What you can and cannot eat

On the weight watchers diet you can basically eat whatever you want. The only thing you have to worry about is staying in your daily points range.

EX: A sample meal for weight watchers is reduced white bread pb&j sandwich with fried potato chips.


Weight Watchers has an entire book dedicated on what to eat at fast food joints like McDonald's, Taco Bell, etc. so long as you stay within your daily points.

Food Pyramid VS. Weight Watchers

The food pyramid promotes whole, healthy foods while weight watchers does not. It is eat whatever you want as long as you stay in your daily points limit.
