If you have been a WW for a long or short period of time,
or have a lot or a little bit of weight to lose,
or exercise is the only way to now finish getting off the weight,
or you are at goal and can't eat an extra point because you gain weight,
or you have been on a plateau for so long you now think you are on maintenance,
26 is the bare minimum of points that any female WW gets, not one more (guys I don't know about you).
Eating 26 points if you need to lose 99 lb. or 9 lb. is a limiting your calories you consume, unless you are eating 10 and up of fruits and vegetables.
You will lose eating 26 points if you are just starting out and you may lose big.
But suddenly you plateau after 5, 10 or 20 lb. so you start to exercise and you lose again, maybe, remember it takes fuel to make the body go without fuel, you have to burn something and you really want to lose the fat, but fat is not a good fuel without calories so you start to burn muscle. Burning muscle makes you lose even slower.
So now you need to lose another 80-4 lb. and you can't work out any more or eat any less.
What will you DO?
Someone suggest you do the Wendie Plan OR just simply eat the Weekly POINTS. (Which is what the Wendie Plan does..tell you how many to eat).
AND YOU GAIN WEIGHT.
Have you ever been on a DIET before?
Have you ever starved yourself?
Have you ever lost the weight or worse yet quit because you didn't lose the weight?
When you have only given your body the barest amount of food it needs to eat and you start back eating....you gain weight...
1200 calories is the least amount for women, (men 1600-1800)....
Is this what you want to eat forever?
WW gives you those points, ALL of them to eat from the start so that when you do need to reduce something you can reduce some of the weekly points..
BUT YOU CAN NEVER REDUCE THE LOWEST DAILY POINTS!!!!
SO you will then know you did not work WW to work for you.
I want you to get to goal,
Enjoy the journey,
Eating the food you love,
with portion control,
and better health.
