Weight Watchers Blog - Updated Restaurants

restaurant food

In this section of the weight watchers blog, we highlight the updated restaurants. While cooking at home is always a great option as you can control the ingredients, life just gets busy sometimes. So eating out is sometimes necessary...and of course it's a nice break.

If you are wondering where you can eat and still track points, calories, fats and more, then take a look at the restaurant pages.

Check out the restaurants that begin with the letters I and J as they have been updated in March 2018. Some favorites are IHop, Jet's Pizza, Jack in the Box and Jersey Mike's plus more.

Restaurants beginning with the letter F, G & H were all updated in March 2018. Some favorites include Fazoli's, Friendly's, Godfather's Pizza, Golden Corral, Hardees and Harveys just to name a few.

Also updated in March 2018 are Applebee's and Outback Steakhouse is back on the list with updated nutrition.

Restaurants Beginning with a number were updated January 2018. These include 5 Guys Burgers, 54th Street Grill and 99 Restaurant.

Restaurants beginning with the letter A were updated January 2018. These include A&W, Aladdin's, Amigos & Kings, Arby's and Au Bon Pain. Applebee's will be updated in March as I am waiting for them to update their nutrition first.

Restaurants beginning with the letter E were updated January 2018. These include Eat n Park, Edo Japan, Einstein Bagels, Erbert & Gerbert's, Erik's Deli Cafe and Extreme Pita. Removed from the list due to lack of nutrition (or they use a nutrition calculator to personalize the order) are; Earls, East Side Marios, Eegees, EggSmart, El Polo Loco and Evo's.

Restaurants beginning with the letter D were updated December 2017. These include D'Angelo's, Dairy Queen, Daphne's, DeDutch, Del Taco, Denny's, Don Pablos, Donatos and Dunkin Donuts. Removed from the list due to lack of nutrition (or they use a nutrition calculator to personalize the order) are; Damons, Dominos and Dutch Bro.

I am currently working on restaurants beginning with the letter F and should be available by end of March 2018. These pages of the website take the most time to update, so please be patient and check the Restaurant List often.
