    .... use up their activity points from exercising on food? Im into the gym again now, and earning quite a few bonus points (at this rate about 5hours of cardio a week) do you think its worth adding up activity points and using them, or will I have a better loss if I dont? thanks guys x:)

    you should aim for 28AP per week exercise wise according to WW, but you are only allowed to eat 12 of your AP earned per week.

    Also, i think its a bit of a myth that if you dont eat them you will lose more.. it theoretically makes sense but a lot of people have seen better weight losses for eating them than not.. think its an individual thing.. but if you are calculating your AP right, sticking to your points and your allowed 12AP then there is no reason for you to lose nothing xx

    Light Activity is your current weight in lbs x # of mins x .000232

    Mod Activity is your current weight in lbs x # of mins x .000327

    Heavy Activity your current weight in lbs x # of mins x .0008077

    It's best to round down to the nearest point since most people think they work out harder than they actually do!!! :)

    Hope this helps if you need to work it out in future :) x

    I have always had much better losses when I have eaten my activity points. If I get 5 in a day I will eat 2.5 of them making sure I don't go over the 12 in a week WW say you can eat.
