Several years ago, I read that the best diet for me, according to my zodiac sign, was to join a group for motivation. Apparently, Capricorns need support and long-term plans in order to achieve their weight loss goals. So, I joined Weight Watchers. I realized rather quickly that group meetings help many, but they weren't for me. I think if I had gone with a friend I would've been more successful, but my introverted personality made me feel out of place.

I took the information I had paid for and tried to do the program on my own at home. I did have success with the program, but with all diets I've been on, I quit. I am a super picky eater. I don't like fruit. I don't like most vegetables. I don't eat seafood. Basically, I don't like a lot of foods that are good for me.

Weight Watchers revamped their zero-point food list and has included over 200 more foods that you can eat and it won't cost you any of your precious points.

If you're not familiar with Weight Watchers, you are given a certain number of "Smart Points" according to your weight loss goal, current weight, height, age, activity level, and gender. Instead of counting calories, every food gets assigned a point value based on calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein.

Now, eggs, beans and even peas (one of the few vegetables I like) are zero points. This might be a program I can get on board with again.

Here is a list of foods that are now zero points in the Weight Watchers Freestyle program according to the weight loss program.

Skinless turkey breast
Skinless chicken breast
Nonfat unsweetened yogurt
