According to WebMD.com, twice as many dieters on Weight Watchers lost at least 10 percent of their weight compared to people with a health professional.
The study was completed by monitoring 141 overweight and obese adults, WebMD wrote.
The findings are reportedly a big deal because clinical programs are usually more expensive.
