I think it's pretty bogus that WW says fruit is a zero points plus food, when if you use it in a recipe for a smoothie, for example, it's not zero points! I've been having a problem with gaining weight while on maintenance on the new points plus program. I had gained about 3 pounds. I decided to go to the weight loss point level of 29, still counting fruit as 0 points and still gained weight. So now I'm starting to panic. I decided to stick to 29 points per day, but to count the fruit as 1 point. Basically I decided to use the point count for fruit from the old program and voila... I started losing weight! I've lost 2 pounds in the 3 weeks that I started counting fruit and I don't feel hungry at all. While counting fruit as a 0 points plus food may work for some people, it definitely does not work for me. For me... FRUIT IS NOT FREE!
