If you follow the Weight Watchers plan, you will have heard all about Filling and Healthy foods. If you don’t, you’ll be wondering what they are. Don’t worry, I’m here to help. Along with that, I’m going to share why they’re so good for you and why you should focus on them as part of your diet.
What Are Weight Watchers Filling and Healthy Foods?
In short, these foods are all highlighted green on all Weight Watchers products, whether in the cookbooks, on the app or in the little pocket guide you got when you signed up. They’re higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates in most cases, and break down in the body much slower than other types of food.
Some examples include fruit and vegetables, lean meats and wholegrain pasta.
So What’s So Great?
Weight Watchers Filling and Healthy foods are simply better for you than others. Because they break down slower, they may you feel fuller for longer. They STRETCH your pro-points budget.
By feeling fuller, you don’t feel the need to eat as much. You’re less likely to snack on chocolate, and more likely to feel satisfied after a meal.
Even if you’re not following the Filling and Healthy plan on the Weight Watchers diet, you should include them in your meals.
Why Focus on Filling and Healthy Foods
To start with, the fact that you feel fuller is a great reason to focus on them. You’ll eat less, so you tend to lose more weight.
They’re also healthier options for you when it comes to meals. This isn’t just because of the protein vs. carb factor, but the fact that they have less fat and more fibre. They’re full of nutrients that your body needs, including water. Just think about all those juicy fruits and the nutrient-packed vegetables that you can have on the plan.
For those following the pro-points plan, they also tend to be lower in pro-points. This is great for those who want to add more to their meal, but don’t have the allowance to do so. The majority of fruits and vegetables are zero pro-points. Think about how much you could fill your plate by adding them to your meal! You can easily have guilt-free, healthy desserts and treats!
I love Weight Watchers Filling and Healthy foods. The next time you’re looking for something to stretch your budget, look at your list of options. There are a lot of healthy and tasty choices to make.
