HELP. I NEED TO EAT MORE

Postby GumBoots » Thu Apr 03, 2008 1:43 pm

As the title says. I need to eat more food today. I have eaten breakfast than a snack than lunch than a snack and I already have my afternoon snack, dinner and dessert set out but I still have about 8 weight watchers points I need to use after all this. How do I do this? GRRRR this is frustrating me.
I have healthy foods here to snack on but should I eat them and when should I have them?
Thanks in advance..

Wish I had that problem.

What I do with my points is for example I get 21 per day:

Brekkie: 5 points
snacks: 4 points
lunch: 5 points
dinner: 7 points

Maybe try adding things to each meal during the day so you don't have so many left at night.

If you're trying to add more points into your day, maybe try making your snacks more substantial?

Jatz crackers (low-fat ones) with cottage cheese = 2 points
Jatz crackers with low-fat cheddar cheese = 2.5 points
2 pieces of fruit per day
If you like sweets/desserts then work these into your daily points too (though prob not good to do this everyday)
Add some bread into your lunch = 1-2 points
Nut bars = 1.5 points (I eat the trail bars)


Hope these ideas help???
Cheers,
Kate

What about having a handful of nuts? They're quite high in calories so only a few of them should bring you up to your necessary points, but they're packed with healthy fats and nutrients so they're incredibly good for you.
