5 Fast Food Meals that Fit into Your Weight Watchers Plan

People say New Years is the time many want to lose weight. I think the summer months are as we are out and about more and looking to wear swimsuits, slinky dresses and other summer outfits. But having the kids home for the summer makes watching what we eat a challenge. I know myself that fast food is consumed way more it eh summer months because we are in the city more, at the mall or just looking for a quick bite.
Weight Watchers has become a very popular diet that has been endorsed by many celebrities, such as Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson. They’re infamous for being the diet that you can eat anything you want as long as you account for the points plus that you will be using! Sometimes when you’re out and about and you get hungry, you’re forced to pick something up at a fast food restaurant and it may not be ideal for weight loss. It is possible to make better choices when you’re eating out but it takes some will power to resist from those delicious french fries! lol Here’s a few meal ideas I’ve compiled that are 10 points plus or less! Let’s get into them!
Fast food
1. Wendys: 4 piece Chicken Nugget and Small Chili = 9 Points Plus A big part of weight watchers is switching portion sizes, so if you’re used to getting a 10 piece chicken nugget and fries, this will probably be a bit of an adjustment for you! It’s all about getting your body to fit the correct meal plan and getting it used to eating less and getting full faster. Try drinking a lot of water before you eat to help make you feel fuller.
2. McDonald’s: Regular Hamburger and Side Salad w/ Low Fat Italian Dressing = 9 Points Plus If you’re a cheese type of person, you’ll have to be willing to splurge on a couple more points for that piece of cheese! I find this meal very satifying, it’s a good balance of bread and veggies to fill me up. I think that the low fat italian dressing is absolutely delicious as well! It has a very peppery seasoned flavor and it really compliments the salad well.
3. Chipotle: Kids Meal 2 Chicken Soft Tacos w/ Cheese and Lettuce = 9 Points Plus The kids meal soft taco portion is perfectly portioned if you’re on weight watchers! You get two tacos and you could also add fajita veggies and salsa if you’d like for just one additional point, putting you at that 10 point mark! I personally love chipotle and I love the fact that I can still get it while trying to lose weight! It is also served with your choice mandarin oranges, valencia oranges, or grapes which are 0 additional points! Refrain from eating those chips everyone!
4. Pizza Hut: 1 Piece of Cheese Thin n Crispy Pizza w/ a homemade Salad OR 6 traditional boneless wings = 9 Points Plus each meal I absolutely LOVE pizza! It is probably one of my favorite meals and I could honestly probably eat it every single day! If you cut down to just one slice paired with a big salad on the side it’s a great meal to satisfy the craving you may have for pizza without ruining your diet! Pizza Hut (and most other pizza places) also have wings these days as well! You can get away with eating about 6 traditional buffalo wings, but make sure to skip the ranch or bleu cheese dressings!
5. Taco Bell: 1 Bean Burrito OR 2 Soft Tacos = 10 Points Taco Bell is one of my weaknesses when it comes to fast food, it’s a great meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even their famous tag line…Fourthmeal. SometimesTaco Bell is a big craving of mine and I’m so glad that there a couple different varieties I can get and still stay within my points range and on my diet! Try to refrain from adding any sour cream or anything additional to these meals and you will be just fine!
If you find yourself wanting to pick up a fast food meal and you are on weight watchers, or any other diet for that matter, remember it is is possible…just don’t go too crazy! Everyone deserves a bit of a little cheat meal every once in a while!

  3. I have managed to stay away from fast food joints this year-but it is good to know that I can go and indulge at Wendys or Chipoltes once in a while! Thank you for the information.

  4. Yum. I'm not a fast food eater really. The odd time we grab some but my tummy doesnt agree with it (gallbladder mostly) but I'm happy to hear it can fit into a WW plan!

  5. Masshole Mommy says

    I don't love to eat fast food, but it's nice to know that there are options when you have to. No one should have to mess their diet plan up for the day just because they have to eat fast food.

  6. Wow there are so many options when you're on Weight Watchers. I definitely like those thin crust pizzas.

    We go to Wendy's often because they have some things that I can eat and get away with it being okay. I love the frosty's. Weight watchers was something I had done a while back.

  9. It's hard to stay away from fast food when traveling, so it's nice to know that there are some options that won't kill your diet. We really do love the Wendy's chili!

  10. This is the perfect post for me. I am trying to eat healthier but i often end up eating fast food. I will have to print off this list and keep it in my car.

  11. I get the two tacos at Taco Bell whenever that is where we end up eating. It is not my favorite place but I think those tacos are pretty good and I know they are reasonable as far as calories.

  12. We don't do fast food at all, but I know a couple people on WW that would be glad to know they can eat out and still stick to their plan

  17. Jennifer Williams says

    I had no idea any weight loss meal plan would allow some of these. I usually stick with salads when I go to fast food and get the dressing on the side.

  18. Lisa Rios says

    I love this post and it perfectly suits me so much. I always prefer healthy foods for my family, but I always find it hard to control myself from eating fast foods. You have given some great information about fast food, which is going to very much helpful for all fast food lovers.

  19. those are good suggestions. just replace the pop and stick with water! pop is absolutely terrible for you.

  20. It's interesting to see the Weight Watchers points on fast food. I don't eat fast food anymore since there aren't a lot of healthy choices.

  21. Florence C says

    Thanks for sharing. I like all the options.

  22. As much as I avoid fast food, sometimes in a pinch we do end up making a run through the drive thru. It's great to know that I can stick to my diet during these times.
