@skippydarling:  I love ww. Basically, if you are using online tools only, like me, it helps to have a smart phone with the ww app. It is very easy to figure out. Based on your weight ( and possibly other stats too- it has been awhile since I was a new member) you get your daily allowance of points. Then, you are allotted weekly points you may use however you wish . Ie. add on a few a day to make your daily points greater or use all at once at an event that week. 

 

So every food has a points value and you subtract from your daily. Last I checked, most veggies and fruits have no point value but read the site tools when signing up for specifics.

 

right now I am doing clean eating but still go by my ww points so I don’t over eat. 

Before my smart phone, I had a book too look each food up. But the app has everything you could need. Tracks weight, points, searches restaurant points and your fave brands, has a point calculator so you can figure out points even in grocery store before you buy something.

Basically, you get a set number of “points” per day, based on what you weigh.

Fruit and veggies=no points

Throughout the day as you eat you keep track of your points (there’s an app). Exercising gives you back extra points. You also get 49 “extra” for the week…basically enough for a cheat meal.

More than anything I find it really helps with portion control.
