    Hi all, i would really love for someone to give me an idea of how WW works.
    Ive been on CD for a few weeks and lost a couple of stones but then i ate while on holiday and just cant get back on the CD way of life ( i love my food far too much to not eat)
    I have no idea how WW works, ive never tried it before.
    Would someone please give me a rough idea?
    Thanks :sign0009:

    Hello Trinakmh! hope you are well :)

    Ok, its basically the best diet in the world!!!

    sooo - every, single thing that we eat has a points value.

    depending on your weight etc.. you are allocated a number of POINTS that you eat throughout the day

    (sorry, im awful at explaining things!!)

    for e.g - I can have 24 points per day.

    an apple for instance is half a point. A Big mac is 14 points (I think)

    I can eat whatever I want once it does not exceed the allocated 24 points. I can use it on junk, if I want but wont have much to eat that day but if I eat low point food, Im eating more than ever!!

    (p.s. a 9.5 inch slice of dominos pizza is 2.5 points - yeah!!)

    you can also save points (for a night out at the weekend etc - a vodka and diet coke for e.g. is one point)

    You can save NO MORE than 4 points per day (so id eat 20 per day) (Im confusing myself here, must be confusing you!! sorry) but they have to be used up by the end of that week!! do you get me atall?

    You have to eat all your points each day - VERY IMPORTANT - or if your saving for the weekend, have to use all your points by the end of the week, if not, your body may begin to go into starvation mode and save the food you do eat into fat.

    its brilliant - im having a whole dominos pizza tonight! and still loosing!! - I know the losses wont be as fast after CD but (I think) we are more likely to stick to this as we're not depriving ourselves and I know ill end up sticking to this counting points for life. Im on it 13 weeks now and have lost 2 stone and 8 pounds.

    Hope you could understand that!!!!

    Oh Nikki I am so glad you explained that lol

    I was trying to think of how to explain it but I think you have done well and there is no need for me to explain now, thanks for letting me off with that one. I was actually racking my tiny brain of how to put it in some sort of content that someone else would be able to understand.

    I will go back to work now :D

    Welcome aboard :)

    You can do WW either by going to classes, or online, or when you know the basics, by yourself.

    Classes are £5 a week, online is more expensive

    If you do go and decide youre going to give WW a go, Id really recommend getting an electronic calculator, Shopping Guide and Eating out guide ;)
