    I'm on the Core plan too and I find it excellent and easy to follow. Most of the people here are on the point plan but there are a few of us!!!

    Welcome and good luck!!!

    Welcome and good luck hun!
    Can i ask a really silly question...what is the core plan?
    You see i do ww at home, i looked on here for my points allowance, bought a points calculator and have done it all my self, without going to classes or joining ww online. I cant really afford to join it's enough paying my monthly gym fee and buying all the food! I have only had the support of mini mins... which has been great.!
    So what is a core plan?

    core plan is were you dont weight food, you pick from meat veg fruit etc & have 21 points per week for things like bread crisps etc.

    Hello Eileen!!!

    Welcome and I'm really looking forward to seeing how you get on. xxxxx


    Laurie, I'm the same!! never been to a meeting or online etc.. photocopied some stuff off my cousin and went with that. Didnt get a calculator til I was 6 months on ww!! :eek: dont know HOW I lived without it now!!!

    As Eileen said, core is where there is a list of foods that you can eat without counting points (am not sure of the list, things like rice, veg, red meat?) you just eat this until you are satisfied - a bit like intuitive eating, I think. I would never have the discipline for something like that though, Id keep eating till I was bursting open - I like points plan because there is a cut off point in black and white for me he he!!. Oh, and as Eileen said, you have an allowance of (I think) 21points a week to spend on things not on the list (chocolate etc..)

    Best of luck Eileen!! xx
