Best Bread To Eat On Weight Watchers

You will find that most bread is 1 point per slice that doesn't mean you don't have to be careful. Some brands have different types of breads that are higher in points. I remember when I started on Weight Watchers and going down the bread aisle was a nightmare. I didn't know which bread was “the best” to buy for the lowest points and still taste good. I didn't want bread that tasted like cardboard, that just wouldn't do.

Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Point Bread

Whew, that was an exhaustive list and I am sure there are more out there. The above list of 48 different bread brands are the best ones to eat. There are a few store specific breads brands like Great Value from Walmart that I did not include because hey I don't know about you but, if I am going to eat bread I want it to taste good, be soft, and not get stale on my way home from the grocery store. On the Weight Watchers Freestyle Program, you can eat whatever you want. It is amazing to me that after all of the fad diets and yoyo weight loss and gain that Weight Watchers has come up with a plan that can be tailored to each individual. A plan where you can eat what you want and still be healthy and bonus lose those unwanted pounds. All of the points calculated in this post use the Weight Watchers Freestyle program and points system.

With all of the bread above there is no real reason to buy or eat these breads down here. Well unless there is one here you just can't live without. You can I know you can and I believe you will not buy these now that you know there are lower point great-tasting breads brands up there 🙂 I included these so that it will make your shopping experience in the bread aisle a little easier to navigate. I know how hard it can be to navigate the bread aisle, I have been there, staring at the many loaves of bread wondering which one is lower in points and healthy and tastes good. You know there are some brands out there that no matter what you do in less than 24 hours it will be stale and only good for making toast, stuffing, or bread crumbs.
