Ww Core Plan Question Please Respond

Recommended Posts

After all the encouragement, I finally joined WW and I'm doing the core plan.

This is my first week but I'm not expecting any great results. Here's my problem-

I am really trying to use FF milk, and FF american cheese slices, as well as FF yogurt. I find that the FF versions taste like plastic and I am hungry after eating these foods. The milk tastes like I put water in my coffee and the cheese made my eggs taste weird.

HELP please! On Saturday I tried to use my regular 2% milk and 2% cheese, 99% yoplait yogurt, etc, and just counted the points from my weekly 35. Is this wrong? I used all the FF versions today and I found that I was not at all satisfied...the 2% keeps me full longer and I'm not looking for food. The FF cottage cheese wasn't that bad, but I would be much more satisfied with a smaller amount of the lowfat kind.

Please give me suggestions if any of you cannot eat the Fat Free foods either. I also found that the sugar free foods are full of sugar substitutes which are not very healthy for us either.

I really want to have a positive result with the Core Plan but some of the choices are just not working.

Thanks!

I am new to the WW Core Plan and have tried to eat FF foods like cheese, yogurt, pudding and milk. I am finding just within the past two days that my stomach is upset when I have this. I also tried Splenda in my coffee last night and same thing, didn't like the taste and upset my stomach. I also have such an empty feeling when I substitute these foods for my 2% and lowfat versions.

I have been gluten free for a year with 100% positive diet response but now find for some reason these foods are not working. I don't like the taste but more importantly, I'm worried that they are aggravating my system. I'm wondering if its the sugar substitutes they put in these products.

Anyone have this problem? I am thinking that I will stay with my 2% foods and just work within my points allowance for "extras".

Please help if you have any suggestions!

I have not been on Weight Watchers but I did have to eat a very low fat diet prior to having my gallbladder removed. I did not find any edible replacement for hard cheese. Take a look at the spreadable cheeses such as Laughing Cow lite for less fat. As for the others, you might try replacing the low fat versions with fat free versions one at at time. I eat nonfat yogurt with sliced strawberries and/or bananas.

Hope you find acceptable substitutes.

I do a modified form of the Core plan. I don't use any fat-free products except for the yogurt I make my smoothies with. I eat smaller amounts of the regular foods, and severely limit the junk. By severely limiting the junk, I mean I only use 20-25 of the weekly flex points. I don't count the flex points for my regular food. To make limiting my portion size easier, I use a child's plate. I don't like the hungry feeling I get if I eat fat-free and very low-fat foods.

I agree about the sugar substitutes. I would rather just use real sugar as use all of the substitutes. I am leary of them, and I don't like the way they taste.

I have worked for WW, as a receptionist, after losing 70 lbs following the birth of my daughter. As a staff member, I was required to try the core plan for 2 weeks, before it was released to the public. I gained weight, consistently, while using this plan. The FF versions of the foods were making me SICK, SICK, Sick. I could NOT do it.

I found that I'm more of a "quality" than "quantity" person. I would so much rather have a half cup of full fat, full calorie, yummy tasting ice cream, than say a whole cup of artificially sweetened, low cal, low fat, low yum - high chemical tasting ice cream. FF products leave me hungry and wanting "more taste."

The best way for ME to survive core was to modify it. I, like the previous poster, seriously limit the "junk" and stay away from processed foods. I concentrate on the lean means, the veggies and fruits, and the full taste - full value treats that I have ONCE in a GREAT while. It makes life easier, the weight loss easier, and limits my deprivation. I don't do well, at all, when I'm feeling deprived.

Thanks to everyone for making me feel like I'm still on track and correct in my thinking!

I feel so much better today having put a very small amount of 2%milk in my coffee and 1 slice of 2% cheese in my egg white omelette this morning. I have not looked for anything to eat until now!

So if you don't use the ff foods, are you still logging the points from your weekly allowance for the low fat foods? I really don't care if I go through 5-6 points a day to keep me feeling deprived. I will make it up with exercise anyway.

Now I feel better!
