getting more exercise and providing support. The term weight-watcher, in the same sense, had circulated publicly for several years before the company was formed.
