How many points to use??

#3
Should I max my points?

Hello everyone!

Its my first time doing the ww diet. I'm allowed 30 points per day. Should I be aiming to eat all 30 points, or like today i've managed 23 comfortably. Is eating under my points ok?

Will I still lose weight?

Thanks x

Hi Starlight, thanks for the reply, i added a message earlier and diidnt think it worked, so did it again! Wow you've lost 10 stones, congratulations!
Even if I dont want to keep the points and i'm not hungry, I still have to use them all?

Thanks x

I'm on 23 points at the moment and wish it was 30 sometimes. If you limit yourself too much you may find that you will be hungry, fed up and fall of the wagon. Keep to your 30 points they will soon decrease as your weight drops.

i get 32 points a day and i tryed cutting back to about 25 points a day and that week i only lost 1lb but the week after i used most of my points every day and i lost 3lb, so i would say to use them up.

Not using your points can have as much of an effect on your wi as going over them.

You really MUST use the whole amount, unless youre saving a couple a day for a treat later in the week. Honestly I know sometimes youll feel you cant possibly lose weight eating as much as you are but you will.

If youre struggling, have some treats, a bar of chocolate etc. stick with higher point bread that kind of thing :)

Welcome to the WW gang.

I think we all have days where we cant manage all the points, just so long as you dont cut down too many ;)

WOW musicmad!!!!! that is such a fantastic loss since January!!! well done to you!! how brilliant!

Jrycroft - just to second everything Starlight has said, I know your first instinct is to think the less you eat, the more you'll loose and I struggled with this when I first started. Im fairly sure that the reason WW insists that you use all your allowance is because your points are calculated exactly on what you NEED to eat per day (unless your saving a few each day, but in which case your eating them by the end of the week anyway) anyway, apparantly, because of this, if you don't eat your allowance, your body goes into starvation mode and starts to store fat i.e. it thinks "ok, I'm not getting enough food here so whatever food she does give me, I'm going to store and put by for when needed".

The very best of luck xx
