Why are zero point recipes a good way to start the day?
Starting your Weight Watchers day off with a zero point breakfast is a great idea because it leaves you all of your points for the rest of the day. You never know where your day is going to take you, right?
What if you get asked out for dinner later but you’ve already used a good chunk of your WW points for the day? Weekly points running low? Bummer. Now you have to be boxed in on your choices for dinner.
When you begin the day with a low or no points breakfast you leave yourself plenty of wiggle room for the rest of the meals and snacks throughout the day.
Another reason I really like to start the day with zero point breakfast recipes is the fact that they make me feel good! I’m encouraged when I have a delicious meal to start my day that doesn’t cost me any of my daily or weekly points.
Starting the day off full, satisfied, and feeling great about my healthy meal plan helps me make good choices throughout the rest of the day as well!
Can I make an entire zero point meal plan?
No, and I’ll explain why eating only zero point meals is not a good idea. The Weight Watchers program is designed to work within a healthy range. Your daily healthy range will be determined on the app but it’s usually between -5 and +10 of your daily recommended points.
The program teaches you how to make smart and healthy choices about portion control, processed versus whole foods, and more. It’s important to keep in mind that your body needs more than just the zero points foods that you’ll find on the food list.
Eating well and seeing results on the WW program is possible but you won’t continue to see the results you desire if you are only eating zero point foods. You will also likely start to get bored of them, lose energy, and be more likely to quit.
Use these zero point breakfast recipes to help you on days when you know you’ll need more points in the afternoon, times when your weekly points are running low, or spice them up with foods that have points when you can!
Zero point recipes, meals, and foods should be incorporated into your healthy meal plan, they shouldn’t take over.
