Weight Watchers Freestyle Zero Points Food List now includes things like lean proteins, eggs, beans, lentils, tofu, nonfat plain yogurt, and all your favorite veggies and fruit.
Please note: This is the expected list for the new plan coming out in December and already out in the UK under the name Flex Plan. This has not been verified by Weight Watchers for the US yet.
One of the main features of the Weight Watchers program is their point system. All foods are given a points value and your goal on the program is to stay within your daily points allowance. However anyone who has dieted before knows that when hunger strikes, it can be difficult to stay on track. That’s why Weight Watchers offers a wide variety of healthy food options that have zero SmartPoints. These zero Points foods can be eaten freely on the plan and are a great way to stay within your daily target.
Under the newest Weight Watchers plans – Freestyle in the US and Flex in the UK – there are a bunch of new zero points foods! Hooray! The new list now includes lean proteins like eggs, chicken breast, and turkey. It also includes beans and legumes like chickpeas, black beans, and lentils as well as nonfat plain yogurt and tofu. This is in addition to the fruits and vegetables that were zero points in the previous plans.
Personally I couldn’t be more excited about all these new options! It will make it much easier to create a lower point meal and since protein is now a part of the list, it will be easier to stay full with zero points options. My only concern is that it will be much easier to potentially overeat. The new zero points foods have more calories and if you are eating too many, it could be possible to gain weight on the new plan.
