I was told to have the 26 daily points plus the 49 weekly points and add an extra 6 daily points to start with and see how it goes. Some people need more, some people need less, so you need to carefully monitor your intake for a while to see how much you need.
Hi Beth- I'm new to the team...a back-slid Lifetime member,but I have friends who are on Maintenance. I heard my WW leader telling someone to eat nutrient-dense foods, which keep you full longer. Peanut butter is the main one that comes to mind. Get your 2 servings of healthy oils, and also raw nuts such as walnuts and almonds would be good for you. Also whole-grain pasta and rice. Also lean protein has healthy calories.
I learned the hard way that you can stay within your points and still eat unhealthy...too much overly processed and preserved foods, and carbs, carbs, carbs were my downfall. Now I try to cook from scratch with healthy, nutritious ingrediants. It's more time consuming, but that's the only way I've found to keep my triglycerides down.
Hope this helps

Have a bit of a problem. My goal weight is 110. For 8 years, I have done pretty well, keeping my weight well below that. But now, I am losing TOO much, getting close to what WW considers "unhealthy" for my height. I heard once that Lifetime Members get "extra points". Does anyone know anything about that or have other advice to offer? Thanks in advance for your help.
