Hey guys,

Starting w w again as of tomorrowand wondered what kind of meals you guys have? What staples can't you live without?
When I think of w w I think pre packed meals and hunger pangs - is the new plan any different?

Really thankful for any replies :) xx

Hi. I only started on Monday so don't have many tips but really wanted to share what I've been doing and say good luck!

I have a box of low point treats - blue ribands (3PP), toffee crisp biscuits (3PP) and WW mini chocolate rolls (2PP) at the moment. I have been planning my meals ahead and have printed off loads of the recipes from the WW site and here to inspire me. I also have a few ready meals in for the times when I know I won't be bothered to start cooking!

Hope this helps a little and another huge GOOD LUCK!!!

I hardly ever use ready meals hon, I find they're higher in pp for less food than something you'd make yourself!! Plenty of recipes on WW site and on here to get you thinking. I get home quite late from work in the evenings and often cook up a stir fry in about 3-5 mins and its yummy, filling AND low pp! :)
I also LOVE the WW bagels. 4pp per bagel :) I always keep plenty of low pp snacks around in case I get peckish. A few I like are WW mini rolls for 2pp, mini mcvities biccies 3pp a bag, rice krispie square for 3pp, skips or quavers 2pp, 15g bag salted popcorn 2pp.
For a REAL choccie fix I have a multipack flake bar for only 4pp!! :D x
Good luck on WW hon ;) x

Hi, this is my 3rd week on weightwatchers so pretty new to it. The things I couldn't do without are WW layered fromage frais 1p, snack a jacks 3p, belvita breakfast biscuits 2p per biscuit, warbutons thins 3p, various WW treats which are all relatively low points. I tend to stick to WW ready meals because it fits into my lifestyle better & I can't really cook but I bulk them out with other things. For example I might have the WW lasagne but have WW garlic bread & some microchips (which are 5p) with it. Or WW chicken hotpot with WW swede & carrot mash & veg. Also I have changed to veggie meat where possible e.g. Asda veggie burgers are delicious & only 2 p per burger. I tend to have biscuits for bekkie, snack like yoghurt, pre pack fruit salad for lunch, snack mid afternoon e.g. Snack a jacks/WW Choccie biscuit, tea (I save most of my points 4 t as I need to feel like I'm having something - if that makes sense) then snack in evening.

I use all my dailys & divide my weeklies so I have extra points daily & in 3 weeks I've lost a good dress size, I've gone from a tight 18 to lose 16. I prefer to go by my cloths instead of gettin obsessed with the scales, like I did when I lost a lot of weight previously.

Another tip, every night I write everything down, what I've eaten/drank. I find keeping a food diary really helps. If you go to meetings, you can get the free green trackers every week.

Sorry for waffling and good luck :)

Belvita are actually 2pp if you have 1. 3pp if you have 2. 5pp if you have 3 and 6pp if you have 4 :D

Using milk & cereal as an example...

Oh wow that's great news, I just pointed them at 2 points per biscuit so for 4 8p :) that's more points I can have for my WW treats like - honeycomb & toffee ice-cream - yum yum!

I always do that though work at single points then double it/triple it?

Nah! 4 is defo 6pp hon! I checked again there for ya (i have a box on my desk heehee)

Sometimes working with single points and doubling/tripling overpoints or underpoints things so I always like multiply the NI by how many I'm having... sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised :) x

5pp hon :D x

I know! I had one last night too and actually rechecked it then to make sure it was definitely 5pp. A cadbury flake is 5pp too (if you get the multipack ones they're slightly smaller and are 4pp ;) ) Mmm... choccie :)

Im having a crunchie tonight for 5PP. Curly wurly is good for 3PP.
Poundland have some WW products I love the WW naan at 3PP get some recipes from the wbsite or just google Propoint recipes. Cook from scratch and you know what has gone into it and you know what the propoints are.
My biggest tip is track everything that you eat even if you go over your points it helps to look back on.
Good luck xx

Hiya my staple breakfast is a homemade smoothie - I usually have 1/2pint semi skimmed milk, strawberries, banana and raspberries. Only costing me 4pp

I always make sure I've got zero point Veg in the freezer so I can make zero point soup. I can also blend the soup and make a zero point pasta sauce. Very handy when i know I'm having a high pointed dinner and want to save points but still have a good meal.

I find M&S Count on us range is the best meals, however I only have one meal once a week when im doing zumba. I usually have a 8-10pp meal for dinner.

Good luck
