Weight Watchers has identified Skinny Pasta as a great option for those looking to balance their daily SmartPoints budget and/or looking for a healthier option, while still maximizing taste in their dishes. The Weight Watchers SmartPoints plan, which launched in December 2015 as part of the company’s new Beyond the Scale program, takes the information provided on the nutrition facts label for calories, sat fat, sugar and protein and converts it into one simple number. The SmartPoints plan allows members to personalize their food choices throughout the day while helping them to adopt a healthier eating pattern. Each Weight Watchers member is given a SmartPoints budget, determined by their age, gender, height and weight, to help them determine how much they need to eat each day to lose weight at a safe rate (one-two pounds per week).
Available in a variety of forms, including a traditional noodle shape, couscous, spaghetti, lasagna, fettuccini and rice, Skinny Pasta can be incorporated easily into staples like soups and salads, as well as be a smart complement to meals or pasta alternative in family favorite recipes®.
