Weight Watchers Frequently Asked Questions

When you join Weight Watchers – even if you're not so new at it – you may have questions. Besides the support groups on Facebook, blogs are going to be the best resource to answer your Weight Watchers questions. You can also use the online chat option on weightwatchers.com, or ask in person at your next Weight Watchers meeting.

Weight Watchers isn't working. What do I do? Here are some tips.

Should I eat my weeklies?

How do I know how much weight I need to lose? How to Choose Your Goal Weight

Before you eat, ask yourself: Are you really hungry?

Can I do Keto and Weight Watchers? – I feel like this is a question asked in the groups almost daily. WW and Keto are pretty much opposite diets, so read this before you try to do both.

Eek, I hit a plateau! Now what? How to Break a Plateau

What if I fall off the wagon? It's easy! Use this post to help you get back on track.

Weight Watchers Meetings

Are in-person Weight Watchers meetings really necessary? Read: in-person vs online only.

I personally don't feel that in-person meetings are necessary for success, but many members will tell you they need the meetings. Whether you decide to do online only or sign up in-person, your success depends on how dedicated you are to your weight loss. Just like with any other weight loss program, there are a few things you've gotta do. With Weight Watchers, this means tracking points and finding support (whether online or off). I really, really like the Facebook groups I'm in. They help me when I don't have time to go to meetings.

Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods

What's up with the zero point foods? If you aren't fluent in Freestyle yet, you may be wondering exactly how many zero point foods you can get away with eating without gaining weight. Unfortunately, the answer is different for every single person who does the Weight Watchers diet. Some people can eat as many zero point foods as they want and still see results, while others have to count everything they eat and drink. Just like some can eat all of their weeklies, while others don't do so well if they eat them. It's all going to be a little bit of trial and error when you first start, so don't get discouraged. If you find yourself stalling, mix it up.

Weight Watchers Breakfasts

Ah, breakfast, the most important meal of the day! You've gotta start your day off right. Remember, eggs are zero points so your breakfast should be pretty easy. That leaves you plenty of points for the rest of the day. If you're sick of eggs or want to mix it up a bit, here are some of my favorite Weight Watchers breakfasts.

Weight Watchers Lunches

Lunch can be tough, especially if you're on the go all day. Plan everything out ahead of time so you don't derail your point count. This may look different for you than it does for me: I meal prep on Sundays. If you can't do that, use your Instant Pot to cook dinner and make a double batch so you can use leftovers for lunch.

Weight Watchers Dinners

How many points do you have left for the day? If you have quite a few, you want to use them up at dinner and maybe dessert. You don't want to be too far under your point goal for the day. On the other hand, if you're already at the top of your points, you may want to have a zero point dinner and skip dessert. You can always dip into your weeklies if need be. 😉
