Powerstart

So goodmorning to you all :)

In 2012 i lost just over 50 pounds using Weight Watchers propoints plan. I got stuck and luckily was asked to become my coaches assistent. If i hadn't done that i would have quite long ago. I never quite but all the lost weight i gained in the last year.

Now Weight Watchers Netherlands came with a new plan. It seemed perfect for me. It's a plan that gives you a power start to healthy eating. For me it was also a way to detox sugar !

This plan is about eating power foods. Foods that make you full and keep you full for a longer period. This plan also concentrates on how full you feel. You need to listen to your body so you learn how you feel. Instead just eating what you are told or counting points !

I started new years day ! So far i am doing well. My anti sugar headache went away on day three.
You do have to plan a little more to get the right foods in. Planning is good :) It makes you more aware and if you go to a store with a shopping list you are less likely to buy the wrong stuff.

  1. I don't think my comment went through... I had to look up quark. It looks like a mix between cottage cheese and cream cheese. I know you can do this! I'm in the same boat I gained my weight back also. Have a great day.

  2. Wikipedia says this :
    Quark is a type of fresh dairy product. It is made by warming soured milk until the desired degree of coagulation (denaturation) of milk proteins is met, and then strained.[1] Dictionaries usually translate it as curd cheese or cottage cheese, although most commercial varieties of cottage cheese are made with rennet, whereas traditional quark is not. It is soft, white and unaged, similar to some types of fromage blanc. It is distinct from ricotta because ricotta (Italian: "recooked") is made from scalded whey. It is similar to the Indian Chakka. Quark usually has no salt added.

  3. Hiya...I've toyed with going back to weight watchers...I lost 55lbs between oct 2011 to july 2012 and the program worked well for me. The thing that keeps me from returning is the fact that the program has "changed" at least 3 times since then and that overwhelms me (will I be able to learn it all over again?) I also got tired of having to write EVERYTHING down...I know...sad excuse. The ring is pretty....TTYL
