I will still eat a lot of the things I learned about on Core because I enjoy them and they are really good for me. But I will start to count points again and recording them here. It is a pain in the butt but obviously it seems to be the only way I can do this. So here I go again, relearning how to eat Flex. If anyone has any great low-point foods, I am all ears and I would love to hear them.
Here is some information I found on a new twist on the Flex Points program. Use this version to jumpstart your program when you've hit a plateau or just want to jump feet-first into the program. I am going to consider this as a start to getting me back going. In the meantime, I am going to look up ideas and tips to help me. Do you have any that you can add?:
1) You eat 20 points per day for no more than two weeks (no matter what your weight is). Do NOT, under any circumstances go under this target!
2) Your 35 weekly Flex Points are not used for the duration of the Fast Track program.
3) Suggested menus can be found here: WW Eating Guide (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view - you can download it for free HERE)- you can follow either the higher carb or higher protein plans to get your 20 points in.
4) Remember to drink your water and eat your points in the most balanced manner possible!
5) Do NOT do Fast Track for longer than 2 weeks! To attempt to do so longer could cause damage to your metabolism. Fast Track is just a short-term program to jump start losses. It should be noted that if you feel you only need one week on it, than by all means, do it for only a week!
6) If you are exercising excessively, sticking to 20 points per day is probably not a realistic goal. Most have found eating some activity points, or just sticking to their regular Points Target is more helpful. If you exercise a lot, your body requires more calories for daily function. To not eat enough could possibly cause a short-term weight gain.
