Weight Watchers International

WTW

U.S.

Weight Watchers has built a $1.3 billion business around the fight against obesity, emphasizing gradual, sustainable changes in eating and exercise habits rather than crash diets and packaged meals. The company has also successfully combated the stigma that keeps men away from weight-loss programs, in part by enlisting popular spokes-males like producer DJ Khaled.
