Eating All Your Points

I often struggle to find ways to eat all my points within a day – let alone my weekly flex points. It was much easier to hit my daily target when vegetables and fruits still had Weight Watchers points. Am I eating too many fruits and veggies? Just kidding 🙂

I made a post over on the “What Are You Eating Today?” thread on the Weight Watchers forums, and it left me questioning my food choices.

To recap my meals for the day:

  • Breakfast: Chobani Vanilla Flip
  • Lunch: Tuna salad (with celery) on a toasted challah roll with tomatoes, chips, and pickles
  • Dinner: Skinny Taste Chicken cordon bleu, roasted broccoli, salad
  • Snacks: Banana, yogurt? (not sure what my snacks will be)

The problem here is after my breakfast and lunch, I have 28 points left for the day. This isn’t rare when I have 47 points per day! I’m trying to cut back on starches and carbs and focusing on protein and veggies, which is why I suspect dinner will be low. I’ve had a low appetite over the last few days, so I doubt I’ll be going out of my way to find snacks.

I may add chickpeas and avocado to my salad to bulk up the nutritional punch as well as get in more of my points,

I’m not a nut eater. I want to start juicing more but again, juices are 0 points if they’re all fruits and veggies.

Do you have a ton of points leftover at the end of the day? What do you eat to meet your targets?
