    Did it a few yrs ago v successfully. Great programme :D
    Regained weight so back to No Count now!


    It was in Weight Watchers before Discover/Simply Filling Programme. When I did it, it was Core/No Count or Points-you had the option to do either.

    No Count appeals to me because I dislike pointing, it forces me to cook from scratch and thus eat healthier. Also, I like it because it limits treats to 21 points/week, easy to follow-just follow the food list and you're sorted.



    To refresh everyone's memories, No Count is three meals per day.

    You can snack on fruit and veg only in between meals. Anything else you snack on will have to be pointed as extras outside your 21 point week allowance for the odd treat e.g. biscuit, meal out, wine etc.

    You also have bonus exercise points that you can use on food although it's better obviously if you don't!

    You're given a food list which you can eat freely from:
    *Wholegrain cereal-special k, weetabix, all bran, bran flakes, oats etc.
    *Non-creamy cartons of soup
    *Weight Watcher yoghurts that have the green tick on them
    *low fat cottage cheese
    *low fat dairy-skim milk, very low fat yoghurt
    *Beans
    *Potatoes
    *Brown/Wholegrain rice
    *Brown/wholegrain pasta
    *Ryvita

    *(White rice and pasta are not allowed, bread is extra)

    *All fruit and veg
    *Weight Watcher fruities
    *Pulse veggies
    *Most condiments, spices and herbs, cooking spray
    *2 tsp of oil only per day

    *You have to prepare the food from scratch mostly.
    *You can only eat one portion of pasta/potato/rice per day-ie. at one meal, either lunch or dinner, not both.
    *You can only eat one bowl of cereal per day.

    I have just started back and am doing points at home as there is no point in going to the meetings as I don't like the new propoints plan.
    Hope you have hd a good day today. So far so good for me!

    I've no idea what the Propoints is like but I've heard it's 29 propoints per day!! what?! lol!! It just sound overly complicated to me! I loved the old points/core plan so am sticking with it. I was at weight watcher meetings before so I'm doing it at home now cos I know how it all works.

    Yeah so far, everything's going well, clothes are getting loose! Hope you're getting on well too :)

    Hi, I have been mostly doing the core paln throughout my weight loss journey and have now lost 117 lbs to date. I like the core plan because it teaches about portion size and I think that is one of the keys to weight loss success.

    This is the link to my diary, feel free to pop in.

    (Kernow Jo: Size 24 down to Size 12 ! Total lost -117 lb Wooohooo !)

    Good luck with your weight loss journey! Jo x
