Alternating your points every day, can this accelerate your metabolism???

I was wondering if I was to eat all my points one day on the discover plan and then the next day eat 2-3 points less and then the next day all my points and then the next 2-3 points less and so on, would that give me a better loss? would it have an effect on accelerating my metabolism?

Alternating your points can give you a boost... Google The Wendie Plan... It explains it on there really well....I do it quite often....good luck...x

You see my point tracer:) I was thinking that alternating points everyday so I'm not eating exact calories and fats everyday might give me a boost, I mean I don't know how much it will effect it, but even half a pound extra a week this rate will be excellent. I always do hear that changing foods and reducing/ increasing cals will promote a better weight loss. gotta put it to the test i guess:)

hold on let me check out the wp plan:p I think im trying to jump before I can walk :D already trying to be smart with being on the diet for 2 days, no good, i should be patient:mad:

That's meant more for if you start to plateau though not for someone just starting out.
actually this second time I slimmed down with the old plan (before pp was introduced) I followed the principles of the wendie plan from week 1 and I've lost constantly and never hit a plateau. I think that if you know how to use the ww plan, then it's not necessary to wait hitting a plateau to start following wendie. Boosting your metabolism is good in any case!

Wendie plan is something I've personally never liked and never done. Im a great believer that if you choose a diet you do it the way it's meant to be done. I always felt if the Wendie plan was such a good idea why didn't WW adopt it or at least the principles of it in the plan.

I've never understood why people decide on a diet then instantly start tweaking it

Sorry Pixar I didn't realise you were so new to WW. I agree that you need to give the plan a go as it should be done for a while before you try anything else. I don't follow the wendie as a rule but I do it every few weeks as a boost.

WW did allow for it really on the Discovery plan, they always said if your planning anything for the weekend that you were allowed to bank some of your daily points ( they even do this now on the PP by giving the 49 weeklies, that they've banked for you). It's what suits your own body, but I still think you should learn the plan and see how you go before you start experimenting.

But banking your points was only a max of 4 a day not what 10 as it is on the WP

I totally agree though that you need to get used to a plan first before making changes

It just does my head in on Minis when you see people saying I'm having 10 points less than I need/I'm not having any syns/I'm only going to have 2 shakes a day instead of 3 :mad: 10 mins on a plan and people think they know better than the diet company do (oh and that's not aimed at anyone here just incase anyone takes offence ;) )

Everyone wants as quick a weight loss as possible Pixar but WW isn't a quick fix diet. If this is the one you've chosen then you need to accept losses of 1 - 2lbs a week. The weight didn't go on in the space of a few weeks it's not going to come off in a few weeks ;)

:D no offence taken dont worry> im jst open to all opinions and ideas, I know sw diet very well but not so much on ww, I mean Ive done the ww 4 years ago but need some ideas on it in case things have changed or people have opinions on getting me started but I think I should just stick to my 20 daily points ...Wow I looked at the wendie plan, Im not sure if i like the idea of going 10 points over one day and 10 points under, i mean 10 points under is ok but im not sure if 10 points over sounds good:D.. But i guess it balances it self out, u still eat the same points through out the week, mite try it when i get to that dreaded platue stage :mad:

The Wendie plan I follow you never have 10 points less than your dailies??? You save 2 or 3 here and there then have a day with 10 extra as your boost day. I've done Discovery for over a year and lost over 60 lbs now ( didn't find the wendie until 6 mnths in tho)...the plan is brilliant but any hints or tips within the plan are always interesting and worth a try at times when we're struggling a bit....x

yer i guess :sigh: I think im just panicking that summers round the corner but I guess i should be great full that u can eat all the foods u enjoy and still loose 1-2 pounds a week> I tried the fatloss4idiots for a while and boy I was dying to come off it because i missed carbs so much, i was literally dreaming of the day when I completed the plan so I could have a eat a hot meal like lasagna or a bowl of cereal, pasta/rice etc, some sweets, choc etc... It gives a good weight loss but what do u expect theres no carbs ;) ile def stick to the ww, even if the loss is slower, im more likely to stick to it because it makes me feel human again

maybe i read the plan wrong, i read 10 points over, but maybe assumed it would be 10 points lower to balance it out:D.....well i have no interest in going 10 points over.. i don't mind going few points lower to boost weight loss, but def dont like the idea of going over points, esp not by 10, it would make be feel like i over ate, but i guess if it helps at the plateau stage then its got to be done, i hope i dont get to that point for ages, still have 4 stones to loose :cry:
