This week I am bringing you this great free printable Weight Watchers Weekly Points Tracker. This printable is meant to help you easily keep track of how many points you are using each day and week. Even with the new SmartPoints system, there are extra flexible points you can use each week. That means some days you may go over your daily total, but at the end of the week, this will help you to see if your total is still in line.
Weight Watchers Weekly Point Tracker
I love printing and using this because it helps me to track a few things that are pretty important to my overall success. The Weight Watchers diet program is an excellent way to improve your health. It’s not just about losing pounds or inches. The program, especially the new Smart Points program, is all about understanding what you are putting into your body and how it will affect your health. Points values can be figured on literally any food product, but that doesn’t make that food a good choice always. Before you print your weekly point tracker, check out some tips for how to evaluate this each week.
Before you print your weekly point tracker, check out some tips for how to evaluate this each week. This printable contains a daily section for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. You have a place to log your weekly points allowed, daily points allowance and even to track inches or pounds lost each week. While the spaces are small, you can use them to either write in the points of your meal or as a food journal to list out each food item and their point value.
Watch for excessive points used on specific days or meals. While it is common for most people to eat more at one meal each day, sometimes you will find that your extra points being used are all around one meal and that could be detrimental. Your points should be spread out fairly evenly throughout the day so you aren’t hungry and overindulging on snacks or at one particular meal. While we list 3 meals and a snack, for many it is better to have 5 small meals throughout the day. When your body isn’t feeling hungry or ravenous between meals you are less likely to overindulge on bad choices.
Evaluate how many processed foods you are eating. Processed foods tend to have much higher points values. Things like fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and lean protein to fuel your body. Things like cookies, crackers, pasta and cereals may be convenient, but you pay the price by eating more calories for smaller portions. This results in your body being hungry faster, and you eating more than what is allowable in your points for each day or week.
Check for liquid points in things like coffee, soft drinks, and other items. I love my coffee, but if I add creamers and sweeteners on a regular basis, then drink 3-4 cups per day I can easily burn through up to 10 points just on coffee! Look at what you are drinking, not just what you are eating. Liquid calories and points add up faster than you would expect.
This Weight Watchers weekly points tracker is an excellent way to keep up with what you are eating and how you are doing on the Classic, Points Plus or Smart Points program.
