It is also the ____________________ wt loss program. More physicians recommend WW than all other programs combined.

24 The POINTS SYSTEM The POINTS system is the foundation of the wt Loss System. Within the POINTS system, every food is given a POINTS value based on its calorie, fat, and fiber content. Based on your current wt, you’ll choose your meals to stay within a daily POINTS range.

25 The POINTS ACTIVITY SYSTEM The POINTS activity system assigns a POINTS value to physical activity based on your current wt, ______________ of activity, & level of intensity. Activity POINTS can be swapped for additional food POINTS.

26 SUPPORT GROUPS Increasing your knowledge, having role models to follow, sharing your challenges, and celebrating your successes are a vital part of long- term wt management. This is why WW offers this option when you join.

27 Here’s how to start: Once you know your current wt, you can pick out your range of POINTS. The more you weigh the _________ food you need to eat in order to lose wt in a safe and healthy way. Now, you simply choose foods to keep you within your daily POINTS range.

28 FIND YOUR POINTS RANGE: Your current wtDaily POINTS range Less than 150 pounds18- 23 150- 174 pounds20- 25 175- 199 pounds22- 27 200- 224 pounds24- 29 225- 249 pounds26- 31 250- 274 pounds28- 33 275- 299 pounds29- 34 300- 324 pounds30- 35 325- 349 pounds31- 36

29 AND REMEMBER: Be sure you always use at least the _________ # of POINTS in your range. This will keep your metabolism fueled while losing wt at a safe rate. As you lose wt, your body needs fewer POINTS. You can save POINTS too! POINTS not used one day can be “banked” for another. However they must be used the week they are earned and use no more than 10 “banked” POINTS per day.
