They haven't revealed the new formula...But I'm 5'3 38 years old, I'm 221.4 lbs..And they have me eating 32 points is my daily Point Plus Target..Everyone gets 49 weekly point allowance.. the lowest amount points a person get eat is 29 points plus daily. So you will probably eat 29 daily

just joined weight watchers last week. my points allowance was 30 with 49 weekly points. lost 5.6 pounds and then, my points target dropped to the lowest allowed of 29. but the program is more than just raised points. most of the food points have been raised. now all fruits and most vegetables are 0 points. if you need a weight watcher diet buddy i'd be willing.

KymP, I used my WWP+ calc and you do indeed get 29/day 49/week. Smile

29 is the lowest possible number you can have.

totally frustrated with the weight watchers site! I spend more time looking up nutrition facts on other websites so I can calculate into points. I find that WW site doesn't have a very good database.. anyone else having trouble?

Many of us WW have joined SparkPeople.com; there is a "Fine Tune WW" SparkTeam that now has over 400 members. Many of us had to tweak the 29 points because we were just not losing weight. Several have been lifetime members who are now disgusted with the new PP+.
I am 5'3" and was 162 lb. when I first joined in January and was given the 29 points. I have reduced those points to 18-25 max; count bananas as 2 points, apples as 1 point; NEVER use any of the 49 weekly points or activity points (actually used some of the weekly points once when I went to a wedding); do not eat any sweets or junk food; exercise hard for one hour 6 days per week. I am consistently losing 1.2-1.4 pounds per week, so I know this tweak is right for me. Of course, 29 points works very well for several others. Bottom line----we're individuals.

Yes, sunstarzmoon, I'm having trouble. Mostly I have trouble calculating pointsplus on everything eaten throughout the day. Around dinner time, I get tired of the overcomplicated lookups and calculations.

I was using their phone app mostly, which isn't so great - at least not on the Android.

They could definitely use some feedback for improvements, but I've yet to do that.

Atkins talk
Are you eating enough fat and protein? Protein: 4-6 oz per meal Fat: 1-2 tblsp per meal Plus snacks. If you do that, your hunger should abate. Are is it cravings instead? HTH

Vegetable pasta
You can also use a mandoline to slice zucchinis (I wonder if butternut squash would work too?) to make a "wide-noodle pasta".

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
