I’ve been doing Freestyle for a few weeks now. It has some ups and downs, as all changes do. Below are some of my thoughts on what’s working…and what’s not.
- With the addition of zero point chicken, meal preparation is easier. Crock pot chicken, chicken on salad, chicken wrap, omelette with chicken, chicken soup, …the list is endless!
- When I first started Weight Watches, I was really energized by learning about new foods and options. These changes resparked that same interest. I have been discovering lots of uses for fat-free plain greek yogurt (used as sour cream, with fruit, on pancakes). It’s been fun!
- Eating out is harder! With the addition of zero point foods came a reduction in daily points. This makes eating out so much more difficult. The commercials say this is easier on freestyle, but that has not been my experience. Have any of you had success on freestyle eating out?
- I don’t know about you but I have lost a little confidence in the points. I used to feel really confident that zero point foods would lead to weight loss. Apples, celery, lettuce, etc. lead to clear weight loss. No matter how much I eat, I knew I would lose. Are you really telling me if I eat eggs and chicken breast all day every day, I’ll lose weight? I can’t imagine so.
So, what are your thoughts? How is freestyle working for you? I don’t know about you, but I am interested in results. I trust research, and these changes are research-based, so I’m stickin’ with it. I’d love to hear about what’s working for you!
