WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS AND CALORIES FOR SUSHI

Discover the Worst and Best Sushi for Dieters below:

HIGH CALORIE SUSHI:

Shrimp Tempura Roll

Approximate Calories: 500

Weight Watchers Points: 13

At 500 calories, this deep fried option isn’t good for anyone’s waistline.

Eel and Avocado Roll

Approximate Calories: 370

Weight Watchers Points: 9

Eel isn’t healthy when slathered in “eel sauce,” which is actually a sugary glaze.

Spicy Tuna Roll

Approximate Calories: 290

Weight Watchers Points: 7.5

Beware anything “spicy” at the sushi bar, it just means it’s drenched in Sriracha-spiked mayonnaise.

Philadelphia Roll

Approximate Calories: 319

Weight Watchers Points: 7

We love Philly, just not the cream cheese laden roll named after it.

Spider Roll

Approximate Calories: 400

Weight Watchers Points: 10

High levels of carbs and fat means this fried roll is a diet no-no.

WEIGHT WATCHERS IS GREAT, BUT WHAT IF YOU NEED SOMETHING EASIER?

LOW CALORIE SUSHI

Cucumber Roll

Approximate Calories: 136

Weight Watchers Points: 3

You don’t have to be vegetarian to love this low-calorie, low-fat roll.

Tuna Roll

Approximate Calories: 184

Weight Watchers Points: 5

Rich in Omega-3s and not in unhealthy sauces, this roll’s an easy choice.

Salmon and Avocado Roll

Approximate Calories: 305

Weight Watchers Points: 7

Despite the higher calorie content, this roll provides a healthy dose of good, natural fats.

California Roll

Approximate Calories: 255

Weight Watchers Points: 6

This sushi bar staple isn’t bad, but for added nutrition, order it with real crab instead of imitation.

Reminder: Sushi can be a faux diet food. American-ized, “new age” versions of sushi add fat, calories, and sodium. A good rule of thumb? Keep it simple to keep the weight off. The highest calorie sushi rolls include deep fried items, fattening sauces, and cream cheese.
