Vegan Weight Watchers – Introduction

Welcome to the Vegan Weight Watchers blog! I will be adding multiple posts each week specifically written for people using the Weight Watchers program to lose or maintain weight while following a vegan lifestyle. Posts will include PointsPlus friendly vegan recipes, product and restaurant reviews, as well as interesting vegan tidbits from around the world and across the web.

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 (more on this later…). However, I was disappointed about the lack of resources online for fellow Vegan Weight Watchers.

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

  1. I like the valuable information you supply in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and take a look at once more here frequently. I am relatively certain I’ll be told many new stuff proper right here! Good luck for the following!

  2. I believe that avoiding highly processed foods may be the first step to be able to lose weight.

    They might taste very good, but highly processed foods currently have very little
    nutritional value, making you take more only to have enough power to get with the day.
    When you are constantly taking in these foods,
    transitioning to grain and other complex carbohydrates will help you to have more power while eating less.
    Great blog post.
