    Hi,

    I just started WW, after trying SW. I have joined on-line. I am struggling with daily distribution of points. How many points each would you suggest for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. My daily allowance is 23 ......

    Theres no hard and fast rules, Im not a breakfast person but Im a snacker so dont have anything in the morning and have quite a few left at night, its just a case of tweaking it to suit you and your eating habits x

    Yes I agree, it is a matter of personal preference. I work shifts and have different points for meals depending if I am working mornings, afternoons, and nights. Try different ways and see what suits you. Good luck you will enjoy the flexibility of ww

    Here's just a little bit of an example of my day (I'm now on 23 points too)

    Breakfast: coffee 1 point, crumpet 1.5, 1/2 tsp butter 0.5 so breakfast is 3 points.

    Lunch: sometimes have a large tesco healthy choice wrap 2.5 points, 2 slice of ham 1 point, and salad cream 1 tbsp 1 point and salad zero points.... so lunch is 4.5 points with a zero point glass of cordial.

    Dinner: this can vary but usually takes about 8 or 10 points which then makes a total of 17.5 points. Which leaves me with 5.5 points to spend on more coffee, fruit and low point bars ie small milky way 2 points or a delicious SMOOTH lolly ice for just 1 point or a wad of my favourite PINK N WHITES :D

    Hoope this helps.
