What You'll Eat
Eat whatever you want—as long as you stick to your daily PointsPlus target, a number based on your gender, weight, height, and age. You can track points values of more than 40,000 foods on the company’s website, or even on your smart phone. To get the most mileage out of your points, avoid processed foods, which usually have the highest values. Fresh fruits and veggies, on the other hand, carry zero points, so you can eat them with abandon. Though they’re not required, the company’s packaged meals include everything from breakfast sandwiches to ice cream treats. Nothing is off-limits, and restaurant meals are doable if you follow Weight Watchers’ tips.
You’ll find thousands of recipes on the company’s website, complete with serving size, preparation and cooking time, difficulty level, and user reviews. Options include guacamole, Philly cheese steaks, sautéed shrimp, and mixed berry crumble. Here are some other resources:
