TODAY IS THE DAY – FREESTYLE IS HERE!
So I have been doing WW Freestyle for a few months know and I thought I’d share some observations.
FAR more no track proteins
New no track starch – I’m looking at you corn
easier to maximize your points for what matters for you
other lean proteins still have the same smart point value
since a lot of our food is now no track, it’s easy NOT to track
it is a plan that needs to be prepped for now more than ever
Overall, I think it’s a decent tweak. Do I love it? Maybe. In truth, it feels like Simply Filling without some of the other benefits Simply Filling affords. For me, I don’t know that I will ever gnaw on a chicken breast when I’m hungry; that doesn’t feel natural. I’ve found myself leaning very heavily on my Simply Filling knowledge.
Let’s break down a few key points:
eggs-I’ll give that a hell yeah….however after two months (by my choice) of eating eggs everyday, I’m over it.
boneless skinless chicken breast – great. Free protein. At only 2 smart points per serving, it wasn’t a big part of my budget.
corn – I could take it or leave it
beans – now this one is interesting – chili could now be free with lean ground turkey so I do see merit here.
The first thing I realized when it was introduced was two things:
Am I being penalized for eating other proteins because it sure felt like it!
I better get damn good with meal prepping…FAST.
Freestyle will force you to be at least a bit of a prepper if you’re not – just to help avoid killing your points.
I’ll give it a pass at this point; there are components I like and components I don’t.
And to answer the question you REALLY care about: I’ve lost and gained on Freestyle.
So – as the week goes, let’s here your thoughts!
