I’m sure you’ve all heard that Weight Watchers has recently changed up their program. There has been a lot of talk about it over on Twitter and so far from what I can tell, everyone is enjoying the new program.
I’m personally in love with it. I think it makes a lot more sense than the old program when it comes to figuring points for foods. Before they calculated using calories, fat, and fiber. Now they calculate them using fat, fiber, carbs, and protein. Obviously if it has higher fiber and protein content, the lower the PointsPlus. This is because protein and fiber keep you satisfied longer.
Another major change is that fruits and most veggies are 0 PointsPlus value. This is my FAVORITE change! Before fruit had points and sometimes had more points than foods that weren’t too good for you. On the old plan I would find myself eating a Fiber One Bar instead of a banana because the bar had 1pt and the banana had 2-3pts. Now that they are 0 PointsPlus, I am more likely to grab it as a snack. I don’t know if I’ve ever eaten so many bananas! Haha.
Other changes are that you get more PointsPlus value a day and you also get more Weekly PointsPlus value every week. This is because food has gone up in PointsPlus value due to the new way to calculate. I do find it hard to eat all my PointsPlus a day. I’m sure this will change as I’m on the program more. I just need to find more foods that work into the plan with higher values now. I’m sure I’ll soon think I don’t have enough PointsPlus. Lol.
That’s the new program in a nutshell. Like I said before, I’m really enjoying it. If you’re a Weight Watcher, what do you think of the new program? Likes….dislikes….any new food finds?
Also, I’m soooo close to hitting 199.9!! EEEK!!
