Weight watchers is celebrating five decades with weight loss FOR THE NEW WEIGHT WATCHERS 50s Anniversary cookbook that takes hundreds of classic recipes we've loved but gives them a leaner more modern makeover. Here to show us some of the makeovers is liz. I have sampled, I must admit, so delicious. Yes. The numbers don't lie. U.S. News & world report ranked weight watchers the number one diet. We've seen it work on jennifer hudson and now here we go, will it work for every family. Right, I love it. We're 50 years old and that says something about our staying power. Yep. We're starting off with some wonderful, amazing chicken southern style chicken and dumplings. Chicken and dumpling soup, one of the ultimate comfort foods. The original version has a lot of calories in it. You have managed to shave off a lot of those calories. I'll wing it. Your version has 277 calories, 5 grams of fat and 7 points. Right, so the beauty of this we've eliminated the butter. We've loaded it up with vegetables and made those dumplings just a little smaller. How do you make it taste so good without the butter. The "b" word tastes so good. You get the flavor from chicken. You can do it with a rotisserie chicken you buy at the store. Doesn't have to take a lot of time. You can make it in 12 minutes and assemble it quickly. My kids love it too. I want to show we do have to go. We don't have time but have to mention this incredible ziti. Traditional costs 450 calories. Takes up 450 calories, 24 grams of fat. Your version and I do have to go after this, we'll give you all details online, 345 calories, just 8 grams of fat and this is just an example of the many, many recipes in the weight watchers cookbook. Happy 50th anniversary. Thank you.
