weight watchers points question

How many points is a person on weight watchers supposed to eat for lunch? For instance the healthy choice meal I am eating says 7 weight watchers points. Is this good?

I think the low end of WW is around 22 points per day; if you're heavier and have more to lose, you are probably given more points than that.

So, 7 points for lunch seems reasonable - a little less than 1/3 of the points you're given for a day.

However, you need to be sure that those points are filling. If a healthy choice meal leaves you hungry an hour or two later, then it's not a healthy choice for you, b/c it's a somewhat large portion of your daily allotment of food.

I agree with 2:36. Although 7 points for lunch is fine, frozen meals are not the best option. They never filled me up. I can eat a lot more for the same points if I make my own.

But, the answer to your question is yes, I think 7 points would be fine for lunch.

I don't have time to make lunch everyday so I buy lean cuisines often and I make a big salad at the beginning of the week with lots of veggies and I eat a salad with the frozen entree throughout the week. I use about a tablespoon of low fat balsamic dressing so I still keep the points low. I agree that the entree alone is not enough, try adding a salad, or the zero point soup along with it.

WW points

Hi - when I did WW a few years ago, my range was 18-23 points a day (I was trying to lose 20 lbs, starting around 150)...

you can use the points however you want, but what seemed to work best for me was
breakfast - about 3-4 points (boiled eggs or granola bar 2 pts, and 2pt latte)
lunch - about 6-9 pts (your salad as filler is a great idea)
dinner - 8-12 pts
snacks - 2-4 pts (try carrots, bananas, there is a list of 1-pt snacks floating around the internet somewhere)

Good luck.

Has it really been three years since the
  • Wholesale Jerseys last World Baseball Classic? As we approach the second-ever World Baseball Classic odds, it is never too soon to start examining the power players. Keep in mind that after this WBC
  • NFL Shop , they will only come once every four nfl nike jerseys Here's the four major players in the upcoming 2009 WBC:

    United States +150 In baseball,cheap stitched nfl jerseys being an unknown team helps you because you become harder to scout and harder to prepare for
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • . Take a chance with the Cubans again. They take this tournament very seriously. As far as World Baseball Classics lines go, stitched nfl jerseyslook for the U.S. team to be a real underdog heading into the 2009 tournament
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • ?they might be worth a bet to win it all if the price is right.

    The Yankees underachieved in the 2006 World Baseball Classic and you can be assured that they will make some concerted effort to right the ship
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • . They boasted a fairly talented roster but neglected starting pitching, which was eventually the difference.

    Japan +800

    This is a pretty penny for a team that won the entire tournament in 2006. They are worth a flier here because keep in mind
  • Buffalo Bills
  • , for the most part, cheap nfl jerseysthe Japanese team is an unknown commodity. A lot of people are making assumptions and although the public perceives they are more flukey,cheap nfl jerseys than good, stitched nfl jerseysthe reality is that this is a stellar team. We're starting to get a taste with Ichiro
  • Carolina Panthers
  • , Daisuke Matsuzaka and Akinori Otsuka, but they are more than capable of winning it all again. Definitely a team to consider when you bet on the World Baseball Classic.

    Cuba +1000

    Speaking of great unknowns, it doesn't get much more mysterious than the Cuban team
  • CFL Jersey
  • . This team lost in the finals to Japan in 2006,cheap stitched nfl jerseys disappointing sportsbook diehards everywhere. The Cubans have a squad full of potential MLB All-Stars.stitched nfl jerseys cheap Last time around, the team was worried that a number of them might defect
  • Cleveland Browns
  • ,stitched nfl jerseys even though that that never turned out to be the case.

    Dominican Republic +175

    Go ahead, argue with a team that has Albert Pujols
  • Chicago Bears
  • , Alfonso Soriano, Jose Reyes and David Ortiz.stitched nfl jerseys cheap The sportsbooks certainly won't be debating it
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • .cheap stitched nfl jerseys Interestingly enough, stitched nfl jerseys cheapthis team doesn't have as much starting pitching as you might think and if the US team brings some good starters, they should be able to beat this team. Bartolo Colon and Francisco Liriano led this starting rotation in 2006. They have some work to do but they can clearly outhit anyone.
