im sure the science is that some foods break down easier in your body - such as fibre calories, and calcium calories....therefore the types of foods assist in weight loss.

Crisp and Chocolate calories dont speed up weight loss!!!

Thats my take on it anyway - someone please correct me if i am totally wrong there!

I actually don't think you're eating any more on SW, in terms of calories. It just seems like you are because you're eating low density foods (i.e. low calories in relation to the weight of the food item) so large quantities of food for relatively low calories. I used to be on weight watchers and out of curiousity I pointed a few of my SW days and I had an average of 17 points but I've never been hungry, quite the opposite actually!! So basically you're still on a low calorie diet its just that SW's done all the maths for you. I think it's a great eating plan and is a more natural and intuitive way of eating. When you start out you'll probably eat lots but over time you'll find that you're satisfied on less food. So there's no magic in it, just a clever way of getting us to eat less!

Honeyoc, that's exactly how my consultant described it to me. By nature of the foods we are eating, we are eating less cals. x

That is so true Honeyoc. When I first started SW I ate loads and loads just because I could. I loved the free food and really made the most of it. I found I really needed the snacks during the day, but slowly this has changed.

Now, especially this week, I've not been snacking between meals and my meal sizes have come down too. I think the unlimited free food really helps the body when moving onto a more restricted diet, because it allows you to eat and eat. Then when your body settles into it, it realises it doesn't need the extra food between meals.

I'm loving how I'm now eating less and eating healthy, never been able to do both of those at the same time! :D

LOL!! Aww thanks CP :love:

Chelleb79, when I started SW I also ate much more, lots of fruit and sometimes 3 mullers a day. But these days I eat much less and only when I'm hungry. I've even tipped unfinished dinners in the bin because I couldn't eat anymore :eek: now that's never happened before!

That looks good! Only thing I would say is to add fruit or veg to every meal. I think it's a good idea to have at least 2 pieces of fruit and 5 portions of veggies a day. So you can have 1 piece of fruit with breakfast, 1 as a snack, salad with lunch and at least 2 varieties of cooked veggies with dinner. You'll get tons of vitamins and fibre and your meals will be extra filling!!
