Summer's a great time to diet. Many fruits and vegetables are at their peak and fresh seafood is abundant. Clockwise, from upper right, are I Love Tomatoes Salad, Mussels in Spicy Tomato Sauce and Shrimp and Sausage Paella.

Since the international organization was founded by Jean Nidetch in 1963, scores of people have made their weight goals a reality.

Over the years, the Weight Watchers "eating management" course evolved into a "points food system," where foods are evaluated and assigned points based on factors such as their caloric, fat and fiber content.

Weight Watchers writes cookbooks, too. The first three recipes I tried from "Weight-Watchers All-Time Favorites: Over 200 Best-Ever Recipes from the Weight Watchers Test Kitchens" were all winners -- easy to prepare, attractive, delicious.

There are 222 more recipes to try in this cookbook, each promising to look as good on you, as in you. For more information on Weight Watchers, visit or call 1-800-651-6000.
