    Obviously WW promotes a healthy diet, recommending you consume 5 portions of fruit & veg, 2/3 dairy, 8 glasses of water a day etc. As long as you stick within your poins and the weight is coming off what you choose to spend your Points on is down to individual choice.
    I used to live in Shields too :)

    I have a really unhealthy attitude to snacking points, too. I tend to count 2.5 for breakfast, 3 for lunch & 5 for dinner, so that I can have 8 for snacks. And sometimes I even have a snack instead of a meal (I can't always squeeze in 3 meals, as well as snacks). I have really low point snacks, too, so that basically, I am snacking all day long. But I find that's when I lose the most, provided I don't go over my points... oh, and the dairy is very important - any excuse for those mini milk lollies hehe.

    (I'm from Durham, originally, too - living in Bristol at the moment though, a drastic change to the good ol' North East.)

    No i dont think it does, to be honest regular snacking keeps the metabolism working at a constant level and avoids highs and crashes which make you pig out.

    I will always have points kept aside for snacking i think as long as you are sticking to your points you are fine but i would try and incorporate some healthy snacks just for the nutritional goodness :D

    K... don't hate me now but our leader said we should try not use up more than 14 points a week on junk food / alcohol as it would mean we are not eating the recommended amounts from the other food groups...
    (saying that though - I'm a snacker too!!!)
