Weight watchers recipes breakfast – Losing weight in today’s day and age can be quite a daunting task because we’re surrounded by a lot of fast food restaurants that mostly offer food which will make us gain weight and because of the fast way of life in the present we succumb to our hunger and eat anything.
It’s not just unhealthy for our bodies but most of the food will increase your weight significantly if you aren’t careful and pick what and where you eat.
Losing weight alone with watching what you eat isn’t a picnic as well so lately there’s been an innovative trend which is made as kind of a game with points you can play and it’s called weight watchers.
The way it works is by having a certain amount of points for the day which you can spend on food and different foods have different points, so once you’ve reached your point limit you can’t eat any more that day.
The points are assigned to individuals based on their age, weight, height and gender so that the weight loss is in the safe margins which is about 2 pounds per week.
Here are a few recipes that have 3 or less points and you can really enjoy eating.
