Weight Watchers is a food plan designed to help you lose weight. The program assigns points to every food and drink based on the amount of calories, fat, carbohydrates and fiber. Like with other diets, planning ahead can help you stay on track and eat within your points. Cooking meals to freeze ahead of time can help you avoid fast food or pizza binges when you are in a hurry.
Plan out a menu for your upcoming week. Review Weight Watchers recipes online or in cookbooks for some that sound appealing. Dishes that have a lot of sauce, such as lasagna or chili, are better freezer options because they won't dry out.
Set a day -- or a few hours, depending how much you plan to make -- aside for cooking. Choose large Weight Watchers dishes that serve eight or more so that you can cook the meal once and enjoy the food for several dinners. You can also double or triple smaller Weight Watchers recipes.
Divide the meals into individual serving sizes after the food has cooled. Measure out the food according to the serving size listed in the recipe to keep an accurate record of points.
Store the individual meals in microwave safe containers. Label each container with the food item, preparation date and point value. Keep in the freezer until you are ready to use.
Defrost a meal in the microwave or on the counter when ready to use. Reheat in the microwave or oven. Add steamed vegetables or a salad with your Weight Watchers meal for a savory, healthy meal.
