The #1 Reason You’re Not Losing Weight On Weight Watchers Freestyle!


since weight watchers freestyle was
released I have noticed that there are
really two different sides to the weight
watchers freestyle team people either
love it or they hate it most of the
people hate it because they are not
finding success with the freestyle plan
today I am here to tell you the biggest
mistake you’re making on weight watchers
freestyle and why you are not losing
weight hello my friends welcome back to
my channel my name is Breanna and on my
channel we can find all sorts of
lifestyle related content primarily
based on my weight loss journey go ahead
hit the little subscribe button down
there for all sorts of other informative
content so like I said there seems to be
two little camps of Weight Watchers
freestyle there either loving it or you
are hating it and odds are you’re hating
it because you haven’t quite figured out
how to lose weight on Weight Watchers
freestyle weight lovers freestyle
introduced a list of over 200 foods that
are zero smart points and with that
comes its own challenges with 200 zero
smart point foods you gain a lot of
freedom but you also gain some new
challenges for starters all of us got
docked seven smart points and for those
of us that were at the minimum of thirty
smart points before now we’re at an even
lower minimum of 23 which seems
outrageous when you see how high some
smart points values are for given foods
but with all the zeros from our point
foods available it is still very very
easy to make a day’s worth of food that
fits into your smart points budget
personally speaking I am loving the
Freestyle plan because it is helping me
to incorporate very healthy clean Whole
Foods into my diet on a daily basis and
because I’m eating those particular
foods I don’t have to quote pay for them
by using up my smart points it is a
brilliant brilliant plan but for some
you are struggling and if you’re
struggling odds are that’s why you’re
here so I’m here to tell you why you are
likely not losing weight now I’m a
member of various Weight Watchers
communities I’m a community member on
Instagram I am on several Facebook
groups and so I see people’s posts all
the time about their frustration with
the free style program
and people will say things like I am
eating so many zero smart point foods
I’m staying within my 23 smart points
but I’m my weight is coming down slowly
or my weight is going up when I read
that I can’t help but think there is one
major factor that they are forgetting in
terms of smart points are you ready for
this little truth bomb zero smart points
does not mean zero calories I’m gonna
let that sink in for a second think
about it at the end of the day no matter
what diet plan you’re following you’re
only going to lose weight if the
calories you take in is less then the
calories you burn in a day that is the
simple mathematical equation that equals
weight loss Weight Watchers has done
some things to take nutritional values
into consideration which is amazing and
totally the way we should be eating but
at the end of the day its calories in
versus calories out going back to what I
said
zero smart points does not mean zero
calories and that is how it’s always
been but when the only zero smart points
foods were fruits and vegetables it was
a lot easier to fill up on fruits and
vegetables because for most fruits and
vegetables the calorie count is so low
that it’s practically like eating zero
calorie food right not totally like
don’t don’t take this as fat but it’s
it’s pretty much the same but now we’ve
added things in like eggs like chicken
like fat-free Greek yogurt like corn and
beans these are all foods that are so
very good for us but they do not come
with the same calorie price tag as
fruits and vegetables my friends they
are much more calorie dense so the
biggest mistake you are making is by
eating too many zeroes smart point foods
exclusively and then going and eating
all of your daily smart points do you
remember when Weight Watchers used to
preach always eat all of your daily
smart points back when chicken and fish
and everything counted as smart points
that’s because it was really easy to
send your body into starvation mode or
not eat enough calories if you didn’t
eat all of your smart points now that
all of these nutrient-dense foods that
used to cost us smart points are now
Oh smart points that is no longer the
case in case you didn’t know in order to
earn your little blue dot for the day
which is your healthy eating range you
can eat up to ten points less then your
daily smart points amount and still be
considered within your healthy eating
rate this is because you can get all of
the calories you need from zero smart
point foods therefore if you’re one of
those people that is having you know
four or five eggs for breakfast with
lots of vegetables which is very good
vegetables very very good don’t get me
wrong the lesson you should learn from
this is not to eat less produce trust me
that’s not where you’re making the
mistake eggs for breakfast giant salad
with chicken for lunch Greek yogurt
isn’t you know a cup of Greek yogurt for
a snack salmon for dinner oh so
delightful so good and so many calories
that you are not taking into
consideration on a daily basis I mean
quite frankly I could end this video
here that’s what you really need to know
zero smart points does not mean zero
calories but to put it into perspective
for you I’ve come up with a list of
calories for things that are zero smart
points or things that we make that are
low and smart points but maybe you don’t
think about the calories so here we go
for a little perspective first of all a
banana is roughly a hundred calories
just just so you know
so no eating three or four bananas in a
day please cuz that’s just not not gonna
help you eggs I can’t tell you how
ecstatic I was when eggs went zero
because I got so sick of just eating egg
whites that I started to pay two smart
points for an egg every single morning
and I was tired of it so the fact that
they went 2-0 is amazing but one egg can
range anywhere from 70 to 90 calories
they’re 90 for me because I buy the
Jumbo ones because my husband likes to
eat so 90 calories for one egg every
morning now I eat two eggs which is 180
calories that’s not including things
like the fat-free cheese that I put with
it and the two ingredient dough bagel
that I have with it in the morning
that is a substantial amount of calories
that if you’re not thinking about it
200 more calories just in your eggs
alone and that’s only two eggs chicken
is 185 calories for four ounces odds are
you’re eating a little bit more than 4
ounces in a serving anyway so you’re
probably talking over 200 calories for
chicken that you’re not taking into an
account black beans are a hundred
calories for half a cup corn is 80
calories for half a cup salmon for four
ounces of salmon is 230 calories good
fats good protein but still 230 calories
guys these are things we have to keep in
mind smoked salmon is a hundred calories
for three ounces of it I love that
smoked salmon is zero points oh my gosh
now here’s a kicker are you ready that
two ingredient dough that we all know
and love
the one part self-rising flour one part
fat free Greek yogurt mixture right that
quarter cup of flour is 100 calories 100
calories which doesn’t sound like much
but if you add the thirty three extra
calories lose the 33
yeah thirty to thirty three extra
calories for the yogurt you have a
hundred and thirty-two calories for your
three smart point two ingredient dough
now most people will be like a buffer
half a cup instead of six points you get
it for five if you make double the
amount but you’re also doubling the
amount of calories throwing in that
extra quarter cup of flour is going to
add another 100 calories basically what
I’m trying to get to here is calories
count there’s a reason that I have said
zero smart point foods this entire video
and not free foods there is no such
thing as a free food the only thing you
can consume for free is water the only
thing even coffee technically has like a
calorie R – so you know but you know
what I’m saying you get the point of
what I’m saying food is not free it’s
not there’s zero smart points and
they’re doing that to encourage us to
eat the right kind of foods but I’m
willing to bet that if you are
struggling to lose weight on weight
water’s freestyle odds are it is because
you are abusing the zero smart point
foods and eating far too many of them
paired with
if all of your daily smart points so
what if this is you what can you do well
what I would recommend doing is one of
two things you really have to tune in to
your hunger signals and if you are
eating all of these zero SmartPoint
foods and having a two to point dinner
or a zero point dinner that is great but
I need you to tune into your hunger
signals if you’re not hungry for a
dessert later don’t eat it just because
you have the points left no longer means
you have to eat the food you do not have
to zero out your daily points anymore
that is the joy of weight walkers
freestyle it has really truly taught me
that if you are not hungry you do not
have to eat so you can either keep doing
what you’re doing and leave some of your
smart points at the end of the day I
know somebody on instagram who talked
about how she actually only eats 18
points a day because of all of these
zero smart point foods that she consumes
so you really have to toy around with
what smart points value works for you if
you really want to overindulge so to
speak in the zero smart point foods the
other thing that you can do and this is
kind of my approach to it is eat smart
points with every meal like every
morning this is no joke almost every
single morning my breakfast has been two
eggs splash of egg whites for probably
ten or fifteen extra calories fat-free
cheese and chives all scrambled up that
is technically zero smart points what I
will always have with it is a two
ingredient dough bagel or biscuit I call
it because I just roll into a ball from
it me or fryer I don’t bother to shape
it into anything but that is three smart
points or if I’m having it as a brunch
I’ll make five smart points one on
behalf a cup of flour one maybe I’ll
throw an rx bar on it or I’ll make sure
that my snack is exclusively something
with smart points so I make sure that
throughout the day I am getting smart
points I might have a sandwich with my
pita bread which is only one smart point
and maybe I’ll put a smart point of mayo
or use not fat free cheese for a for a
couple points with my zero smart point
meat most of the time I will eat
something with some smart point value so
what that might end up doing is give
still giving me seven or eight maybe
even ten points to mess with at the end
of the day
special splurge but that’s not all 23 of
my points that I’m saving for a special
splurge you’re not going to lose weight
if that’s what you’re doing so that’s
just something to ponder if you want to
keep track of what you’re doing I highly
recommend actually writing down the
foods you’re eating including the zero
smart point foods we already tracked
these smart point foods with a numeric
value other than 0 but write down the
foods that you were eating that cost to
zero and look up the calorie counts
that’s something you could do another
thing you could do is measure the foods
that are 0 smart points so you’re not
eating an obscene amount of them make
sure your portions are still within your
control and how you’re having one
serving and not two or three servings of
something that is zero smart points you
get what I’m saying so there you have it
that is the number one mistake in my
opinion I don’t want any comments saying
but this is not my problem I know I’m
just saying that within my observation
of the Weight Watchers community this
seems to be a common complaint so I am
giving you an easy solution and this is
what I’m calling to your attention
most people are having this struggle
it’s a whole different story if your
struggle is but I don’t like any of the
zero smart point foods if you want that
one second solution to that it is suck
it up and eat them anyway but that’s a
story for another day
so that is my two cents on the most
common mistake people are making a
Weight Watchers freestyle let me know in
the comments below if you agree with me
or disagree with me and why what’s your
experience on Weight Watchers freestyle
are you finding it easy to strike that
balance do you have some our points left
over do you eat all of your points what
are your weight watchers or results
