This might be a bit much to ask, but would anyone mind posting the list of foods allowed in this diet?

catsmother Sat 06-Aug-05 12:23:33

Oh gosh, here goes:

All fruit and vegetables (not fruit juice, if you drink this you have to point it, though I blitz fruits in a blender for same effect, with fibre !. Not dried fruit, agin, you have to point this. And, rather obviously, not processed potato, like deep fried or mashed with butter, though you can make very good "chips" & wedges with the 1 cal oil spray)
All meats - again, not processed, so no sausages, reconstituted stuff or bought burgers .... but you can make meatballs & home-made burgers with very lean mince. Choose lean cuts if possible. Cut off fat !!
All poultry - chicken, turkey, duck.
All fish, including shellfish - not processed. Tinned fish in brine, water or tomato sauce.
Tea, coffee, water, skimmed milk, soya milk, low sugar squash, diet drinks @ 1 cal per 100ml or less.
Sugar free cereals - e.g. shredded wheat, porridge, weetabix, cornflakes, rice crispies etc.
Rice cakes
Crispbread
Artificial sweetener
Salt, pepper, vinegar, mint sauce, apple sauce, passata, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, herbs, spices, stock cubes, gravy granules (I think), lemon / lime juices, marmite, mustard, tabasco, teriyaki sauce, thai fish sauce, vanilla essence
Low fat yoghurt / fromage frais
Low fat soft cheese
Cottage Cheese
Eggs
Quark (I think)
Rice
Polenta
Couscous
Pearl barley
Beans (e.g. kidney, cannellini, baked beans in tomato)
Pasta (not filled)
Semolina
Sugar free jelly
Noodles
Rice noodles
Pop corn, air popped
Buckwheat
Bulghar wheat
Quinoa
Pulses
Lentils

Think that's more or less it, but if you enjoy cooking you can make a surprising no. of recipes.

I lost 8.5 lbs in 1st 2 weeks and that was with using the extra 21 points you're allowed for "incidentals" to treat myself to rather a lot of chocolate instead !

pineneedle Sat 06-Aug-05 12:45:36

Wow, thank you very much for this, Catsmother.

And well done too - thats amazing for two weeks WITH chocolate .

Got a bit of time to do recipes at the moment, so should be able to give it a go.

Top tips! Thanks, Dior.

can you eat as much of the foods on the list as you like?

PeachyClair Sun 07-Aug-05 14:27:05

Only at meals, (3 a day) and only until you are full, in between you can snack on fruit and veg ONLY (and WeightWatchers say that cup of tea / coffee with skimmed milk is OK)

Gillian76 Sun 07-Aug-05 14:33:52

Dior, do you know how much the book of menu plans costs at meetings?

Was looking on ebay, but I think they always go for ridiculous prices on there!

wendymia Fri 17-Mar-17 11:17:09

Thank you for that I was surprised that weight watcher yougurt we're on the list also cornflakes and rice crispies

Maisiemoo123 Sun 23-Apr-17 12:43:30

Hi is pasatta free on no count

LynseyWW Fri 16-Jun-17 11:44:49

Please discount previous posts as some are very old and out of date and incorrect. Cornflakes and rice crispies are most definitely not on it as they are not wholewheat sugar free cereals. Some Passatas are free - you need to use common sense and check ingredient listings - if the item states it is 100% tomatoes then yes it is free but if there are added ingredients (oils, herbs that you dont know the amounts of etc) then you will have to point.

Surely crisps and savoury snacks are not allowed are they?

Strongnan Wed 12-Jul-17 09:03:15

Hello

According to the list for weight watchers no count it says crisps and savoury snacks they are not allowed are they?

MakeMineADoubleGin Wed 12-Jul-17 09:07:25

Ignore the earlier list strongnan that's from 2005 so it's very out of date.

The list of no-count foods are as LyndseyWW posted smile

scoopmuckanddizzyrollytoo Tue 25-Jul-17 22:19:47

Crisps and nuts!! lovely 😃

thegreedyoinker Thu 03-Aug-17 16:44:41

The crisp and nuts bit is just the catagory heading...like dairy or meat or fish...the list underneath is the item that is No Count ..ie popcorn
