Frequently Asked Questions
If the tips above don't help answer your questions, you may find information here about how to fit cake into your routine.
What is the Healthiest Cake To Eat?
Health is subjective and truly depends upon the person and their dietary needs. Cake, while loaded with sugar and fats, is generally not considered healthy at all, but you can make better choices than others.
When looking for a healthier cake, I recommend finding ones with little to no sugar, fruit, fiber, and protein. Some examples that are common and healthier would be an angel food cake, apple cake, carrot cake, or even using a protein powder instead of part of the dry ingredients in a cake to increase the protein per serving.
Is Angel Food Cake OK on Weight Watchers?
Absolutely! There is no food off-limits with the Weight Watchers Program. The focus is all about learning healthier habits. So, if angel food cake is something you love, you can absolutely enjoy it and stay within your points.
A traditional angel food cake will be 5 to 6 points per serving on average. Sugar-free angel food cake is typically 1 to 3 points per serving on average. Both of these types can easily fit into any daily points allowance.
How Many Points is in Cake on Weight Watchers?
The points value will depend upon the actual cake. You can find some cakes as low as 1 point per serving, however, the average cake without icing will be in the range of 6 to 8 points per slice.
Should I Avoid Cake When Trying to Lose Weight?
This depends upon your own needs and dietary plan. For those who are diabetic or struggle with insulin resistance, avoiding cake is a good idea. It can also be good for anyone who struggles with sugar addiction or portion control with sweets. If none of those is an issue for you, then cake may be something you can easily fit into your routine with no issues in regard to your weight loss.
