Weight Watchers Low and No Point Foods

Moms View Message Board: Let's Get Fit! (Weight Loss Support Group): Weight Watchers Low and No Point Foods
By Insaneusmcwife on Friday, March 26, 2004 - 10:24 am:

Just wanted to share with you that there are some really good 1 point breads. Wonder Light is only 1 point for 2 slices, and it comes in a variety of flavors my favorite being the sourdough. They also make hot dog buns and hamburger buns. There is a bagel called the alternative bagel and they are really yummy at 1 point for the whole bagel. I havent seen the bagels at the commissary yet but they do have them at the grocery stores out in town.
As I think of more low and no point foods I'll post them. Please share any of your findings.

When you join do they give you a book? i thought they did anyways?

Skinny Cow makes 2 point ice cream and treats. I really like their ice cream sandwiches. :)

By Amy~moderator on Friday, March 26, 2004 - 12:47 pm:

Good low point choices I've found are butter with yogurt (Brummel and Brown, or Country Crock with Yogurt).

Natures Own Light Honey Wheat bread is great! And only 1 pt for two slices.

Of course, Crystal Light - no points!

Spray butter! Zero pts and it tastes great on vegetables, popcorn, etc. It's a must in our house.

Boca Veggie Burgers are only 1 or 2 pts, top with Heinz Chili Sauce (more like a spicy ketchup) and it tastes wonderful!

I use Dijon mustard for zero pts instead of mayo on my turkey sandwiches.

Believe it or not, most fudgecicles are only 2pts, great when you get a craving for sweets.

By Brandy on Friday, March 26, 2004 - 02:59 pm:

wow this is great news lol i don't know if i will be able to go over my points with these foods so that's great...Amy any spray butter?

By Insaneusmcwife on Saturday, March 27, 2004 - 10:43 pm:

"I can't believe its not butter" the spay has 0 Points, thats what I use.

By Brandy on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 01:40 pm:

I dont know someone needs to post some more no point or 1 or 2 point foods because everything i'm eating isn't under 3 points. = ) I'm just teasing in a way but seriously it seems like i've been starving and plus i've been getting 3 ap's everyday.But i'm still going over my points = ( well 8 yesterday and 1 the day before.

You can go to the weight watchers site and do a recipe search, the search can be done by points range or by course. You do have to register for a screen name and password but its free. It won't give you access to the whole site but some of the site is free.

By Insaneusmcwife on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 04:46 pm:

Also its o.k. to go over your points, you get an additional 35 points per week. You dont have to use them but they are there if you need them. I try to save my points for Thursday nights, after the WW meeting some us us get togeather and go out for dinner.

By Insaneusmcwife on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 05:03 pm:

Ok its me again, If you are really hungry it might just be that you need to drink more water,they told us at one of the meetings that your body will sometimes send mixed messages and make you think you are hungry and infact you just need water.
some 0-Point vegetables are
brussel sprouts
green or wax beens
hearts of palm
mixed green salad (dressing has points)
fresh mushrooms
pickles (unsweetened)
fresh pumpkin
spaghetti, summer and zuccchini squash

Most fruits and vegetables are 0-3 points

Orange 3" 1

This was the first thing that came up when I did a search for 0 point foods!! I found some interesting things in my book, but I'm still looking online.

I use Splenda instead of sugar, and Splenda is 0 pts.

Coffee is 0 pts, sweeten with Splenda, and use non-fat creamer, and your coffee is guilt-free!!

The WW Fudge bars are SO YUMMY!!!! I'm pretty sure they are 1 pt.

By Insaneusmcwife on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 04:19 am:

Oh I so need to get back on program. I am the heaviest that I have ever been and would like to loose at least 60lbs before dh gets back.

By Cat on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 08:09 am:

Join Crystal and me, Kristie! I've been counting points for a week now and am getting ready to post my weekly weigh in. :) Right now I'm eating a very yummy 2-3 point breakfast of oatmeal with peaches (frozen, unsweetened--either 0 or 1 point, the book's not too clear). When's your hubby coming home?

By Crystal915 on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 08:10 am:

So come on!! Cat and I are doing the points program together, we just started. :)

By Insaneusmcwife on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 05:21 pm:

I'm going to wait one more week before I start. I know I'm procrastinating but Dh leaves on the 2nd (for 14 months) and wants me to cook for him before he goes. But I will join you guys once he leaves.

By Insaneusmcwife on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 05:23 pm:

Cat- did you check the cal fat and fiber on the package of peaches. I always check the package before the book.

By Cat on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 09:28 pm:

I didn't, Kristie. I'll have to look--there's still some left in the freezer. :)

By Cat on Friday, December 28, 2007 - 08:01 am:

Okay, so what am I looking at with the cal, fat and fiber? Here's what I have.
Peaches--60 cal, 1g fat, 3g fiber
Strawberries--50 cal, 0g fat, 2g fiber
Raspberries--60 cal, 0g fat, 2g fiber
Blueberries--70 cal, 0g fat, 4g fiber
They're all VIP brand and that's not in the book. Neither is Lean Cuisine!!! I have a LC pepperoni pizza and don't know how to figure the points. :( AH, I just did a search and it's 7 points. Not too bad considering one slice at Pizza Hut is about that. HELP with the frozen fruits!!! :)

By Crystal915 on Friday, December 28, 2007 - 09:57 pm:

Here's a calculator Point Calculator

Put the values in, and you have your points!!

By Cat on Friday, December 28, 2007 - 10:43 pm:

THANKYOU!!! I'd found a formula, but that's SO much more helpful! lol

Hello, I am new to this subject and found this message board on a google search. I notice it's been a few days since anyone was here. I found this very useful. I have some older WW books from 2000, and I dug them out and started counting points. I have lost 5 lbs since I weighed last, I have been doing this 4 days now.

By Insaneusmcwife on Saturday, January 5, 2008 - 12:33 pm:

Welcome to the program. Congrats on your loss. Be careful when weighing your self. You will fluxuate during the week. I have hidden my scale so that I am not tempted to weigh more than 1x a week.

By Longaboo on Sunday, January 6, 2008 - 07:57 am:

THANK YOU!! Thanks for the pointer. I refuse to weigh myself everyday, I think it just sets one up for disappointment because the body really does fluctuate. I have found that blue jeans do not lie however and they make the best judge haha. I initially lost weight about 2 years ago when I quit drinking alcohol. I went from my heaviest weight to where I am now and for the life of me no amount of "I think I ate pretty good" would allow me to shed a single pound. After calculating points, I see where I was grossly wrong. I figured it was time to do something else because two summers have gone by and each time spring rolls around I swear I will be buff by camping season. I feel this time I might succeed. I am on the low side of my normal weight. Whooo Hoooo.
