    I snack on: raw carrots, raw cauliflower, fruit (apples are particularly good for curbing sugar cravings), snack-a-jack popcorn (1/2 point per pack of salted), snack-a-jacks (2 points)...erm can't remember anything else :eek: will think about it and come back when I remember more!!

    well snacking is a great way to use up those points youre having problems using. Stock up with low fat crisps, some chocolate etc and you can enjoy them guilt free.

    I like Melba toast and cheese triangles - one packet of toast is six slices and its only 1 point

    I have a notebook I write down what Ive eaten the points and how many I have left for the day. I start a new page every day. Writing it down is second nature now its the only way to keep track

    But you don't need to know this Bethany. As you struggle to eat all your points, you could just have another dinner surely?:confused:

    Why not:confused: Aren't you allowed to on WW? I thought you could use the points as you wanted:confused: Aren't you allowed beans on toast for a snack?

    Karion youre exactly right you can have more than one meal if you want the main thing is keeping to your points. You can use them any way you like so long as you keep within them.

    Theres really no reason to be hungry or not to be able to eat with them.

    You can have more than one dinner if its going to help use your points up. Id count beans on toast as a very low point snack, not something that would help me use up lots if I was struggling

    Its not a case of you SHOULD be having another meal but if youre feeling the need to snack AND youre struggling to use your points then it makes sense to.

    You can eat WHATEVER you want so long as its all within your points. If you have 6 or 7 left at night and are still hungry then theres no point having an apple, having another meal just makes sense

    Have a glass of milk bethany and tomorrow add something with higher points to your meals. Maybe some olive oil, or cheese.
