When you are losing weight on the weight watchers diet, adding this Weight Watchers Fruit Salad to your meals or snacks is a great way to stay on track. Fruit and most veggies are zero Smartpoints when you eat them. In fact, the SmartPoints plan encourages you to eat fresh fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy pattern. Because 75% of Americans do not eat enough fruits and vegetables, all fruit and most vegetables have zero points.
However, when you add sugar, fruit syrup or juice, there will be points. Below, you can make this recipe with or without WW points. By adding the optional citrus dressing, you will only add 1 point to your snack. Find out what else you can eat for zero points on this Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods List.
Can I Eat Too Much Fruit?
Now, just because the fruit is zero point doesn’t mean they are magically calorie-free. If you are using fruit as a healthy snack, to bulk up a meal, or to tide you over, then you are doing it right. However, if you are just eating fruit because it’s “free” those calories will add up. This is why fruits and veggies have no SmartPoint, but smoothies do. Allow your weight loss and your hunger be your guide when it comes to the amount of fruit you eat.
