Haven't really tried any myself except the occassional frozen ready meal. Don't think any of my local shops stock WW products, but I'd order them online if anybody has any recommendations?

They are all a rip off. The crisps have the same pp as a bag of walkers french fries, the popcorn has the same as boots shapers popcorn etc and the cake bars, well if you cut stuff up small enough it is going to have a low points value. I quite like the Greek style yogurts they sell in the shopssnd the ready sliced cheese is bland but useful.

I recommend doing your homework on what you can get in the supermarket or make yourself before spending the money.

The frozen puddings are quite nice. The vegetable soup is puke! The wine is ok...

Thanks ladies, by the sounds of it I don't think I'll bother! Doing my big shop today, so have been scouring the internet for ideas. Thanks for the tip re. French Fries. I'm learning that it's not so much eating less as eating differently.

Don't usually by WW own bread except occasionally nann bread and wraps.

Can I also add

Crumpets- the same as a regular crumpet, just thinner so doesn't stay as fluffy when you toast it
Wraps- just smaller than regular ones. Absolutely fine and harmless.

I think I'd prefer a WW crumpet by the sounds of it as I prefer mine very crispy as opposed to flabby. Weirdly they don't come up on the WW app. How many PP are they?

2 points each. They are 1/3 of the size and come in packs of 4. Of course they cost the same as a 6 pack of normal ones.

No surprise there re. the price!

generally i wouldn't bother

savoury...all ready meals seem high in points and the few i've tried are not filling compared to homemade..couldn't eat their squeeze and stir soups...foul things...their crisps have a strange dry texture and are a bit sweet ..their beans are horrible

sweet things all seem to be oversweet. Boxed sweets have a funny bitter aftertaste. Cakes are tiny. Their bars are ok but don't give a chocolate hit imo but i like the orange crisp ones and the choc chip cereal ones. The popcorn keeps my mouth busy for 2pp but is 69p a bagshock

other...wraps / bread are convenient and often in the reduced section

mazzledazzle..asda smartprice are your friend..thin normal crumpets 2pp

The chocolate digestives are good - they are an excellent substitute for McVities and hold their shape when dunked - good taste and texture. I like the cereal bars but there are others for low pp, Alpen ones are good if on offer. I like their greek style yoghurts too.

Those wafer things with marshmallow and jam in, sorry cant remember the name, they are lovely.

Pound shops are good for weight watchers stuff

I love their yogurts!

Nellysgirl Thu 20-Mar-14 14:23:32

I really like the ready made quiche and tinned spaghetti!
Oh and the sweet chilli crisps yum yum! Oh and chicken noodle soup and it's only one pp! Xxx

I quite like the lemon cake (2 pts), the sundaes (3pts), the steam and serve chicken chop suey (5 pts) but I agree that they are pricey. Lots of the Morrisons healthy range have pro points on. The cassava crunch crisps are tasty. I esp like the sweet chilli ones. They come in multi packs and are 2 points
