    Well, as long as you are counting your points and staying within them, you'll be fine. The proof of the pudding will come at your next weigh-in, which I'm sure will be fine x

    my take on Atkins, will do it until i'm bored then go back onto WW methods.
    Hey Vicky,

    To lose a lb in weight, your body needs to be deprived of 3,500 Kcals, either through cutting back on food, or burning them off through exercise [thats a heck of a lot of exercise!].

    You're probably eating as much as you normally did, but just eating healthier foods, which are lower in Kcals/fat than what you ate pre-weightwatcher.

    Someone will come along with a full-blown scientific explanation. All i know is that it works, so stick with it! :)

    Ah right ok..i am finding i am feeling a lot more hungrier but feeling that way i know its prob most likely working.
    i have started doing some exercise, walking and the occasional jog within that so am hoping that will help. I know a brisk walk is 3points added to your allowance of which i am not going to use unless i really have to... i see this as losing weight quicker if i do not use points i collect from exercise.
    if i am incorporating jogging into my walk does this collect any more points or not?
