    Ive just had a look at my kick start plan book from my ww leader and it does seem that there is more too it than just having 18 points a day. You have to use a calcium allowance which inlcudes a set amount of skimmed milk, yog, cottage cheese, cheese, or soya milk.- 2 points

    I does also have set menus to follow which each meal adding up to a certain amount of points ie breakfast 3, lunch 5 and dinners 8. It does say that you can any no point veg and salad to your meals and fill up on no point soup.

    It also states that if you weigh more than 14 stone you should use an allowance of 22 points.

    I assume than you could swap a meal that you did not like for another as long as it is the same point value.

    It can also be done on the core plan again with the calcuim allowance and set meals.

    Hope this helps

    I was going to give it a try but it does seem quite restrictive.

    Might not bother after all.

    I know some people have found it worked well but personally it was the worst week Ive ever had on WW. I hated having to plan my meals round my points, I didnt eat what I wanted, I ate what was lowest in points and for the first time ever since doing WW I was hungry almost every day... it would have been almost worth it if Id had a good loss - but I didnt :(

    Nikki had a brilliant loss on her kickstart week!!.....but she does do a LOT of exercise (she walks and runs miles every week), so maybe that made all the difference.

    I don't do exercise, anything that makes me sweat I avoid doing (yes, even *that* ;) heehee!!) so I think I'll give kickstart a miss.
