Smart Points Guide: McDonalds

Eating Out: McDonalds

Weight watchers has changed from their points plus & pro point system and developed a new ww smart point system. For any of you still following the old plan and considering moving over  to new 2016 smart points i thought it would be interesting to compare the two plans side by side. You will notice some foods have a huge jump in smart point values compared to there old points/ pro plus values. i beleve the reflects the new weight watchers plans intention if focusing on making more filling and healthy (smart) choices hence there new name smart points.

My Food Diary - How to maintain a healthy low weight. 5 tips for weightloss + What I ate on a 1200 calorie - 1500 cal a day diet


I thought i would share with you how i maintain a size 6 dress size, i think it's important not to be fooled by looking at models and movie stars who say the don't diet! that's not reality. I'm no longer on a diet after reaching a goal weight. I got a shock a while back when i calculated my BMI and realised i was 'Clinicaly obese' WHAT?! I guess being a uni student, on a budget, $5 pizza was at the top of my priorities; not health. 
Now I'm fitting into size 6 skinny jeans - and before you ask yes I'm within my healthy BMI range, i could even lose a few more kilos and stay a healthy BMI. The joy's of being 150-something-cm tall, is that i can be a lower weight than most and still maintain a healthy weight. But to be honest weight doesn't matter to me anymore, i would rather gain a few kg if it meant i was putting on lean muscle. 
For me, an average day is between 1200 and 1500 calories. sometimes i eat more if I'm working a lot (i waitress) but sometimes i struggle to hit the 1200cal. this sounds like a dieters dream, but believe me i need that 1200 cal minimum or i end up dizzy at work or the next day i find I'm overeating to an excess because I'm so hungry from the day before. And when I'm starving... anything go's (bring on that deep fried chocolate bar with greasy chips and a side of mayo - actually I'm exaggerating, but only a little).
