    I currently get 26 points a day...

    I know I should be grateful but it kind of encourages silly eating when you want to eat healthy but if you do make good food choices you cant possibly use up all your points... :confused:

    I wish I had that problem... I get 21 and I am fine for breakfast and lunch but come the evening meal I always find myself wanting more points.
    I'll take your spare ones off you...:D:D

    What have you eaten for brekkie and lunch ?
    I normally have a bagel and a smear of Flora which is 4 points and then at lunch, a can of soup for lunch - another 4 points...
    My snacks of fruit throughout the day eat up another 2/3 points...
    So I end up with between 7-8 for the evening...

    Hiya why dont you try and have more points for Breki+Lunch.
    You could have normal bread for more points for instance.
    I would have a milky bedtime drink and a couple of biccis too...
    I only get 20 points so im very jelous :rolleyes: its weird though some days i could live on 14 but have to say most days i wish i could double em!!LOL

    4 slices of bread and soup sound like more than 3 points. 4 slices of bread is probably 3 points on its own without spread

    If youre struggling, why not ditch the WW bread and get normal bread, same as soup, get regular Heinz or something. You can eat the same but substitute it for higher pointed things :)

    Seriously if you have 20 points left after eating 3 meals you need to totally change what youre eating :eek: You must be eating almost no point stuff for your meals. I dont want to appear cheeky but have you definitely worked out your points correctly? Even if youre on about 30 points 10 points for 3 meals is a tiny amount.

    If youre struggling, cut out any WW products and go for the higher pointed versions. Youre doing yourself no favours in cutting back.

    Its way more important to eat all your points than eat low point things and not manage them all. Youll just undo all the hard work youre doing by eating so called sensibly.

    All of them!
    I was struggling to eat all my 22 points but since i started to eat all my points (to make ww work!) im struggling to stay within them!!! i try to plan my brekki and lunch and dinner is my most random meal i cant plan ahead for this one most night! that way my points are more spread out.

    5 for brekki
    6-7 for lunch
    10 for dinner and snacks.

    spose it depends on what u do all day.
    i have set break and lunch times at work so plan ahead what i eat/drink at them times best i can.

    I find i binge more in the evening so keep a bigger portion of points for then.

    ww bread is half a point per slice so 4 slices are 2 points the soup is ww and its 1 point for the can...I dont use spreads got out the habbit with all my years of dieting lol

    I guess its just really strange to think of being on a diet without having to eat the diet versions of things...

    Some days I have no probs using them but there the days when Ive been to McDs with the kids and even though I chose within my points I still feel guilt for having eaten *bad food* other days where I have fruit and veg find it hard to use them.... I guess I'll be complaining when I get lighter coz my points will drop

    Bread counts for more when youre having several slices. I know 2 slices are 1.5 points so 4 slices are probably 3 :(

    Can someone with esource or something confirm how many points it is??
