I am so excited to have been chosen to try out Weight Watcher's New Points Plus Program! This is the first time in over a decade that they have decided to redo their entire Points system! Instead of just calculating the points by way of calories, fat, and fiber, they have revolutionized their entire formula to include all of the ingredients that directly affect the caloric intake of each food product. Another great aspect of this new innovative program is that most fruits and vegetables are worth zero points! This allows us to satiate our hungers with yummy and delicious fresh produce which is great not only for our health but for our households as well, which is perfect for moms. Having a fresh basket of delectable fruit up on the table or counter spreads healthy nutrition to everyone around you.
On a more personal note, this new change in program could not have come at a better time for me. I have been sitting on a plateau twenty pounds from my goal for a month and a half and it has been chipping away at my motivation. I am hoping that this recalibration of points will give me that extra boost and get me under this plateau and on to a more new and healthy "me".
I can't wait to share my results and reviews of this amazing new system my supportive readers!
Thank you Weight Watchers for providing me with an extended online membership and other wonderful incentives. I am very excited to be a part of the exclusive Insiders group and I am looking forward to being an ambassador for this new program.
Here is some information provided by Weight Watchers:
A NEW FOUNDATION AND A BETTER WAYThe biggest innovation from Weight Watchers in more than a decade, PointsPlus uses the latest scientific research to create a program that goes far beyond traditional calorie counting to give people the edge they need to lose weight and keep it off in a fundamentally healthier way. The program is designed to educate and encourage people to make choices that:
- Favor foods the body works harder to convert into energy, resulting in fewer net calories absorbed
- Focus on foods that create a sense of fullness and satisfaction and are more healthful
- Nudge toward natural foods rather than foods with excess added sugars and fats
- Still allow flexibility for indulgences, special occasions and eating out
The above company has given me a free membership along with other incentives. These perks have in no way influenced my opinions, the words are solely my own and I take full responsibility for them.
