Thoughts on WW Meals

I am not going to lie. I love the WW frozen meals (especially the desserts- the peanut butter cup sundaes are to die for)  My favorites (aside from the aforementioned desserts) are the chicken fettucine alfredo, the roast beef and mashed potatoes, the meat loaf and mashed potatoes, the breakfast ham and cheese scramble, the english muffins, and the enchiladas suiza.

I eat a lot of these meals. Especially when they are on sale. And they are on sale now, since its January and all of the Resolutionaries are out and about. It's great because it takes all of the guesswork out of eating. Well, most of it. Since WW changed over to the new PointsPlus plan, not all of the packaging is up to date, so you still have to double check the points values. Some are the same (like the breakfast scramble) and some are higher (like the desserts) but all in all, it's still a lot easier than measuring out your own food every single meal.

I love the convenience of it all. I am not going to lie. I cannot have the desserts in my house for more than 24 hours so I try to only buy one (or three) when I go shopping. I love them that much. Ask me which I prefer: WW peanut butter sundae or a Reese's, and WW will win hands down every time. Not that I wouldn't still eat the Reese's, but it would be second.

One small problem I've noticed. I am a lot more gassy and I am a lot stinkier. I don't know if this is because I am actually getting fiber in my meals now or if it's because of something else, but I smell so bad the dog doesn't like being near me and he licks his own ass. Is it just me? Or is it the fiber? Are you stinky?

No one tells you this kind of thing! I want to know! Is it just the processed pre-packaged food? Or is it the fact  I am eating apples (with the skin on, I might add!) and thereby increasing the amount of fiber I am getting? Does it subside if you stick with the same meal plan for a while? What makes it go away?

I don't know. I haven't really done any research. I only think about it when I toot and then I wonder... is it normal?


  1. My guess would be that it is a fiber thing. Have you tried Beano? It is a product that you can add to your food when you cook to eliminate the extra gas.

  2. Wouldn't know about WW meals, but it often happens with a change in eating habits... shouldn't take longer than a week or two to change in that case. Keep your windows open! ^^

  3. (Second thought - do you like drinking fennel tea? With a little honey, perhaps? Might help.)
