How do you divide up your points? Do you try to do the same amount for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Dinner is usually my highest meal. I usually have 4-5 pts. for breakfast, 8-9 pts for lunch and the remaining for dinner and snacks. I get 30/day.

I get 26 points and usually have 11 points shared between breakfast & lunch
and have 11 for dinner, then 4 for any snacks. Try and keep the extra pp for weekends or special outtings.

I get 36 points per day.
5-6 for breakfast
8-9 for lunch
10-12 for dinner
The rest is divided up between snacks throughout the day. Though I will admit, I often eat only 33-34 points. Somedays 36 is just too much.

I usually have 6 for breakfast and between 6 and 8 for lunch and the balance of the 29 points for the rest of the day. I am thinking I may need more at lunch since I am getting the munchies late afternoon. Perhaps up the protein.

I do WW (wendie plan style) and IF (intermittent fasting) so I usually just have 2 big meals with a couple snacks in between. The big meals are approximately 10-12pts each, snacks 3-5 pts each.

I'm allowed 41 pts per day right now. Between breakfast & lunch I eat 10-11 points and the rest I save for dinner / evening because that's when I seem to be the hungriest. :)

On a normal day, I use between 6-8pts per meal and with only 26pts a day it's hard sometimes! But I always make sure to use the Points Allowance only for a meal if it's a bit higher in points than I'm used to especially when I'm not at home and have gone to a friends or family's house for dinner

Last time I did weight watchers my largest meal was dinner and my smallest was breakfast. This time when I sign up again I'm going to try using an even amount of points for my meals and fruit for snacks. I had too many problems with hunger last time.

Breakfast is usually 3-5. Lunch is 7-12. Dinner is the rest. I get 31 points, fixing to be 30.

I just joined WW and am allowed 26 points. Is that low?
I have about 5 for breakfast and lunch, 10 for dinner and 6 for snacks.

Right now I get 32. Breakfast is 8-10, Lunch about 10, Dinner 10-13. The rest is for snacks, but I have found a bigger protein filled breakfast means I don't need as many snacks.

I was curious about this too so thanks for posting!

I get 26 points daily.

I use about 6 points for break/lunch/dinner and then the rest for snacks, drinks.

Karen - 26 is the lowest WW goes now, so no it's not too low if that's what they calculated for you. I started at 28 points... ahhh good times.

My leader suggest using half your points for breakfast and lunch and the other half for dinner and snacks. That works out well for me.

I am currently on 32 DP, and I usually do:

Breakfast: 8
AM Snack: 3
Lunch: 8
PM Snack: 1
Dinner: 12

Treat/Dessert: 3 (EP)

I try to earn 4 activity points 5 times per week (all walking), with 2 days off from activity - usually Thursday & Friday as I'm getting tired nearing the end of the work week.

I stay completely away from eating back activity points (that was my mistake in the past), and only dip into EPs for that 3 point daily treat (hey, its my sanity...fyi, if any one is interested...4 mini chocolate covered flipz pretzels, yummm!!! :)))).

Doing only 3 EPs per day = 21 EPs used per week, which gives me a big remainder ('hopefully' a little more weight loss)

I'm using the old points so I have 18. Breakfast is 5, lunch around the same, I usually only have an afternoon snack, 1pt then the rest for dinner.

I too try and save 1/2 my points (13) for the evenings. Unless I know I need more or less, then I divide them up.
