    Newbie - Food Shopping?

    Hi all,

    im joining my local weight watchers class on Monday, and I wanted to try and get organised before hand, and stock my cupboards ready.

    Ive always been a Slimming World Girl, and I have no real idea about the weight watchers diet and what I can eat.

    I have picked up the current magazine for ideas, but I was wondering if anybody could guide me with some ideas of what to sort of foods to buy in?

    Thanks in Advance

    Helen x

    Lots of fruit and veggies, brown rice, wholemeal pasta, tinned tomatoes and some lean meat (unless you're vegetarian). Also can't go wrong with canned tuna and some low fat dairy products. Basically when you choose, choose healthy and limit the bread (I've gone onto WW bread as it's much better points wise than my usual). Hope that helps some!

    Meringue nests (1 pp for one and lovely with fruit and yogurt).

    WW yogurts
    WW petit pains
    WW cake slices are a great sweet snack in evenings with a cuppa and 2 pp each.
    WW hot chocolate I love the cappuccino cake one for 1pp.
    WW crisps or hoops & crosses.

    Warbutons brown thins free on filling and healthy.
    Eggs.
    Bread - my favourite is Hovis wheatgerm 400g loaf which is free on filling and healthy.
    Pickles. Great on salads.

    Low fat cheese.

    Thankyou both for your replies, its been a great help.

    im really looking forward to going to class tonight (the plan seems too good to be true!)

    I decided I would go shopping straight after my class so I can be prepared for my first day tomorrow.

    I cant wait to be back in control of my eating again

    I lost 3.5 stone on slimming world, but I got complacent and stopped trying with it so stopped going, and since then a stone of that weight has managed to creep back on!!!

    im getting Married in February, so I have a very good reason to lose the weight!!!

    Helen xx
