Whole30 & Weight Watchers: A Match Made in Heaven?

Here’s a confession: Part of my reason for going back to Whole30 this time around was that I wanted to lose weight before summer. Doesn’t everyone?

The thing is, though, my sure-fire way to lose weight in the past has always been Weight Watchers. So when I went for Whole30 this time around, I decided to combine the two. But can they really be a match made in heaven? Or is this a recipe for disaster?

And I’m Back!

Hey guys, I know I’ve been absent for a while… but I’m back!

I won’t bore you with a ton of stupid explanations. All you really need to know is that life has been busy and, while it’s busy still, I really miss writing here. So now I will!

You can expect more great original recipes from me, of course, but also something else…

I’ve decided to expand some of the things I write here. I mean, sure, recipes are great. We all love recipes. We all love learning how to make our favorite Latin dishes healthier, or how to incorporate Latin ingredients and techniques into other healthy recipes. And I love doing that. But I also love something else: writing about my weight loss, how I (try to) keep the weight off and what’s going on in the world of health and healthy eating.

And to be honest, I miss writing about those things. So why not do it here?

The other thing I should probably confess is that I am not exactly at the weight that I want to be. I’ve hinted about it before, but I am finally really ready to do something about it.

I rejoined Weight Watchers recently, and am pretty committed to more healthy cooking and some serious clean eating. I’ve even managed to lose some weight since, but I definitely have some ways to go. And I can’t wait to share the journey with you!

Behind the Scenes of The Search for the Weight Watchers Chef on ABC’s The Chew

TheChewTapingIn January 2005, weighing in at 231.6 pounds, I walked into a Weight Watchers meeting for the first time. I was 18 years old and finally decided that it was time to lose weight.

Although my weight loss journey has been pretty up-and-down ever since, I’m happy to be keeping most of that weight off now. And how do I do it? I have a combination of tools: my gastric bypass, learning to cook healthy and, of course, continuing to seek support at Weight Watchers meetings.

As I started to share more of my healthy eating adventures here and on Twitter, it seems that I struck a spark with Weight Watchers themselves. Thanking me for my devotion to the company and a healthier lifestyle in general, they surprised me with something that I considered pretty darn cool: an invitation to watch a taping of ABC’s The Chew as Weight Watchers hosted a competition to find the “Weight Watchers Chef”. So exciting! Continue reading
