Instant Pot Weight Watchers Recipes
There is an actual calculator that you could buy through Weight Watchers, or possibly eBay or Amazon. I am excited about WW again. My advice is just choose a diet plan which your body reacts positively to. I never saw the estimated points per meal chart. You just saved me a ton of work. If they are raw, they are free. If you eat less, your weight loss will slow down or stop.

Does Slim 4 Life Work?

The Best Frozen Meals for Weight Loss

I am 42 also and have noticed that the weight comes off slower that when I was younger. Keep working at it and you will lose the weight!! One of my friends got stuck — took her 6 months to lose 16 lbs. The 2nd 6 months she lost 50lbs. I have done Weight Watchers online for 2 years and am now in maintenance.

Just FYI… there is a phenomenal meal planning service that gives you breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert every week with PointsPlus calculated.

I use it and recommended it to my friend who is cash crunched. She loves it too. Website is shrinkingonabudgetmealplan dot com not sure if I can post links here.

Can you give me your email address? You said you have a link for the special? Sample meal plan on the site looks really good though. I would hugely appreciate it if you could do that for me. My email is jillfiredup on yahoo and I just checked. I do have a working link to that special. I am on the WW Point plus and used the calculator as well and it was off. Im not sure if that will help anyone but I have lost 41 points in 6 months on this plan and its awesome!!

I do it online and pay Good luck to all!! Hi this is great! I was hoping you had something for the old weight watchers though? If not I may try this again: Hi, i have never done weight watcher before.. I am slow at understanding.. Lolli, Most of your fruit and veggies are zero points. Then to figure out the points in food you need to know the calories, protein, fiber and carbs in the item. You put that into the Points Plus Calculator and viola you know how many points in that item.

Also, you can google the item to get the nutritional info. The higher the fiber and protein the lower the points value. Hi carbs raise the points value. Hope that helps you!! I just found this on Pinterest, and I am sooooo happy! I was just thinking about how in the world I was going to come up with the money to join Weight Watchers. Thank you so much for doing this. What am I doing wrong? Everytime I enter a food into the points calculater the points part reads NaN.

Thank you so much for posting this!!! I actually pay for the service and your calculators are significantly off. Thank u so much for this! I too am a full time breastfeeding mama of 2 and although I have lost 52lbs already w hard work and nursing, I still have about 30lbs until I am at my healthiest weight.

I am hoping this program will help get m there. Can anyone tell me how to calculate the number of daily points if I am on maintenance using the plan? Just please be mindful of not depriving yourself.

I just wanted to report my friend has been doing Weight Watchers simply by using tools found on this post. She just could not afford doing Weight Watchers online right now. I double checked her PointsPlus with my online tools and the PointsPlus she was given matched what the calculator said. She has already lost 7 pounds. It is shrinking on a budget. My problem is that i realy like sweetys, and i cant stop snacking: My recommendation would be to check out some of the links above like SkinnyTaste and the like.

Um, I need help with the second link to calculating the points of your food. What info do you enter here? Is it food label info? If so, how do you get the points of chicken, pork, etc? I would really like to lose about 15lbs just for health reasons. Thanks for your help. Yes, you enter the food label info into the food point calculator. For foods without a label like meats, fruit, etc. I knew that as long as I made healthy choices, I was on plan.

The points were more of a jumping off point: Googling something is never my first thought!!! Guess my age is showing! Does anyone have a list of all kinds of foods, their point value and serving size? I did ww along time ago and their books of food really helped.

Does anyone have access to the charts we would use to keep track of our daily and weekly intake, also the weigh on charts? Thank you so much for this info!

I joined WW last year and lost 26 lbs in 5 months. I then got pregnant with my 2nd babe and had to stop. I know how it all works but needed to know the extra points for breastfeeding. She is still nursing pretty full time but she does get formula and has currently started on rice cereal.

I am going to start with the 7 points and add the other if needed. I wanted to let those know who are looking into this that it is all pretty accurate. I found when I was on the system last year and attending meetings I was still eating what I normally ate but was eating less and the weight started to come off.

I entered my info on the link Ashley provided, it gave me 26 points. But again, portion control as well as moving more, you will see a difference in the scale! Would you happen to have a link or something with the recipe builder. I make this killer granola and want to know how many points it will cost me! Not sure I can give it up just yet: I really appreciate this page. Hopefully reading these comments will keep me encouraged. I cant afford weight watchers and I thought I could do this by myself but Im extremely inconsistant when dieting and working out.

You can so do it! I had success twice with WW many years ago and would love to do it again but have a couple of questions please. I checked and my points are 39 per day but another link on here said 26 for daily target what is that? Also how do you know how many points the foods are for example a cup of mashed pot or a chicken breast etc.

Thank you for any help you could provide. I wanted to ask if you know of a place that has a free recipe builder that will either calculate the points plus value, or provide you with the combined nutritional info so you can then find the points plus value?

I googled, and this is what I came up with: I would always just calculate each ingredient separately, then add them together: It is so customizable and the options are endless. FYI — I have nothing to do with the company. I just love the software. I can use in a day etc…I much prefer to have a set amount of numbers to work with…easy peasy!!! Sue, There is a website which you can access on your smartphone browser namely: I use it all the time and I think you will find it useful!

Thanks for sharing as I just had my 2nd baby and cannot afford the program. I calculated my points based on the old program and it is How can iI find out how much would it be now with the new program. Is this even possible at all? Also, if I follow the older version with the older point system, is the points for the food now the same?

When I was on the program, is used this nifty site when eating out. I just bookmarked it on my smartphone. I just started last week and have not seen any changes as of yet: I have been going over my daily allowance but use the extra points from exercising to go back to my allowance… Thoughts?

You can do it: If you have an iPad there are some great apps for free or very inexpensive that will do all that for you, they even have scanners to scan bar codes that give you the points right at the store before you even buy the food, that has been truly valuable. Now if only someone would come up with an electronic tracker that is free life would be so awesome!!!

It tracks your daily, weekly and activity points. You can even search foods and their pp values on there and look for restaurants. I was bouncing between three different android apps trying to keep it all together. My thumbs also thank you: Hi I would also like to get a pp value for foods. Is there an app I can purchase. Can I down load it on to my PC? Or does it have to be on downloaded on to a phone.

What about the additional 49 points each week? I worked for WW for 18 years. It works great, if you stick to it! I too lost 60lbs in on WW, I had all the supplies and I knew someone that went to the meetings, so she bought me the calculator, however, that was for the regular pts.

WW is such a great program!! So, when figuring out how many Points Plus you are allowed daily, do you put in your current weight or do you put in your target weight?

You enter your current weight. With each 10 pounds you lose, reconfigure your daily Points Plus allowance: I have a couple of questions though! Now if you work out then do you get extra points for working off so many calories? Now the only way to caculate the food is with the points calculator right? For instance if I had small spinch salad and turkey burger for lunch how do i know how many points that was all together?

Once again thanks so much: Yes, you do get activity points for working out. Also, for calculating points in recipes, I would always calculate the point value of each ingredient, then tally them up.

Hi Ashley, How do you calculate homemade items. I just made some vegetable beef soup? Also how do you go about figuring out points on earned and what type of things does that include. I calculate home made foods by first calculating the individual ingredients, then totaling them all up at the end: I have a question on the points calculator do I put in my current weight or my goal weight? Thank you sooo much for posting! I am super excited! I am confused on one thing though. I used the calculator above and it says I need 39 points a day.

I used a calculator from another website WW calculator claim and It says I need 32 a day. I would like to do it the right way. I was on WW in and my daily points allowance for my same weight was 24points according to your calculations I should be eating 27points?? Why is their a major difference now?

When the plan changed to Points Plus, the daily targets went up, so did many points values especially higher carb foods. The new plan gently pushes you in the direction of making more healthy and satisfying choices. Mine went from 21 to There is an actual calculator that you could buy through Weight Watchers, or possibly eBay or Amazon. Just gotta search around: You can find a location close to you on weightwatchers. As a life time member of weight watchers there are some things that you need to know before embarking on this journey without the help of the weight watcher staff.

The daily point value that you are supposed to eat is not acurate. The minimum daily point value for everyone regardless of the amount of weight to loose is No one should be eating less than 26 points per day. You need to make sure you have 2 tsp of healthy oils as well and eat from the 4 food groups every day plus lots of water. Weight Watchers is an awesome program that helps you loose weight the healthy, safe way. I recommend it for everyone and you can eat everything you want just calculate the point values.

Its not a diet but a life style. Good luck on your journey! Thank you so much for posting these tools! I lost 30lbs on weight watchers a couple of years ago and am excited to get started again!

Do you happen to know of a recipe builder like tool so that you can put in a recipe and find the point value? Calorie count will let you build a recipe and give you the nutritional info, which you can then enter into the points calculator. Some that do have points are potatoes, corn, peas…. Comment if you have other questions.

Without that , how would you know how much to eat a day? Happy to find your site. A few years back I lost with the old Points system by just following through online resources and some friends.

I wanted to find out about Points Plus and you gave me the info. I am currently doing WW online and have lost 40 lbs in 6 months. Was worried about not having access to the restaraunts, calculater, etc. YOU are a lifesaver. You do get 49 extra points each week to use as you see fit. And exercise, exercise, exercise! Thanks so very much for posting this. I usually follow the meal plan fairly closely, but I was concerned I would miss the tools when I went out to eat and when I occasionally choose a different meal.

These tools will fill in that gap nicely. I will also say that, based on what I have seen with online tools over the past year, these tools suggested in this article are accurate for the most part.

Any ideas for how I can follow this successfully? Just do your best to make fresh choices. Stock up on those steam-in-bag single serve frozen veggies if you have a freezer. Keep fruit in your room. A big thing is portion sizing, as well. Protein the size of a deck of cards, tons of veggies, etc. Whole wheat, whole grain, low fat dressing. Do you have a way to figure out excersize points? Thanks for this awesome post! Fruits and veggies are FREE! But I eat one every day.

It definitely helps with the afternoon munchies…. Fruits are not FREE, they are 0 points plus values. Fruit is 0 points. You should get the recommended fruits and vegetables in a day which is servings a day I believe. Be smart…measure out one portion and then evaluate whether you are still hungry.

Is there a pre-existing list of basic foods anywhere? I would also recommend this points plus calculator at http: I also lost a lot of weight with WW a few years ago, then after a long year with two foot surgeries, etc. WW is a great program, when you follow it: There is another free program that is just as good, with added options for your whole health, etc.

How many points do you add if you are nursing mom on the Points Plus? OK… was starting to type and see you found it. I have been looking for something like this I am a new nursing mom: She said it was too expensive to join. In 15 weeks I have lost 30 pounds. I lost about 6 pounds the first week and then after that I averaged pounds. When i exercised I didnt add in any points. I just stuck to my point allowance and the weight came off.

Is the points calculator on this site accurate or not? Thank you so much!!! Now I can hopefully start!!! So you lost Thanks to whoever it was who told me about Shrinking On A Budget. Thanks to Freckleberry Finds for this post too! If I am allowed 26 daily points on points plus, how do I fill out the log? You are such a star for this!

All I wonder is if you have a preference for a friendly weight loss forum? Like a nice community of people helping each other out? Your blog is amazing!

Thank you so much. I would suggest checking out http: It gives free points values for foods weight watchers plus as well as restaurant dishes and their point values. Does anyone know it there is a points plus food companion floating around anywhere? Thanks for the links! I wanted to add that if you go to foodfacts.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. Just to keep it organized. WW did change point values for about items in their new FreeStyle and Flex program. If the points are updated to reflect system, then I will update it. The download button is below the image!

Here is a blank meal planner for you to use so you can make up your own meals, and theres a place for you to enter in your SmartPoints to keep track. The download button is below the image. Whatever your goals are, maintain your weight or lose weight, I hope you enjoy all the true benefits of the combination of the Instant Pot and Weight Watchers.

The points were actually provided by the recipes sites themselves. I was just trying to be more resourceful and providing the points that were supplied next to the recipes.
