Simply Filling

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:

Whole Grains

Non-fat dairy & dairy substitutes

Fruits & Veggies

Lean protein

and more!!

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??

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.

    Is there such a list as Simply Filling Food List or does everyone use the Power Food List with this second option. Starting 6th week with Weight Watchers. Still can’t find info, guidelines, and a Simply Filling Food List. Can you direct me.

    Is there a Simply Filling Food List or do you use only the power food list when you are trying the Simply Filling technique. Can you direct me to a Simply Filling Food List and guidelines. Starting 6th week with Weight Watchers. I am interested in second option. MaryAnn
