i don't think there's a cap to the points some days I have 15 activity points I eat them and still lose. The idea of them is to fuel your body for the exercise that day, that day is when your body needs it not 4 days later, you know what I mean? You can def do some trial and error with your points if you want but everyone I've talked to has best results when they eat all their allotted points. As you lose weight your points get lowered anyway so eat them while you got them!! haha good luck!
