7 of the Best Zero Point Foods on Weight Watchers

If you are on Weight Watchers, there is no doubt in my mind that you are living that Zero Point life. Always in search of zero point foods to add to your list of favorites.

For those of you who don’t know, Weight Watchers runs on a system of points, and you are allotted a certain amount each day (dailies), with a collection of extras for the week (weeklies). I get 23 points a day, which is not a lot. I think when the program started points were based on calories, with each point equaling 100 calories. But I’m certain that’s not the case now.

Also, Weight Watchers just changed to a program called Freesytle. On Freestyle a ton more foods became zero points, like eggs and corn. I’ve done Weight Watchers on and off for years, and when I first did it, both of these foods cost points. Which was balanced out by the fact that you got way more points per day. I think I used to get 30!

When you are trying to stay in a range of 23-28 points, 28 points to stay in a blue dot day, you do whatever you can to eat as much as you can for as few points as you can. This is my list of my favorite zero point foods!

Berries

All berries are zero point foods, and when you get strawberries and blueberries in season, they literally taste like candy. Eating a whole bowl of something that tastes like candy, for zero points, is a major win! Also, they help to bulk up breakfast, for no extra points.

Eggs

One of the complaints folks have with Weight Watchers Freestyle is how sick they get of eating eggs. Eggs are zero points, and that means I eat them with everything. I have eggs with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s been six months, and I’m still not sick of them.

Also, eggs and avocado is my favorite combination of all time.

Crazy Richard’s 100% Pure Peanut Butter Powder

I wrote about how skeptical I was about powdered peanut butter, in an earlier post, but I am a changed woman! One of the best things about Crazy Richard’s 100% Pure Peanut Butter Powder is that one tablespoon is zero points. That’s right, over a tablespoon (after adding water) of peanut butter for ZERO points! This particular brand is just peanuts, so I’d advise you to add a little salt, and the next thing on the list.

You can buy this in the health food section of your local grocery store, or here on Amazon.

Kirkland Hazelnut Spread with Cocoa

So, this Hazelnut Spread is essentially a lower point version of Nutella. And I know that Nutella is essentially just frosting, marketed as a breakfast food, but it’s also a decadent indulgence. Granted for zero points, you only get 1/4 of a teaspoon, but when that 1/4 of a teaspoon is mixed with your tablespoon of powdered peanut butter you’ve got yourself an amazing zero point treat!

You can buy this at Cotsco, or here on Amazon.

Lily’s Chocolate All Natural Premium Baking Chips, Dark Chocolate

You can eat 13 of these chocolate chips for zero points. These are not a snacking chocolate though, eating them one by one as a quick replacement for chocolate does not work. They are naturally sweetened, and they are dark chocolate, so they can be a bit bitter. But if you add them to your pancakes or oatmeal, you won’t realize that they’re ‘healthy’ chocolate and your mind will thank you for treating yourself to chocolate for breakfast!

Also, you can add these chips to your peanut butter chocolate hazelnut dip, for an even MORE decadent zero point snack! No joke, sometimes I will make this dip, and just eat it by the spoonful. I also like to cut up my protein bars into dippers and scoop this dip up with them.

I’ve only seen this available at Amazon, though you can check your local health food store.

Bananas

On the old Weight Watchers plan, bananas cost points. On the new Freestyle, they are free! I love bananas, anyway, but I’ll be honest I love them a little bit more as a zero point food. They make smoothies sweeter, and they make breakfast heartier.

Bananas are great!

All the Veggies and Fruit

Sometimes I’ll pack a bowl full of veggies, top them with eggs, and I’m set. And they are all zero points, aside from avocados. Freakin delicious avocados cost points, 5 points for 1/2! But every other fruit and veggie I’ve come across so far, has been zero points. I’ve eaten more fruits and veggies this year than I did all of last year!

Do you have any favorite zero point foods? Or zero calorie, if you are a calorie counter?

    So points equal calories? I get confused because eggs are 0 points but 50 calories.
    I am currently counting calories (1300 per day) and exercising every single day of the week. Walking is my exercise of choice right now.
    In fact, I have set a goal to walk every single day for a mimimum of 30 minutes (but trying to get two miles PLUS per day) this summer.
    I am on day eight and still going.

    Also, I need to get to Costco for that spread.

      So apparently after 2010, the points had nothing to do with calories. Now it’s a whole formula based on calories, sugar, fiber, and protein. I’ve tried calories and it just doesn’t work for me. It’s too much to do for some reason. But my brother did calories and lost 80 pounds or so, getting in the best shape of his life. It must just be a mindset thing.

      I am a huge advocate for walking. In the past I’ve lost weight with diet and walking as my only form of exercising. And it forces you to go outside and look around, and breathe in fresh air, which is always a good thing.

    My favorite zero point foods are definitely strawberries and pineapple. In season they do feel so sweet and delicious. I don’t really like eggs so I can’t say I eat many of them but I will use them now and then to bulk up a meal or to make my 1 point quiche recipe.

      As a vegetarian, I don’t think I could be successful on this plan without eggs. I love strawberries but I have a hard time keeping them stocked in this house. The other day I bought two containers and between me and my son we polished the first off in one day! I also love pineapple, but I can only it a small bit of it a time. If I eat too much, it stings my tongue.
