I’m excited about the new tweaks to the WW PointsPlus 2012 program!! Especially the new Simply Filling option. If you did the old WW program, it is similar to the Core plan before. Simply Filling is when you don’t have to track points if you eat foods on the Power Foods list. You eat as much as you need (not as much as you want!) and by really paying attention to only eat till you’re satisfied….not stuffed. If you eat something not on the power foods list then you have to subtract it from your 49 weekly points plus allowance or activity points.
The power foods list now includes:
Non-fat dairy & dairy substitutes
Fruits & Veggies

In our WW meeting today Karen talked about how flexible the new plan is. You can use this Simply Filling technique for a a meal, day, a few days, all week, etc. Its not like before when you had to use the option the whole week. This especially comes in handy for all those holiday parties!!! Our family will be traveling for almost 2 weeks during the Christmas break (talk about one BIG holiday party!!! ) so I think I’m going to try this option because it will be pretty crazy and harder for me to track points…….my plan is to carry a copy of the Power Foods List with me on our trip and try it out! I think it might help with not eating all those french fries I love so much if I know its gonna have to be deducted from my WPA or activity points!!! I’ll let ya know how it goes!
Have you started using Simply Filling or been using the power foods list??
