Can you tell me if I am likely to lose weight eating weight watchers frozen meals every day?

Can you tell me if I am likely to lose weight eating weight watchers frozen meals every day?

Nothing magical: There's nothing magically added to a weight watcher's meal except they control the calories and portion size. Weight loss all comes down to calories in versus calories out.

I'm a female 19 5'5 and weigh 110lbs. To maintain weight with no/little excercise what diet works. Moderate diet, zone diet, low fat/carb diet ? Help!
