Weight Watchers

By: Ryan J. and Matthew H.

Basic Info

Weight Watchers is based on proteins, carbohydrates, fats and fiber. It is a low carb, high protein diet. The less carbs for your body to use as fuel the more fat your body will burn. Proteins are made of amino acids, which are very filling. So the higher the protein in the foods you eat the less you will want to eat.

Impact on The Body

An increase in amino acids can cause heart diseases. When diets cause the body to burn fats for energy the kidneys have to work harder to get rid of ketones, which increase the risk of kidney stones.

One Day Meal Plan

First for breakfast you could have half a serving of Canadian bacon, two large eggs, and four cups of hash brown patties. This in total will be 76.65 grams of carbohydrates, 18.3 grams of fat, and 8.8 grams of protein. For a snack in between breakfast and lunch you could eat one serving, or five crackers, of Nabisco Fat-Free Saltine Crackers. This Snack is 12 g. of carbs, no fat, and 1 g. of protein. For lunch we suggest two cups rainbow salad with honey lemon dressing. This lunch will give you a healthy 24 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fat, and 4 grams of protein. For a snack between lunch and dinner you can eat 4 pieces of Whitman Weight Watchers Bit Size Dark Chocolates. This snack racks up a healthy 14 grams of carbs, 9 grams of fat, and 1 gram of protein. For dinner we recommend one skewer of chicken yakitori kebabs and one cup of Weight Watchers Lentil Rice side dish. The weight loss dinners will give you 6.9 grams of carbohydrates, .1 grams of fat, and 1.15 grams of protein.
