Making Better Food Choices with Weight Watchers®

This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers® International as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Let me ask you: do you read nutrition labels on foods you buy at the grocery store? If you ask me, I have just recently started to.

I used to just pick our favorite brands whenever I buy food items like snacks, bread, canned goods, etcetera. But since my last visit with our family doctor, I’ve been watching what I eat and have started reading nutrition labels on foods I buy. It’s really amazing knowing and understanding the relationship between the foods we eat and how they affect our overall health. By consciously reading and interpreting food labels, it has helped me avoid making wrong food choices for myself and my family such as those with excess sugar and sodium.

So as part of my conscious effort to eat healthier and get more active, I’ve been practicing new habits (besides reading food labels) such as:

  • Using a smaller plate at meals to help control the amount of food and calories I eat.
  • Cooking healthier recipes that use less fat, salt, and sugar and checking out and nutrition information when ordering meals at restaurants.
  • Setting a goal to fit in at least an hour of moderate physical activity in my day. I love yoga, dancing and kickboxing.
  • Drinking at least 8 glasses of water everyday. I also keep a water bottle in my purse when I’m out or at my desk when I’m working to sip throughout the day.
  • Buying food products that have less calories and high in nutrients like the food products made by Weight Watchers®.

For a quick sandwich lunch at home or on-the-go, I love the Arnold® Sandwich Thins® rolls endorsed by Weight Watchers®. They come in a variety of flavors but I love the Healthy Multigrain best. I love making sandwiches and mini pizzas out of these flavorful sandwich thins! And if you’re watching your SmartPoints® Value, one sandwich thin roll is only 3 SmartPoints!

Once in a while, I indulge my sweet tooth and I am loving the deliciously decadent ice cream treats by Weight Watchers® too! And at only 4 SmartPoints®value or less, it’s great that I can enjoy my favorite sweet treats minus the guilt! I love the Snack Size Double Caramel Swirl Ice Cream Cones and the Snack Size Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Bars!

Also, if you happen to be at the candy aisle of your grocery store (I get my Weight Watchers® food products at my local Giant in Dale City), try their yummy chocolate candies too! Weight Watchers® Chocolate Candies by Whitman’s have just two SmartPoints® value per mouth-watering piece! At my last shopping trip at Giant, I picked the Weight Watchers® Mint Patties Dark Chocolate by Whitman’s. Yumm!

    I’ve made some nutrition goals this year as well. I will be checking out my store to see if they have some of these weight watcher items.

    I love those sandwich thins! Perfect when you don’t want to waste your calories on bread but still want bread.. does that make sense? LOL

    I would love to get back on Weight Watchers! I lost quite a bit of weight while participating, but at the moment, I’ve found the products a bit pricey for our budget.

    I must say that Weight Watchers foods have gotten much better tasting over the years. I know that I used to despise their meals because they tasted healthy, now they taste more like gourmet meals.

    I am trying to learn as much as I can about nutrition so that I eat the stuff that my body needs instead of the stuff that it craves. I have a huge sweet tooth so I’m trying to find ways to curb that.

    I love the Weight Watchers options that are available in stores now. I buy them quite a bit these days.
