    Hi everyone,

    Spent most of my life eating junk food..no problem eating loads in one go..quanity, not quality!! Now eating healthy food have trouble using all my points.
    I know I have to eat them all, and I am def not starving, in fact very full up.

    Any advice or tips, want to stay away for choc, crisps etc as my body needs a break from all that type of food.
    Any help would be very much appreciated :)

    If you're having trouble eating all your points try things like wholemeal pasta for a snack, fruit and yogurt for desert and things like that. My fav is fruit (0.5pts strawberries, 1pt grapes) and 1pt weight watchers thick cream which is a beautiful after dinner treat while being quite healthy.

    weight watchers make yummy frozen puddings for about 3 points each. I have one after dinner if I have enough left, or for an evening treat. :)

    Even small changes like forget the xtra light philly, go for the regular one or a different type of Ryvita could add a few points on a day.

    Dont be afraid to have some treats though, WW is all about changing your eating habits forever not just a diet and treats etc are a part of life :)

    Thanks Starlight, not really suppose to eat sugar or wheat, mainly fresh foods. But yes will go for regular philly, I think will make a smoothie later. Suppose its trial and error really.

    Thanks for ideas x

    You could always use olive oil in any cooking. Its high in points but at least it is a healthy fat.

    You could also try some nuts. They are really good for you and high in points

    If you change your lifestyle slowly then its more likely to stick so if your used to say full fat milk change it to semi for a few less points then when you drop some points change it to 1% milk and finally skimmed. If you like chocolate you can have some and cut it down slowly as you lose weight and thus lose points.

    A wise person said to me once use and enjoy your points because they soon disappear!! I've already lost one point :)
