The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
Boy this sounds easy

I just read a blog of a woman who got tired of counting points and just streamlined the WW system to suit her. I wanted to post it here but was following some links that she had posted and ended up losing it and can't find it again. |
She said that she made a copy of all the zero point foods and hung it in her kitchen. She tried to stick to the zero point foods other than the things below that she added.
She added 3 servings (one each meal) of olive or nut oil, avocado, dark chocolate, real butter or ghee.
She added 2 servings of whole grains a day
She added 3 ounces of extra lean red meat up to 3 times a week.
She added 2-3 servings of low-fat milk or cheese a day.
That's it. She stuck to this list religiously and only had one serving at a time of the added things. She lost an average of 10 pounds a month.
So if you get tired of looking up and counting points instead of giving up you might want to try this and see how it works for you.
Don't worry too much

About counting myself. The zero points fits me to a tee. Most of the things I eat are there except for sweets and they are out anyway. If itxs not on the list I count it. Not into a lot of grains and dsiry because my system don't handle them well. I should be lising really well, but I'm not. I'm pleased to finally be losing at all. |

To doing what works for you! Using my WW app and tracking my food has been such a part of my life for the past 2 1/2 years, that I canít imagine not tracking-but definitely think this is a good alternative for people who donít want to track! |

It's so engrained in me now and I pop on there anytime I eat and just log 'er up. I still only count carbs (alot of keto people count carbs, fat and protein and worry about "keto friendly" ingredients) Even that's too much for me so the carb count is perfect in my situation.|
Krista I use MFP too but

Was wondering how many carbs you eat. And is it net after subtracting fiber|
Personally, my goal is under 30
Posted by Krista on 7/5/2018, 8:18 am, in reply to "Krista I use MFP too but"
Most people I know who do keto shoot for 20 or less but I find that too restrictive, especially with my previous level of exercise. Yesterday I had 21. I think we need to find what works for us. I always said if I stopped losing on 30, I would go less but so far I haven't had to I "waste" alot though on sugartwin and Cool Whip.|
And yes that's net for me

There's not many foods I eat that have much to "subtract" though but it is net carbs.|

I love the concept of net carbs. When I mentioned it at my diabetes classes years ago,... the teacher said can't use it with diabetes. |
Posted by shirley on 7/5/2018, 2:09 pm, in reply to "Really"
does that mean if something is 10 carbs and 5 fiber, it is 5 net carbs|
