going below your points?
I went to my first meeting last night and was given an allowance of 52 points.
Now I have changed my eating habits over the last 2 weeks but I think I would generally be coming in a good bit under this each day.... my question being, is there any harm in the long term for being much under? As in will I struggle later on?
I dont want to really start eating more to make up points?
I think long term low usage of pp could lead to problems when u come to lose weight as you will then be allocated the same amount of pp which u have been using. try topping up your pp by using real butter rather than margarine, full fat Phili rather than Light, eating nuts and seeds which give small amount for big pp. it's possible to eat more pp without adding rubbish or too much volume. Hope this helps. Good Luck! X

You could try having full fat milk, cheese sandwiches, dessert with custard etc. enjoy it while you can I say!
Thanks guys, I will have to sit down tonight and work it all out realistically......
I agree with the others try and use all of your dailies it will help in the long run
Hiya, I have to agree to, I find I have bigger weight losses when I eat all of my pp x
Agree with this! Maybe try having bigger portions of healthy foods rather than bulking it out with junk. Try lots of carby things like potatoes, pasta etc which can be quite points heavy.
