A new British study says programs like Weight Watchers are more effective at helping you lose weight than your doctor.

The study found commercial weight-loss programs are not only more effective but they're also cheaper.

Researchers said that after 12 weeks, those in the study who used Weight Watchers lost, on average, nearly 10 pounds.

On the other hand, those who visited their doctor lost just over three pounds.
