yes exactly! You can buy the calculator and get away with it, but you might want to get the folder with the explanation of the diet, which you might get at meetings or on ebay or somewhereAre you saying the new calculator will tell you how many daily points you're allowed? You won't have to go to the meetings to get that answer?
your leader will tell you at meetings. If you don't go to meetings you can use one of the vouchers codes that are shown here on minimini to join the 2 weeks free trial and see how many propoints are you supposed to have, or if you don't mind spending a tenner, just buy a WW propoints calculator and you'll see it calculated for you!
Your daily allowance will be different from that if people weighting 12 stone, but the weekly "naughty" allowance will be the same, exactly lime with the old plan you would have been, let's say, on 27 points a day rather than 22 for a 12 stone person, but you would still have been able to only save 4 of those 27 points every day to have a treat
So if the minimum points anyone will ever be on is 29, and I'm currently on 32, how do we lose more weight when it gets difficult? I'm confused, yet managed to lose 16 and half pound in my first week!
I'm dieting alone because I can't get out.
to me though hun these are both the same thing, before people had to earn the right to have treats by saving up or gaining AP to be able to have those treats, now WW have changed it so you can eat normally... and then stuff yourself on treats some more with the 49 weeklies?
thing is though hun im seeing everywhere that your not meant to eat more than 3 pieces of fruit a day anyway because of the sugar they contain and the higher cals in fruit like bananas and grapes so therefore its kind of going back on itself... eat as much fruit as you like... oh actually not so much because too much is bad for you also lol not taking away anything from propoints etc just i dont think its any better tbh suppose to be a huge change but its still the same to me anyway! and certain ww leaders are telling members they HAVE to eat all their weeklies so there is a mix of signals going around as to what to do best with the weeklies hence i feel the UK ww should of followed the rest of Europe with the different weeklies for different weight brackets xxx
Forgetting the points value, how many calories am I consuming a day?The principle is that after you've had 29 propoints, free fruit, filling foods and the likes, you won't feel as hungry and you won't reach for the chocolate bar. The 49 weekly don't *HAVE* to be eaten, they are there in case you have a night out or in case you just fancy something more one day. The whole principle of forcing you to eat your 29 and giving you free fruit and veg is to fill you up with the good stuff!
And yes, if you want you can over eat and get the banana AND the chocolate bar, but maybe after having had the banana you won't feel as hungry as before and you might think more carefully whether you really want to have the chocolate bar or not.
I just calculated my total food consumption to be 560 calories in the meals above, so if I ate 29 pp and also consumed more fruit and veg would it take me to 2000 calories a day?
Then I must say I envy you. If I eat more than 1000 a day my weight remains static, or I gain. If I eat less than a 1000 I lose weight, but to really lose weight I've always had to go below 700 calories per day and at times down to as low as 200. My life is quite sedentary due to feet problems but I'm now walking a mile a day. I simply couldn't lose weight on 29pp a day and you can put me in a lab to prove it.you should be eating A LOT of fruit and veg to get to 2000 calories per day. I normally log my calorie intake daily on Sparkpeople as well as on WW and when I have 29pp, even with app the veg and fruit that I have (and I normally have over 1Kg of vegetables per day PLUS fruit!) I normally hit around 1400/1500 calories, which is perfectly acceptable for losing weight.
Now, it's some time I forget to log my eating on Sparkpeople, but you can have a look here just to have an example, it's what I ate on the 8th of December:
GIULIAFANCELLI's Shared Food & Fitness Tracker - Wednesday, December 08, 2010
As you will see if you keep on looking at the daily intake, my daily calories are roughly 1400/1500, except when I go to the restaurant or things like that which I can't really count for.
