I am trying to figure out my points allowance on the WW freestyle/flex program. I am using this calculator, but I'm not sure if it's for the Freestyle or Points Plus: http://www.exercise4weightloss.....lator.html

I weigh 81 kilo or 178.6 lb and I am 60 inches tall. I came out with 26 points on that. Anyone know if that is correct? And what my weekly additional points should be?

If you are a member, call them.

I get 23 points a day and 26 weekly points

I weigh less than you and I am shorter

Not sure if you can figure it out yourself

I am not a member. I have bounced from one diet to another and am going through a very difficult time emotionally with a very sick close relative and major financial crisis and work pressure. I haven't been able to stick with anything. I am hoping WW will be something I can stick to because of the flexibility and structure combination and that you can have some chocolate and count the points and not have lost everything. But I don't know that I'll be able to stick with it. I have spent so much money on diets lately and I can't spend more for something I might drop in two weeks. If I see it's working then I could do it but for now I'm just gaining weight at a scary pace from all the emotional eating. I was hoping to be able to figure out my points and try it first.

Can you get the Weight Watchers app on your phone?It's the best. They have a community called Connect where people support you!.

I was just like you and when I tried weight watchers on my own I really couldn’t stick with it. It actually worked when I officially joined and got weighed in each week. It probably won’t work if you don’t join. But it really does work once you sign up. I lost 25 lbs in around 6 months. It’s not expensive at all. Go to the weight watchers website to see how much it costs in your area. Good luck!

Plenty of people do online only with the APP. You track on the app and can post and read people's experiences on Connect.

I don't have a smart phone so I can't use the app and there are no meetings within an hour's drive of me. But the app looks great. I'm sure it would be much easier if I could use it.

I went to my 1st WW meeting and I can't understand how I can lose weight.
According to the program:
I can have
15 eggs
26 bananas
32oz nonfat yogurt
An entire turkey breast (the whole breast that's sliced at the deli)
16 carrots
7 bags of peas
16 cans of chickpeas
30 chicken breasts
8 bags of frozen corn
All in 1 day and it will be 0 points and I will lose weight???

I really can't understand that, if I ate like that I'd be double my size I am today.

I just signed up today and I'm really confused. Like the above poster if I eat unlimited 0 point foods I'm going to gain. I'm a chronic yo yo dieter sonmy metabolism has been thru the ringer. How's this going to work for me? I have 20-25 lbs to lose.

I just joined and lost about 3lbs so far on two weeks. Just a little slow going but I am not hungry I think the 0 points are meant as regular sized portions like two eggs not 24!

So let's say I make a fritata
In the oven
Used parchment paper, so no oil
And I took a whole bag of frozen spinach and then to that I added 6 eggs.
Technically 0 pts.
But, can I eat the whole thing for dinner and still lose weight
And can I still blend fat free yogurt with berries freeze and have this for dessert, and still lose weight???

I don't understand how
This dinner is almost 1000 calories.

I lost 5 lbs the first 2 weeks. I don't think the 0 points good is meant to stuff your face with. Of course if u will eat 0 point food all day you will lose slower. I use it to eat most of my meals and add the points for my starches and snacks. Fruits are only free when you eat them plain, in a smoothie you have to count it.

If I blend fat free yogurt with strawberries- into a smoothie homemade isn't that 0 points???
Please explain


Another question I like drinking coffee with almond milk.
If I drink 1 cup of almond milk its 1 pt.
if I split it for 2 coffees its 0 pts.
I still drank 1 cup of almond milk

Blended or juiced fruit is not 0 points according to WW rules, their theory is that chewing helps you feel full, drinking does not.
No diet is foolproof, there have always been ways to cheat WW. I know for me it's the meetings and weigh ins that help the most.

If you eat all that, there are other problems besides weight gain...

I'm not saying I eat like this.
Yesterday was the first time at ww, and the meaning leader kept on saying over and over you can eat as much as you want of zero point foods.
I can understand I can have unlimited celery,lettuce, cucumber (NOT even tomatoes) but she was saying have unlimited white chicken breast, all fish including lox and salmon, etc.
I'm just trying to understand to program.

Another thing is 1 tsp of olive oil is 1 pt. 2 tsps 3pts. 3tsps 4 pts.

By dr's orders I'm off all starches for 1 month, so I'm trying to find the best way to do the program for me.

The leader also said to aim for using at least 18 out of 23 pts. Daily.

I hear you. Starches are pretty high in points. WW expects them to be in your diet, and then they add up pretty quickly. I see that for you it's a little different. The goal is to be mindful of these zero point foods.

I know that for me, eating a little more chicken instead of rice is a win...
