The Weight Watchers Points Formula
I did Medifast once but when I went off I gained it all back so quickly. Plus, I'm food obsessed. I am sad to say that I am starting again on Medifast tomorrow, and I am not sure how long I will last, or how I will do.

Mix Velveeta and vegetable stock together, simmering on the stove over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently until blended. Drop in broccoli and chilies, then cook for another 15 minutes. If you're going to add other veggies, do that now. Tomatoes, carrots, and celery are all nice additions that don't add any points.

In fact, most days, I have trouble hitting the point goals. It's how the SmartPoints system effectively "prohibits" certain foods by assigning such high point values. Like many others, the big reason I choose Weight Watchers vs other programs is because it's easy to lose weight eating real food without putting certain foods off limites.
But SmartPoints are so high for desserts that it's hard to make room for those special-occasion indulgences.

Please know, recipes on this page are sorted using the Weight Watchers "Old Points" system, that's the point system Weight Watchers used for 13 years between and I adopted what we now call "Old Points" in back then, they were just called "points" of course and fifteen years later, can still quote point values for my favorite foods!

In addition, every month, I update several recipes with new photos and more, these too include Old Points, PointsPlus and Smartpoint information. Each recipe also includes the nutrition information to calculate points in whatever triple sigh new scheme Weight Watchers comes up with next.
Nearly always, Old Points are the same as SmartPoints for savory dishes, often several points lower than SmartPoints for sweet dishes. Keeping up with Weight Watchers' new point-counting schemes is harder still.
