I’ve been on WW for three weeks and have lost 6.5 pounds. And this is eating delicious food-wraps, sushi, sandwiches, a slice of pizza, ice cream, Kinder Happy Hippos!
The secret to WW is to not fall off the wagon. You are aloted those “weekly” points for a reason, and it’s essentially mental. Knowing that those points are flexible keeps you from beating yourself up if you have a cup of ice cream or a little bit of pasta.You know how much wiggle room you have and you should work within those guidelines.If you don’t use up all those points, all the better.
Of course, you don’t want to be constantly indulging. It is best to eat a big breakfast (I have two slices of Ezekiel toast with two wedges of laughing cow cheese or an ommellete or basically anything you want).
This is just my prefernece, but I especially like big breakfasts that include leftovers, and I find that if you want something carb-y but have a busy day, eating that carb based food is best for breakfast. It may sounds nuts but it works for me and since you get to eat that food you think is off limits, you don’t get cravings. It gets my “engine” going in the morning.
Lunch could be a protein and a salad with a little bit of carb. Also, I enjoy Amy’s meals now and then. Or even sushi ( a cali roll is 5, and a spicy tuna is 7 points). Snack is a piece of fruit.
I usually go for another big salad with tons of veggies, some turkey breast or 4 oz of chicken and this great salsa from Pennmaid as a dressing. It has less points and tastes so much better than Caesar dressing.
Jennifer Hudson gave a piece of great advice though. Don’t eat sushi the night before your weigh in, Lol. It reflects in the scale. Don’t get me wrong, it comes off, and you are not gaining weight, but it just doesn’t burn up as fast. I learned this the hard way my second week.
My last piece of advice is not to weigh yourself every day or you will go bat S&%^. Your weight fluctuates. As long as you are weighing yourself once a week, you can see what you are doing wrong and change accordingly.
