Weight Watchers Points for Vegetables

When asked how to succeed with Weight Watchers, my first answer is, "Count points" followed quickly by, "And be sure to memorize points" for favorite foods. To help out with vegetables, here are the Weight Watchers points for common vegetables. I hope that readers find it a useful reference!

BRAND NEW! Now there's a reference list for fruit, too, I call it One-Point Fruit Servings for Weight Watchers

(For readers who don't follow Weight Watchers but are curious about the point system, here's a quick introduction. A point is assigned to a serving based on its calories, fat grams and fiber grams. The lower the calories, the lower the fat, the higher the fiber, the lower the points. A "zero point" food isn't without calories, it just has few enough calories and few enough fat grams and high enough fiber grams, to be considered as "no points". It's kind of a game but for many of us, the point system helps us focus on healthful food choices.)

Just wanted to say thank you for the fruit and vegetable point listings! I'm starting to use the WW points system (on my own) and your site was invaluable! Thanks again.

Thank you for the fruit & veggie lists! Invaluable resource on the road to good health:-)

Your lists are great. I've put on weight and am going back to my WW eating habits and your lists will make it easier.

Thank you so much for taking the time to figure all this out! I have wanted to try weight watchers but didn't want to pay the subscription. With doing a little research online to figure out my daily point allotment and this handy list of fruits & veggies, I think I can do it! THANK YOU!!!
