With Weight Watchers simple but oh-so-smart points system, it’s possible to fit just about anything you can think of into your diet, with the focus being as much on the item itself as the portion and frequency with which you eat it. For those that have been using the Weight Watchers system for awhile, calculating points becomes second nature, as does knowing how many points their favorite foods are valued at.
Something a friend of mine mentioned keeping tabs of as well is a snack list of what she calls ‘point fillers’. These are foods that only carry a value of 3 points or less – foods she can easily enjoy at the end of the day if she has saved a few points for such a purpose, or finds that she has a few to spare. And her list just happens to have quite a bit of candy on it, which excited me to say the least! I was thrilled to hear she’s still able to enjoy some sweet favorites without making too many concessions the rest of the day. As for the candy she eats most often? Chocolate Tootsie Pops. At just 60 calories a pop, and one point apiece, she can eat one just about every day of the week. Pretty sweet, huh?
Inspired by my candy-loving friend, we will be sharing other candy ideas for all of you that are following the Weight Watchers plan as well. Keep an eye on the Blair Candy Twitter and Blair Candy Facebook for candy favorites and their respective point value. We’ll be keeping the focus on candies that would fit on my friend’s list of ‘point fillers’ – candies that won’t ‘eat up’ a lot of your points, but will satisfy your craving and make eating smarter all the sweeter!
