I was interested in the materials but not the meetings. When I went to the WW web page I noticed something called "Weight Watchers at Home".

They sold me a whole package of stuff for a lot of money, so I can tell you about all of the different booklets (I didn't realize I could go to a meeting and get the pointfinder there. But now I do :-)

The at home package is only available in some areas.

-Point Finder (already been mentioned)

-I got an "at home guidebook". This is a slim book with pointers on how to use the other books.

-Book 1: about starting the program. This is supposed to be good for 12 weeks or until you reach the 10% goal I think. Some food listings, some recipies, some suggestions for behavior changes.

-Book 2:Adding exercise. How to increase your exercise.

-Book 3: essentially, keep going. How to keep the interest now that you've been dieting for a while. Appreciating the new you, etc.

-Points Booster. This allows you to calculate how many food points worth of exercise you've done

-The supermarket guide Tony mentioned

-An eating out guide that lists restaurant chains and how many points food at them is. My dieting housemate loves this one. He's discovered, for example, that a piece of KFC chicken without the skin is a manageable 3 points.

-A walking guide
-A pedometer
-A tape by someone that I've never opened
-Lots of journals to write in
-A phone number I could call

I think that's everything.
Presumably you can buy any of these things from a ww location whether you want to go to meetings or not.

I hope this sheds some light on the question!
