Going from SP to weight watchers I actually gained 10 pounds. I noticed that I needed to be able to actually see what I was eating (protein, carbs etc) and I think that ww in a lot of ways masks the truth. Also, the 0 point value foods don't make sense to me. I can eat 100 bananas and still be at 0 points.
I have tried the Spark People ideas for daily diets. It does require a lot of time, I think because I like to substitute and sometimes add what I like. However, there are several suggested recipes I make and enjoy.
My complaint is that ideas seem to be much the same week after week. I would like more variety. Beans often appear and too often for me. They upset my stomach.
I'm hoping someone can answer my question. I'm on the verge of buying weight watchers because I just am not doing a good job planning healthy meals and I'm wondering if WW will help me know what to eat, make meals, without a bunch of planning on my part.
Has ANYONE used the spark meals that the nutrition log creates? Did it require a lot of hands on time? Was it filling and tasty? Did you LOSE weight?
Thanks for any help you can give! I'd love to save some money... but I've broken BOTH of my ankles and want to still lose weight so though I'm an avid runner, dancer, taebo fiend... I have to focus on my nutrition now so I'm looking for advice! Thank you SparkLovieS!!
