I am losing weight a lot slower with the new WW. Anyone else experiencing this? 

 

The zero point food still has calories. Can it be that? Ugh, so frustrating to calculate.

Zero point foods were never meant to be calorie free. The "green circle" foods also have calories. WW wants you eat more of those green circle foods (higher in fiber, lower in fat).  I am finding this time around there are less points to garner. In 2013-2014 when I was a member, I had 49 flex points. I always do the simply filling method.  Now, I've got 28, which is 4 points a day. WTF? It used to be 7 flex points a day or 49. I lost on that. Now, if I take 1/2 avocado for lunch, I've used 4 points right there. Avocado isn't what is causing me to gain weight. And that's healthy fat and a better choice than some fake cookie product for the same amount of points (heaps of chemicals!).

 

If I input 1/2 cup almond milk that will equal 0 points. If I do 1 cup, that's 1 point. I know all I need is 1/2 cup for my morning coffee. It still has calories but yet it's 0 points. Again, unsweetened almond milk isn't causing the gain.

 

So, I find this time around more restrictive. But, the unending protein servings highly permissive and satisfying but dangerous. How much can 1 person eat to feel full but then overeat on calories?  I'm not doing well at the moment and that's due to depression rather than following the program. I'll just go off an binge eat and wont care.

Don't get stuck in the paralysis of perfection.

Yeah, I left WW when the brought in the new system. I had reached my goal at that stage anyway. It seems designed to get you to lose weight slower. Their old way was the best way but they said it made people lose the weight too quickly.

I just made another post that when they changed the rules they no longer catered for people at lower weights. So your points allowance was the same at 120lbs and 210lbs. This was in 2010 but I gather from other posts here it hasn't changed again. I would actually gain weight if I ate 2,000 cals a day which is the points allowance given for some!
