I agree with dividing the points up to see what you have to work with. I still do a combination of core and flex to make sure I get the most bang for my points. I get 24 points a day and the biggest thing that helps to keep me comfortable on the hunger scale & low in points is fresh veggies that I tend to graze on all day.
