Weight Watchers While Breastfeeding
For the latest information about the newly launched Weight Watchers PointsPlus system and weight watchers while breastfeeding in particular please read through this short post.
The new PointsPlus program differs from the old points plan in 2 important ways. First, calorific values are no longer used in the updated points formula. The old system took figures for fat, fiber and calories to produce a point value for an item of food. However, under the newly launched Weight Watchers PointsPlus program fiber, protein, carbohydrates and fat are used to work out a food value. Second, most both fruits and vegetables are allocated a zero point value. This is at variance with from the prior points system under which only vegetables were allocated a zero point value.
Before looking further at weight watchers while breastfeeding we should take a moment to consider the differences between following Weight Watchers and using a normal diet plan.
With the new Weight Watchers PointsPlus plan you have:
A fully tested which gives you the support you need as you learn not merely about eating but also about how to lead a healthy life.
The PointsPlus formula, which takes the complex science of how the human body processes different foods and distills it down into an easy-to-follow plan working on mere numbers.
A very detailed plan that assists you to lose weight and then maintain that weight loss by educating you on healthy eating.
A track record of success helping millions of people to lose weight stretching back for over 45 years.
A flexible plan which makes allowances for your personal circumstances and allows you to construct your own personal diet program.
When you are “on a diet” you will be getting:
A slimming program intended to help you shed pounds by focusing solely on what you eat and which does not cover such things as exercise or how you maintain weight loss into the future.
A rigid set of rules which usually focus on a single nutrient, omit entire classes of foods or require you to buy particular diet foods.
An assurance that you will lose that extra weight speedily and with virtually no effort, but which fails to tell you how to keep your weight off once you have shed it.
Endorsements frequently based on one scientific study designed to support the claims made for the diet.
An idea that does not provide for personal tastes or wishes.
Finally, before going forward to look at weight watchers while breastfeeding we should also take a look at several power foods recommended as part of the revised Weight Watchers PointsPlus plan.
