    Hi all,

    I am looking for a bit of advice. My points for a day is 27.

    How low can my points go per day before I am having a negative effect??

    Thanks in advance

    you cant go under 23 really, save 4 a day, but you should use them by the end of the week. Unless you do kick start but you can only do that for about 2 weeks max :)

    I know I am meant to go only as low as 23 but in real life how low can I go?

    I am not wanting to go low but having reviewed last weeks eating I am only having around 20 points most days

    The minimum a person can possibly have is 16 points, But I wouldnt advise going that low..They say eat your points or a maximum of 4 under because eating under can make the diet harder later on IYKWIM x

    No really, going more than 4 under can have an impact on your weigh in. As Jen said, unless you do KS but thats only for one or 2 weeks max. If youre 7 under a day, and not using them up by the end of your week thats a LOT under

    Thanks everyone.

    Last week I had 1 day that I ate 27 points. 1 Day I had 32, 3 days I had 20 and 1 day I had 18.

    Goal for last week was to stay on track, goal for this week is to eat all my points

    That sounds a bit like Tracey's Wendi plan - or Lydias weekly points plan. I reckon that it can't do you much harm if you vary it high/low like that as your body will be confused so won't slow down??
