So since i'm starting from a higher BMI i'm to stop my body going into starvation mode by swapping normal meals for WW/Supermarket-WW-equivalent ones for a couple of weeks (so 3 meals a day one week, and then 2 meals, etc)
But although the packs have low cals, i'm not convinced they're any good for you at all.
Taste wise they seem PACKED with sodium, and the 'lower calorie' element just seems to be making the portions smaller and adding loads of sauce stuff.

I mean it's less 'faff' for sure! So you spend less time around food because theres not much prep to do. But what are people's thoughts on this? Are they any good, or is it better to just have smaller amounts of normal stuff.

I love weight watcher meals, but they are a delicacy! They aren't enough to sustain you on a calorie deficit diet...

Your better off making your own meals (ratatouille is my fav) and freezing them... I've also found that meal replacement shakes (2 a day) kills all binge cravings, low in calories and stabilises blood sugar. It also means I never have to be around food but I'm also never hungry! Maybe try these and see What you think... Meal replacement shake for lunch and a meal for dinner....

In my opinion you can have a load of veggies instead of the meals. They are incredibly small portions. I used to eat them daily but then I swapped them for a bowl of steamed cauliflower and broccoli etc for the same amount of calories, but this was far more satisfying and with less sodium. 

 

Quorn cottage pie is only 201 cals though.

What about crunchy salad mix? Isn't it much better, bigger and healthier? Just sprinkle with lemon juice and voila! Huge 2 portions from 1 pack for £1

No they aren't good for you, lots of them have salt and sugar and preservatives etc. However I find them handy when I'm in a pinch and they're nice alongside a big salad

I love having Weight Watchers and other types of frozen meals (like Lean Cuisine) for dinners, at times. I find them to be filling and satisfying! I also like Slim Fast shakes, as well as energy bars.

 

take care,

Thinniana

In my household we have WW meals but that is emergancies when my Fiance and I couldn't be bothered to go grocery shopping or cook.     I find that I am hungry a few hours after eating them.

I too am short on time when I dont plan my meals. I like the convenience of frozen green giant or equivalent veggies. For an entire box, it's usually about 200 calories or so. Being vegetarian, I can easily add some tofu or beans, seitan, or beyond meat grounds or chikun. I like to do breakfast and dinner vegan smoothies or protein shakes and lunch frozen veggies. I buy a huge bag of frozen veggies and meal prep my lunches for all week.
