Default Activity points - Should I be using them?

Hey y'all! I've been very active the past few weeks and just got back on plan about a week ago. My question is for activity points -- should I be eating more than my allotted daily points and swapping for activity points? I am concerned that even with eating my normal points (around 35/day) I might be taking in TOO few calories for the amount I am burning. Any input is appreciated!

I never use all of them, but they are nice to have around.

I would use the activity points, because when you eat your normal intake of 35 points, you are still going to lose anyways without exercise, but once you burn some of those calories that you've eaten you have to replace them! There are guidelines as to what constitutes as activity points..depending on how hard you work out/exercise.

For example if you can talk during exercise- its less activity points
If you can barely talk while breaking a sweat- its more activity points

Im sure you have the guidelines for that somewhere and if not they are on the web!! You will still lose weight if you substitute your activity points.
