    Yep, they still sell what's called the Complete Food Companion, which has most foods you would need to know. There's also the Dining Out Companion for many popular restaurants (and if your restaurant isn't in there, there's usually something close enough so you can estimate). The points have changed on a lot of things, but usually within a point or two either way, so you'd be surprised how quickly the you adapt to the new points values. Keep asking questions! I'm happy to help!

    There are paper trackers in all the meeting rooms - you can take as many as you want! There are also 3 month journals where you can track for three months at a time. WW now sells a calculator to figure out the points of foods because the sliders don't work anymore. The new plan counts fat, fiber, protein and carbs, and four things to count was more than the slider could handle. You can also use your smartphone as a calculator if you have eTools. Let me know if you have any other questions! Erin

    Hello! I have been with Weight Watchers since 2008 and lost 65 pounds. Most of that was before having to give up gluten, but since I have given it up, I've found it's still doable. Unfortunately, the gluten-free versions of some of the foods I love (like bread and bagels) have been higher points values than their gluten-full varieties, but we all make choices! However, I'm here to tell you that you can still lose weight after having to give up gluten and dairy. Good luck to both of you! Feel free to email if you need support! UCSD90
