What is the New Weight Watchers Points Plan
The new Weight Watchers Points plan is a simplified and flexible program that helps you lose weight and improve your health by eating foods that are high in protein and low in sugar and saturated fat. Unlike the previous Personal Points plan, the new plan is the same for everyone (unless you are diabetic), which means that a food that has 3 points for you will also have 3 points for anyone else.
On the new plan, you will get a daily and a weekly allowance of points that you can use on any food you want. The amount of points you get is based on your gender, age, weight, height and other factors. You can also earn extra points by doing physical activities. Every food has a point value, which is calculated by looking at its calories, protein, fat and fiber content. Foods that are higher in protein and lower in fat will have fewer points than foods that are high in sugar and saturated fat.
The new plan also gives you a list of zero-point foods, which are foods that you can eat without using any of your points. These include fruits, vegetables (except starchy ones like potatoes and corn), eggs, chicken breast, turkey breast, fish, shellfish, tofu, tempeh, beans, lentils, yogurt and more. You can eat these foods freely, but you should still pay attention to your hunger cues and portion sizes.
How to Order from Cafe Yumm on the New Weight Watchers Points Plan
Cafe Yumm offers a variety of dishes that can fit into the new Weight Watchers Points plan, as long as you make some smart choices and modifications. Here are some general tips on how to order from Cafe Yumm:
Choose a bowl or a wrap over a sandwich or a salad. Bowls and wraps are more filling and satisfying than sandwiches and salads, because they contain more protein and fiber from the rice, beans and Yumm Sauce. They also have fewer points than sandwiches and salads, because they have less bread and cheese.
Choose brown rice or quinoa over jasmine rice or noodles. Brown rice and quinoa are whole grains that have more fiber and nutrients than jasmine rice or noodles. They also have fewer points than jasmine rice or noodles, because they have less calories and carbs.
Choose black beans or edamame over red beans or tempeh. Black beans and edamame are zero-point foods on the new plan, which means they don't use any of your points. They are also high in protein and fiber, which help you feel full and satisfied. Red beans and tempeh are not zero-point foods on the new plan, because they have more calories and fat than black beans and edamame. They also have more points than black beans and edamame.
Choose original or chipotle Yumm Sauce over jalapeÃo sesame salsa or ginger Asian sauce. Original or chipotle Yumm Sauce are lower in sugar and sodium than jalapeÃo sesame salsa or ginger Asian sauce. They also have fewer points than jalapeÃo sesame salsa or ginger Asian sauce.
Choose deluxe toppings over cheese or sour cream. Deluxe toppings include avocado, diced tomatoes, black olives, cilantro and green onions. They add flavor and freshness to your bowl or wrap without adding too many points. Cheese or sour a474f39169
