  • Weight Watchers IC Friendly

    Here's my 29 point WW day! Just thought it would be helpful for others either on or considering Weight Watchers. It works very well with the IC diet.

    Breakfast:
    3 eggwhites scrambled with 1/2c diced zucchini & yellow squash, 1T fat free feta cheese (Trader Joe's) cooked in pan with olive oil spray
    1/3c carrot juice & 2/3 c pear juice
    1/5 baguette from local bakery with thin spread of light Philly cream cheese (block)

    Lunch:
    2 mini baguettes (scraped out bread from center) with chicken salad (Valley Fresh canned chicken with 1/2t Marie's lite creamy ranch, 1T light Philly cream cheese (block) & finely chopped celery.
    1 pack of baby carrots

    Snack: 2 points worth of raw almonds (weighed on WW scale)

    Dinner:
    3 Trader Joe's taco shells, 1/3 cup Safeway Organics pinto beans (divided into 3 shells), with 1oz Trader Joe's lite mozzarella, 1/2oz lite Philly Cream cheese, shredded romaine lettuce
    1 mini-box of raisins (that small amount as part of a meal is ok for me.)

    Hi Kadi, I decided to go back to the old points system. I know it doesn't make any sense, but I just do better on it than the PointsPlus. Maybe because I can't eat any "free fruit"! The foods I eat went up in higher proportion than my daily PointsPlus went up even though I obviously don't eat much processed stuff because of IC. (If I eat more than a quarter of the weeklies my weight loss stalls.) Between what I have to do with IC, low sodium, low fat, and WW, my head spins sometimes...LOL!
    Pam



    Diagnosed with:
    IC September 2009 (symptoms are frequency all the time and some burning)
    Graves' Disease June 2006 (thyroid issue)
    Sleep Apnea February 2007
    IBS-C so long ago I can't remember
    HBP
    Total hysterectomy 2015 (pre-cancer)
    Meds/Treatments:
    CPAP Machine (for sleep apnea)
    Uribel
    Metoprolol ER
    Synthroid
    Linzess and Magnesium for IBS-C

    Love my furbaby, Turtle!

      Kadi,
      Thanks for posting this. It made me start to think about Weight Watchers more seriously. Might have to give it a try.

                    These were at a retreat center that bakes them fresh. (I was at a workshop yesterday). But, I often make the oatmeal cookies recipe that's inside the top of the round Quaker Oats canister.

                      I use the Quaker oats recipe in the box too! It really makes nice cookies. I sometimes add cashews when I make them.

                          Weight Watchers Food

                          Hey Ladies,

                          I'm also in WW and wondered if anyone is able to buy and eat any of their pre-packed foods or dinners.

                          Thanks!
                          God grant me the Serenity to get through each day and get home to my fur babies and my loving husband.

                            I'm not able to, but someone with a milder case of IC or less diet-sensitive might.

                              Hi Kadi~
                              I'm just courious as to what makes the weight watchers diet you sugest, IC Friendly? My Mother is alergic to Zucchini, yellow squah, fete cheese, olive oil/olive spray, all breads made with wheat, almond, and rice flours, almonds. pinto beans, motzerella cheese, rasins, romain lettuce, cream cheese, all store bought dressings, unless it's straight sunflower oil or safflower oil (not that great), and so many, many other foods you can't begin to imagine After reviewing the ingredients, it seems plain chicken and plain carrots are my Mothers only choice in this so called IC Friendly Weight Watchers program of yours. Not that my Mom can afford to loose any weight, as she lost 25 LBS she couldn't afford to lose to begin with in the first place doing the IC Diet from this site to. Just looking for options, but this seems to me to be something that has worked for you, wouldn't work for my Mom amd maybe many others, any thoughts or suggestions?
