Well, Suzieq... no one has any experienc with them because they just came out. the day you got them, was the week they were first introduced to the meeting rooms across the country. We're all playing with them to see how they work.

 

Let us know how you're doing. I'm alternating high carb/hi protein day by day.

rouenmom - there's no absolute right or wrong way to use those sheets but to get a true idea of how your body responds to the different approaches, you should probably try to stick w/ just one for at least a week. Fluctuating daily like that won't be harmful, it just won't give a clear overall picture.

FYI only the eating plans for the Higher Carb/Protein just came out. The options have been around since Winning Points came out. I personally am more satisified when I eat balanced so I can't help you out there.

As Jo stated above, there's no right or wrong way to use the worksheets. This is just another benefit of Weight Watchers. You can custom design your meals to satisfy YOU . We are all individuals and each of us has to decide what satisfies us and what sustains us the best and then we should eat those foods.

 

I do agree that in order to determine which satisfies you best you probably want to stick with one for at least a week. It's difficult to determine the results after just one day.

 

Have fun!

I have to say, it varies for me at different times which balance I prefer. In general, I am vegetarian and a bulk eater so high carb, high fiber is my usual mode. But when I notice that isn't working for me, if I up my protein it usually helps. In other words, I find I have to constantly adapt. I figure it is my body telling me it needs different things at different times.

 

One thing I would say. Even when I am eating higher carb, I definitely notice that I am better off if I have a small amount of protein with EVERY meal. I can't just eat toast at breakfast or I'm starving by 10am. As long as I have some dairy, an egg or some peanut butter my breakfast lasts way longer. If I snack on graham crackers, it lasts 30 minutes. Yogourt lasts longer.

girlinmotion, I'm the same way - protein definitely helps keep me satisfied longer. Here's a sample list for snack ideas that use basically good carbs, many w/ a little protein:

 

Fruit with 2 whole grain crackers.

 

One-half peanut butter sandwich on whole grain bread with raw carrots.

 

Whole wheat toast with peanut butter.

 

Carrot sticks, lower fat cheese stick and whole grain crackers.

 

2 cups Plain popcorn.

 

Plain yogurt mixed with fresh fruit.

 

6-8 oz. Low fat milk and banana.

 

1 oz. Low fat cheese with slice whole wheat bread and apple.

 

Whole grain cereal with low-fat milk.

 

Fruit smoothie made with low-fat milk and soft tofu (or protein powder).

 

Graham crackers and low-fat yogurt.

 

Cottage cheese with fresh fruit.

 

Hummus with whole wheat pita bread (add veggies).

 

Whole wheat sandwich or tortilla wrap with lean protein filling.

 

Seeds or nuts (high in fat, so use in moderation) and dried fruit.

 

Whole grain bagel with low-fat cream cheese.

 

Raw vegetables with low-fat yogurt dip and whole grain crackers.

 

Homemade whole wheat banana bread, spread with nut butter.

 

Homemade whole wheat bran muffin, with low-fat cheese or low-fat milk.

Thanks

HI

 

Been a lurker for some time but I thought my two cents might be of help.

 

My leader told us to try a high carb breakfast one day and see how we feel. Hungry after 2-3 hours?? And then the next day have a higher protein breakfast and see which one you get less hungry on.

 

It reminds me of "The Right Mix" wk6 from the previous books.

 

Hope that may be of help to someone. wave.gif

Well, I alternated days -- my day 1 was oct 23. My weigh in was this a.m. I"m down 5.2 lbs this week. Nice. And that was with 3 high carb days and 4 high protein days alternating.

I eat a high carb breakfast, usually a hearty bowl of oatmeal. The rest of my meals are a good pro/fat/carb mix. Oatmeal seems to be the only carb that I can eat by itself and keep me full.

 

I need the fat and protein to stick with me befor a workout.

Peanut butter is good stuff. Yeah, it has a lot of fat but it's the good kind. WW recommends adding 2 to 4 points of designated fats to your daily intake. I get mine with peanut butter. In fact, it's almost like dessert to me, I love it!

 

Other lowfat but high protein foods: tuna, chicken with skin removed, lean cuts of beef and pork. They don't sound so good for a mid morning snack do they. I'd take peanut butter any day over meat. smile.gif
