    I know this has come up several times before, but I just wanted to know how people have been using up their points during kickstart? I got the impression that people were just using the points through out the day whenever they wanted them, just like normal when following points...but...I was looking through my new ww magazine this morning, and is specifically says that kickstart is 18 points, but used up as follows...

    3 points for breakfast
    5 points for lunch
    8 points for dinner
    2 points for milk

    I didn't realise the rules of kickstart were that you had a certain amount of points per meal and no snacks, I thought it was just 18 points day to be used however/whenever you wanted.

    Is that how everyone else has done it?....as per the 'rules', with no snacks and each meal using the points allocated as above?

    I couldn't either, I need to snack - I'd rather skip all 3 meals and eat snacks all day myself, heehee

    That's what it says in my magazine though :sigh:

    I know Nikki did Kickstart so I'll be interested to know how she did it. She lost loads in her first week and I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have done it without snacks...but then again, maybe she did? Hmm...come on Nikki, set the record straight, how did you do it?!

    Its cutting back you points to 18 or 22 for the week, depending on your weight.

    I think tho its more geared for you restarting or if youve hit a plateau to kickstart your metabolism, I think if I was you when youre only just on WW and had such a phenomenal weight loss last week, Id stick with regular points for now, but keep KS in mind if you hit a plateau

    I am so glad Nikki replied to say she used her 18 points a day on junk, lol (thanks Nikki!!). I think I'll give it a go after my weigh in next week. It wasn't really an option for this week because I was out on Friday and I'm out again this Friday so won't be able to do it next week either (if I'm gonna do it then I want to do it properly and really make sure I stick to my 18 points a day - no 'days off') so I'll give it a go for week 3. That's assuming I don't have a good loss this/next week on my normal points, because then I'll just be greedy and carry on with my full allowance, haha.

    After having a reduced number of points for a couple of weeks what are losses like when you go back to your normal points allowance?

    i didnt see this thread when i wrote my own!
    i read the same artical too.
    it says nothing about 22 points, all it says is 18!
    im glade you can use them when you like cos i dont eat breakfast i'd rather save the points till evening when i normally snack more!
    i too will not start this week as have a couple of nights out that i need more points. really think i will next week tho ...good luck all x

    hi, i have been looking at kickstart, i dont seem to be losing much the last couple of weeks, well this weekend was my own fault cheated on saturday night! and put on a pound. anyway i noticed on my points calculator the other day it says i should be on 18 points a day but i worked it out from the book i should be on 19 which is what ive been having dont know which of these is right,

    i looked on the sticky though and i think id more likely be 18 than 19. i am currently 9stone 11.6lbs i have lost about 2 1/2 stone over the last couple yrs (v.slowley lol) my next goal is to get to 9 1/2 and then to 9 and see how i feel at that (i am only 5ft 2 1/2!), i have a holiday coming up end of august and want to try to do well for then. so i was wondering should i do kickstart or leave it and see how i go now im having 18 points a day and maybe do kickstart if needed closer to my hol? if i did do kickstart though how many points would i have as i am on 18 now anyway, would i just drop 1 or 2 points do you think?
    thanks x
