Weight Watchers Momentum Points System
Hi my name is Kat and I am a new member of the GG Bran blog but a loyal customer to GG Bran Crispbread. First let me say that I have recently been introduced to the new Sprinkles Product through a sample I orderd while visiting the site. WOW….I love them. (I know love is a strong word but…) I have to share something with you that I discovered, although I will guess this is old news.
I am currently following the Weight Watchers Momentum program which emphasizes a point system based on calories, fat, and fiber. I have been eating a light yogurt in the morning and have always crushed up some of my crispbread crackers in a bowl to add to my yogurt to add fiber. Well since I have joined the WWP I recently entered the numbers for my light yogurt into the points calculator and my yogurt was a 1.2 point food product. But….after adding a serving of Fiber Sprinkles and recalculating, the point value goes from 1.2 to .6 . That is a difference of -.6 points (yes that was a decrease). So now we have this very interesting thing where by adding a couple of servings per day of your product I either allow my self the opportunity to increase my daily intake of food without jeopardizing my daily points allowance recommended by Weight Watchers or I am decreasing my daily points and increasing the programs effect on my diet. Lets call this phenomenon “subtraction through addition”.
I am currently trying to stick to my Weight Watchers Momentum Points system without calculating the effect of the GG Bran on each meal or snack. The result is that I am loyal to the system and have decreased my consumption by 3 to 4 total points per day or over 10%. Do you see where I am going with this? I must say also that not only have I decreased the daily points load by 10% I also feel fuller based on the increased fiber.
Since I am sharing I will also add that the additional fiber has done wonders for my digestive system and it is my belief that it is helping me detoxify my body.
Thank you for such an amazingly simple addition to my diet.
