Weight Watchers Essential Shopping List

I am loving the Weight Watchers Freestyle Program.  Every food is assigned a point value based on calories, protein, sugar, and fat.  The food starts with a points value based on calories.  Then, the points go up based on sugar and fat.  Which explains why you should avoid regular cake and cookies (ugh).  The point value goes down based on protein. So it’s no surprise high protein, low calorie foods are also very low in points and should make up a good portion of your diet.

I’ve been on the program for a few months and these are the essentials I always have in the house. It allows me to have low point options at the tip of my fingertips to stay on track.  Soon, I’ll write about how I use them all, but for now stock up on the below. You won’t be disappointed.  I’ve scanned the aisles and found the lowest point options and alternatives available.
