Oh but yes you get a booklet where you get so Many points for your height, weight, how active you are at work, the pace you walk etc..
But I don't think you have to have your exact points everyday but I'd of thought there abouts
Yeah it works...I used it back in college to lose 13 lbs and it's fairly easy...too bad I can't afford it anymore lol.
You get a certain amount of points depending on your weight every day, and you get a certain number per week for "slack points"....it's really very straight-forward once you do it and yes like Becca said you get a booklet.
I used weight watchers method to lose the almost 40lbs I gained with Franky. It's basically portion control and food choices. If you want to eat mcdonalds you can, but then that is all you are allowed to eat for the day pretty much...lol. I bought the book set on ebay for $50 I think, and never joined the group just did it on my own. It tells you all the foods points even for restaraunts, and how many you are allowed for your specific body type and goals. Also, you get more for exercising and cheat points weekly too. I love it.
different than just calorie counting, because it takes into consideration fiber content, calories, and carbs. Something high in fiber will be less points than something that has the same amount of calories but with less fiber. It promotes a well-rounded diet.
Most weeks, I did not use all of my bonus points. The only time I did was when we went to parties and I drank- alcohol uses a lot of points! However, one neat feature if you do it online, is it has a sandwich maker application, a drink application, etc... that helps you see and compare different foods and drinks easily.
I used Spark People (may get bleeped out here) which is a website where you sign up with your specifications and it will give you your caloric guidelines as well as protein, carbs, fiber, etc. It also builds up exercises for you as well. I personally liked doing it this way and found WW to be confusing.
I know people who've done WW and have had great success. Either way you go I think you'll do great!
