    Hi *Claire-Bear*, Welcome to the forum altho' I see that you have been on here for a wee while now.
    I am not actually doing the ProPoints WW but my daughter (Irishlady) is so once you have 50 posts you can visit her diary on the "Members Only" slot. She is very good at the pp calculations but I am sure you will find some great help on here anyway.

    All the best to you ... :)

    *Claire-Bear* Well-Known Member

    You can get crustless bread by kingsmill its 1pp a slice .... however, i read on here that it was 1pp for 1, 2pp for 2 .. and i have just rechecked it myself and it doesnt add up to the same ... grrrr, ile have to stop trusting everything written and find it out for myself ..... thanks for bringing it up, or i would have happily carried on pointing at 1pp per slice ... so, its 4pp for 3 slices, god and its not even the nicest bread .... :sigh: :sigh: oh well xxxxx

    I'm a newbie like you - and I don't know how you are managing on so little food during the day. I don't have anything left in the evening but I eat a lot more food in the day. I have 2 weetabix for breakfast, then chicken salad for lunch (maybe with 2 oatcakes) and then a main meal in the evening. I eat fruit for snacks. I'm can manage without chocolate and my main problem is portion sizes. Are you feeling hungry on the amount that you are eating, or feeling fine? I suppose that might tell you if you should be eating a bit more during the day. Good to know that if you want to use so many points on chocolate then you can.
    Good luck!

    Hey, strangely enough before i started this diet, i was eating a lot less than i do now (breakfast - 1toast, dinner, soup n a yogurt, tea crackers n cheese ... then crisps in the evening) so i assume my body is use to it? i dunno, maybe my metabolism will start to kick in as i go along .... i never snack between meals because of my diabetes, just be taught never to by my nurse .. usually im at work so its impossible to do so anyway(im a nurse) ..... ive often wondered myself if i was eating too little ... as i always have like 8points left in the evening ..... thanks for bringing it up tho, how you finding the diet? im in love with food finally because of this diet .. i have struggled for so many years with eating disorders that ive often not allowed myself certain foods, but now i eat potatoes, pasta and chocolate ...... its great xxxxxxxx

    You could try normal foods if you really want to use all your points, I don't tend to use 'low fat' things as such, I use my extra weekly points for treats. The problem with me is once I eat a little bit of chocolate that's all I have on my mind and before I know it I'm raiding the cupboard without realising and eating it all!! :rolleyes:
    Also about the bread, even though it says 3pp for one slice of normal bread in the guide, the asda's own bread that I use (nice for toast :cool:) is 2pp each slice and doesn't go up as you use more so 2 slices is actually 4pp, i've now learnt to check everything with my points wheel because sometimes it's less :)
