Avocado for Healthy Fat and Fiber
While avocado is not a zero point food on the new WW Program for 2023, it is lower in points than it used to be.
WW hack! A tip for avocado on Weightwatchers is to weigh it on a food scale. Often putting in the grams will give you a lower points value than if you estimate “half an avocado” which will be higher.
This recipe will be lower in points if you use ground chicken breast. Talk about a winner of a meal.
Avocado is a great food for losing weight because it keeps you satisfied with healthy fat and also has fiber to make it filling. Plus, it’s creamy and delicious.

Low Carb Mexican Food for Weight Loss
Do you need to eat a low carb diet to lose weight? No.
I ate all types of foods while losing 100+ pounds. But some people find they do better with lower carbs. While I don’t recommend a Keto diet while doing WW because it’s so extreme, a lower carb diet can be beneficial.
WW has now also added a diabetic plan which is low in carbs and keeps blood sugar steady.

Tips for Cooking Lean Ground Turkey Breast
To keep the points and calories as low as possible, use lean ground turkey or chicken breast.
Here are some helpful tips for working with this lean ground meat:
- Buy ground turkey or chicken breast. (Not just ground turkey or chicken, which can be quite high in fat.) It should be 98% fat free to count as a zero point meat.
- If you can’t found ground breast, you can use other chicken or turkey (or even very lean ground beef) but keep in mind it will be higher in points, fat, and calories. This typically adds 1 extra point per ounce.
- This is a very lean meat so it will take a bit more work to break apart when sautéing. Adding a bit of water or broth to the pan helps prevent sticking and make it easier to work with.
- Try adding a bit of soy or Worcestershire sauce to improve flavor and color.
- Some people are off-put by the smell of very lean ground turkey or chicken breast while it cooks. Adding chicken broth, soy or Worcestershire sauce helps with this.
- Lean ground chicken and turkey breast is expensive! Watch for it to go on sale.
- You can make your own at how by grinding raw chicken or turkey breast in the food processor or with a KitchenAid mixer.
- If cost or flavor is a factor for you, try using a mixture of one package of ground lean chicken and one package ground chicken breast. The points will be a bit higher but not as much. The fat from one package is enough to flavor both but you still have reduced the calories and points.
- Sautee vegetables along with the meat to add flavor and moisture. Finely chopped onion, celery, mushrooms, zucchini or green pepper all work for this.
- You can always use lean ground beef and just count the points. Life is too short to eat anything you don’t truly enjoy.
