Weight Watchers rose through the US News & World Report's rankings in 2017 because of the company's switch to its Beyond the Scale program.

"The way we think about it is that we used to have a very narrow focus on weight, and now weight is one of things we focus on but it's not the only thing," Gary Foster, Weight Watchers' chief scientific officer, told Time magazine in late 2015. "The consumer sentiment is, 'I still want to lose weight, but I'm thinking about in a more holistic way."

Weight Watchers still uses its signature points system.

The Weight Watchers diet also ranked as the best diet for weight loss.
