I don’t see any breakfast on that list. Are you eating only fruit for breakfast? You should be having some protein and/or whole grains.

Are you correctly assigning points? I am not familiar with the new program, but 3 oz of turley with some gravy used to be more than 1 point . Ditto for the mashed potatos.

Honestly, fruit and veggies are “free” but they still do have calories. I’ve been doing WW as well as counting calories simultaneously as a temporary experiment to measure the difference. I always have about 3 points left at the end of the day and I’m too full to eat (I get 29pts a day), but I’m still losing weight (slowly but surely at about 1lb a week).

If you’re calculating everything else correctly, I wouldn’t worry too much. Have you been consistently seeing loss?

And as the PP said, adding more whole grains wouldn’t hurt. What I do is add a spoonful of granola (1pt-ish) to my yogurt in the morning, with a side of fruit. Filling and tasty. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a similar problem and have actually had a lot of trouble losing weight on the new plan!  I feel like all I do is eat- which is a good thing, but it has been a tough adjustment…  I think the point of the change is to get you to eat more protein, so i have been trying to implement that into my diet…  Ugh, can’t wait for the points-free honeymoon ๐Ÿ™‚

Because of my height and starting weight, I started with the max points (49) and have had trouble getting them all in one day. I’m at 45 points now since I’ve lost 20 pounds. My menu? 

Breakfast
1/2 cup egg beaters
2 pieces of turkey sausage
2 pieces of dry toast
1 cup of black coffee

Lunch
6oz grilled chicken on salad or 6oz grilled chicken wrap.

Snacks
Laughing cow cheese with grapes and kashi crackers or a tall glass of soy milk with almonds.

Dinner:
Depends. Sometimes we go out. Sometimes it’s baked chicken, veggies, salad, baked porato or hamburgers (93/7) or whatever else I can manage to cook out of the book

After dinner snack: Usually a weight watchers bar or icecream bar.

Then I do about 1 to 2 hours of exercise a day so I have massive activity points.
Even after all of that, I still have points left, but I’m losing about 2 pounds a week so I’m not going to question it.

I have only tapped into my weekly points twice in the last 9 weeks.

My answer would be to add booze, but that’s counterproductive, I’m sure.

I mean if you are under pts b/c you’re eating a lot of fruit I think that’s fine.  I think they say use all your pts so you don’t do the oh I”m going to eat under my pts to lose weight faster.  As long as you’re not hungry and starving yourself you shoudl be fine.  You can also go to a mtg in your area to ask one of the meeting leaders for a formal WW answer. 

Also how many points do you have?  I think I’m on the min of 29 pts, you can base it on that instead if you have more than that.
