It’s no surprise to many that fish and shellfish are zero points on Weight Watchers. Fish are nutritional powerhouses full of lean protein, healthy fats and carry a boat load of other vitamins and nutrients. PLUS they’ve been found to reduce the risk of major depression. 

The best part, many of the ingredients we suggest to dress up your fish, are ZeroPoint foods as well.  So we’re going to show you three, easy ways to put together a low point meal or zero point meal.  Imagine all those spare points you’ll have left over for dessert. 

Before we get into the recipes, fish and shellfish join the following on the ZeroPoint list.  The list changes per person, but many will find these foods on their personal ZeroPoint List.
