This list has been modified to only include vegan Weight Watchers options.
The Weight Watchers site doesn’t include information exclusively for vegan Weight Watchers. When I transitioned to vegan while on Weight Watchers, it took me some time to find the right vegan foods to eat.
I relied more heavily on processed vegan foods. Prior to embarking on a vegan lifestyle, I rarely consumed processed foods. I found I was no longer losing weight.
I realized I needed to isolate the vegan Weight Watchers zero point foods to incorporate regularly into my diet. And to get back to cooking with minimally processed foods.
Per Weight Watchers, “foods designated as ZeroPoint foods were chosen because they help form the foundation for a healthy eating pattern. Plus, they’re are much less likely to be overeaten than other foods…”
I created this list to ensure I held fast to a truly healthy eating pattern, which is a plant-based, whole foods diet prepared mostly at home.
