The Ultimate Weight Watchers Grocery List Foods


Grocery shopping when you're on Weight Watchers is pretty much just like grocery shopping on any other diet or just grocery shopping in general. There are no hard-and-fast rules for taking your favorite foods out of your meal schedule. It's just a matter of finding out about your SmartPoints and budgeting it all into your day rightly. But, it should be very clear that the more lower-in-points foods you consume, the more you can eat in general.

Ready to make change happen? Begin by stocking your kitchen and pantry with foods for weight loss success. Here’s the ultimate Weight Watchers grocery list foods.


Store up on fresh vegetables. They are your best friends, and they've got 0 SmartPoints (except potatoes).

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Leafy greens
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Squash
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet potatoes: 8 SP
  • White potatoes: 5 SP


You just want to stock up on produce and when it comes to SmartPoints, fruit and vegetables are practically freebies. Everything here is 0 points.

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Oranges
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Pineapple
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon

Meat and Seafood

I like to stick to lean proteins and plenty of seafood, but there's nothing wrong with making a juicy steak from time to time.

  • Bacon: 5 SP for 3 slices
  • Fat-free hot dogs: 1 SP
  • Salmon: 0 SP
  • Shrimp: 0 SP
  • Steak: 5 SP for 3 oz.
  • White meat chicken: 0 SP
  • White meat turkey: 0 SP


It's up to you to choose whether you like real dairy or dairy substitutes. For me, I generally stick to alternatives because dairy isn't a friend of mine, but you definitely have a lot of choices.

  • Almond milk: 1 SP in 1 cup
  • I Can't Believe It's Not Butter: 2 SP in 1 tablespoon
  • Eggs: 0 SP
  • Skim milk: 3 SP in 1 cup
  • Plain nonfat Greek yogurt: 0 SP


There's nothing wrong with having fats in your diet! In reality, you need them, so make sure you are picking good ones.

  • Avocado oil: 4 SP in 1 tbsp.
  • Coconut oil: 7 SP in 1 tbsp.
  • Olive oil: 4 SP in 1 tbsp.


I still eat bread, and it blends well into my plan!

  • English muffins: 4 SP
  • Mini bagels: 3 SP
  • Sandwich Thins: 3 SP

Canned Goods

I love to stock up on canned veggies. They still have 0 SmartPoints just like their fresh counterparts, as long as you don't have something with any additives, but they last longer in your cupboards.

  • Beets
  • Black beans
  • Carrots
  • Corn
  • Green beans
  • Kidney beans
  • Lima beans
  • Tomatoes

Frozen Foods

There are some items that I'm buying frozen just for convenience. And then there are those items I buy in the freezer section only because everybody needs a treat in life.

  • Berries: 0 SP
  • Broccoli: 0 SP
  • Cauliflower rice: 0 SP
  • Corn: 0 SP
  • Mixed vegetables: 0 SP
  • Peppers: 0 SP
  • Prepared rice: 6 SP in 1 cup
  • Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches: 6 SP
  • Sugar-free Popsicles: 0 SP

Pantry Staples

I don't have a lot of pantry items on hand, just because I depend almost entirely on fresh food. But there are a few that I make sure to pick up.

  • Almond butter: 6 SP in 2 tbsp.
  • Angel hair pasta: 5 SP for 1 cup
  • Crystal Light On the Go: 0 SP
  • Lentils: 0 SP
