Eating out on Weightwatchers

If you're anything like me eating out will be the highlight of your week. If I had the money - and didn't mind getting to 30 stone - i'd eat out every night. Many people dread being asked out for dinner as they feel it's hard to be in control of their food if in a restaurant. Don't fear as you'll still be able to enjoy a meal with friends if you're on weightwatchers by following a few simple tips.

001. Stick to diet soft drinks. Wine might be a perfect choice to drink alongside any meal but it's not very kind to your head the next day. I always have diet coke if i'm out for dinner during the week as it still feels like you're treating yourself and it's only 0 propoints. You might as well use the propoints you'll waste on wine to feed your hungry belly in my opinion.

002. Never go out for dinner absolutely starving if you can help it. This will cause  you to over order. Half the time you won't actually need all the food you order but if you're anything like me  you'll eat EVERYTHING. I  hate wasting food when i'm out for dinner - someone say squeaky bum - so i'll scoff everything down until I feel sick. Not the best thing if you're trying to lose weight.

003. This book can be a god send. While it doesn't have every single food establishment listed it gives it a good shot. Have a little flick through it and plan what you're going to eat so you can leave enough points to cover it. Nothing worse than coming home and realising you've eaten a 28 propoint dinner by accident....

004. Use your common sense when ordering. Tomato based sauces tend to be so much better than creamy ones. Cheese although it likes to lure you in is actually the devil when it comes to weight loss. If you desperately want a dessert, why not ask your dining partner if they want to go halves.

005. Finally get your backside moving. Build up your activity points the day before your meal so you can order a starter without feeling guilty. Sometimes life's too short to not throw caution to the wind.


  1. Nando's is the best! You can have chicken AND chips for like 12 points!

  2. Such a great post Sophie! And Nando's is also a good example to use as it's a great place to go for WW, it's all listed on the app and there are some tasty low point options.

  3. Nice advice. However, I still think clean eating is better than any diet.

  4. I wish I was reasonable when eating out, but I tend to get carried away. Maybe it's time for me to use your WW knowledge and apply it to me every day life?

  8. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd definitely
    appreciate it.
