I have read in several different threads on the Weight Watchers website about eating more points, or using up activity points and the weekly points allowance to help LOSE weight. Huh? I don't get it.
I know all about how if you skip meals, your body holds on to fat because it thinks its starving. But if I eat my daily points, or sometimes just below it, my body isn't starving...
Losing weight is a numbers game. Eat fewer calories than you burn and you lose weight. Right?
I know there are other variables, but wouldn't eating more make you lose LESS weight? Someone said something about eating more points to help push you out of a plateau, which I am curious about.
Right now I have been losing weight by eating my daily points and not using activity points or weekly points. Some days I even eat below my daily points. Also working out every day on the elliptical, with sometimes a C25k or a DVD workout. I kinda think if I ate more, I wouldn't lose as much...
Anyone got any info on this? Maybe from your own experience? I know I'm doing fine as I am and I'm not worried or complaining about anything, just curious what everyone's take on this might be.
Attitude of Gratitude: I went shopping and very easily found my mom a good Mother's Day gift. I love when those things can be stress and hassle free.
