Weight Watchers frozen meals come in a wide variety of choice which means there are likely many meals that even picky dieters will enjoy. However, while these meals are extremely convenient for people who have busy schedules, some wonder if a diet based solely on reheated frozen meals is even healthy.
All Weight Watchers Frozen Meals are below 400 calories and most range from 7 to 9 Weight Watchers Plus Points. While the low calories and low points may seem like the perfect combination for optimum weight loss, many experts agree that in order for these meals to be part of a healthy diet, those using the meals would need to supplement the meals with other food items.
Part of the reason that this is necessary is because of the low calorie count. If a dieter were to solely rely on three or even four frozen diet meals per day, they would only be consuming about 1200 to 1300 calories. While this will initially result in weight loss, it is too low for sustained weight loss, as the body will see the deficit as being too low and will adapt to prevent starvation. Adding healthy vegetables and fruits to the meals can help to up the calorie count a bit, so that the person will still lose weight but won’t suffer from hunger and deprivation.
Registered dietitian Karen Collins also points out that adding fruits and vegetables is a must, since the Weight Watchers Frozen Meals alone do not provide the recommended five servings of fruits and veggies per day. Adding salads and snacking on fruits between meals is a good way to ensure a healthy, balanced diet. Aside from these factors, the frozen meals are really helping people to stay on track when it comes to weight loss. They are affordable, easy to prepare and best of all, teach proper portion control so that dieters can adjust their eating habits even when they are not using the ready-made meals.
