About Vegan Weight Watchers

Welcome to the Vegan Weight Watchers blog! I add multiple posts each week specifically written for people using the Weight Watchers program to lose or maintain weight while following a vegan lifestyle. Posts include PointsPlus friendly vegan recipes, product and restaurant reviews, as well as interesting vegan tidbits from around the world and across the web. I am a Weight Watchers employee writing about my personal experience on the plan. The views expressed are my own and do not reflect the views of Weight Watchers.

My story:
My journey with Weight Watchers started in June 2009. I lost 25 lbs and became a lifetime member that October. I have since been able to maintain my weight loss while sticking to the Weight Watchers program.

My husband has struggled with gastrointestinal discomfort since we met in 2003. Following an endoscopy, no diagnosis was reached for my husband, and I was shocked when his doctor said he would be on medication indefinitely. After watching several documentaries and doing research online, I proposed trying out a vegan lifestyle (which almost instantly cured his lifelong stomach issues). Due to my experience with the Weight Watchers program, I knew I would have to be careful to stick to my daily PointsPlus values – it is a popular misconception that vegans only eat lettuce and are rail thin. However, I was disappointed about the lack of resources online for fellow Vegan Weight Watchers.

I hope to help keep your weight loss journey interesting while sticking to a plant-based vegan lifestyle. I look forward to interacting and sharing with everyone!

    Hello Em,

    I started weight watchers about 2 1/2 weeks ago and have lost 4 lbs. so far. I am glad that I found this site because although I am a vegetarian, I am not a vegan yet. I am trying. My daughter is vegan and she is helpful to me, but she doesn’t need weight watchers and I know that I have to keep my diet varied, interesting, and within points. I am not familiar with using products like tempeh, but have used tofu in some dishes.

    I truly appreciate this site as a source of support for me because my meeting group members are not vegetarian or vegans. The recipes on this site are not only tasty and nutrituous, but I am learning a great deal about making vegan dishes. They are easy to follow and I appreciate that the points are already figured out. As a carb lover, I gained weight being vegetarian because it was a great excuse to pig out on all my favorites. Hopefully, I’ll stay on track and enjoy it at the same time. Thank you so much for this site. I have made it my homepage so I don’t miss any recipes. Best, Jane
