Default Old selection Plan

Is anyone doing the old weight watchers selection plan? That is the only program that I have been able to lose on and I am thinking about trying it again.

Is there anyone who has tryed it again and they are having good results with it?

Have you looked at how you are spending your points compared to the categories before you totally give up real life and go back to selections? I would feel so deprived and depressed if I went back. I like being the adult and choosing my foods and spending my points by following "Eating by the Numbers" -- somewhere on my computer here I have a journal that combines the selection plan with points if you want me to I'll hunt it down.

Thumbs down

Kelly,
I would be so grateful if you could post the comparison of the points and selection plan. I ordered an old WW cookbook with the hope that it would have the selection plan contained in it.
It wasn't very clear, so I'd love to see the selections for women.

I love the points plan and am finally successful again with Flexpoints, but my friend hates the points and needs reminders on the selections.
Thanks,
Judy

I was able to find the Smart Start Plan online!! This is the plan that I used to lose my weight. I made Lifetime and have kept the weight off since 1996. I found that the structure of the Selection plans worked better for me while losing. The Points plan has been great for helping me maintain.

Scroll down to the bottom to see suggested "Breakfasts" "Light Meals" and "Main Meals"
I will try to paste the info into this message, in case it helps anybody.

The one-week SMART START helps you jump-start you weight loss journey. Its structure helps get you in control right away. SMART START is simple. No meal planning. No tracking what you eat. Just delicious, quick-to-prepare meals you're sure to enjoy. And the weight loss you'll see from the beginning can help motivate you to reach your goal. In addition, SMART START fits right in with the array of choices you'll be making in the weeks ahead to ensure that the Weight Watchers program fits your lifestyle.

Cutting fat and eating healthfully, without feeling deprived, is easy with SMART START. Inside you'll also find tips for eating out, staying satisfied and keeping nutritionally fit. With SMART START you'll begin learning how to lose weight and live more healthfully right away!

SMART START will help get your weight loss efforts off to a great start. Meals have already been planned for you. Simply eat a breakfast, light meal, main meal and a snack every day. By eating the portions specified in the menus, you'll be learning about portion control - the hallmark of weight management. And by enjoying the variety of foods offered in each meal, you'll be eating nutritiously. Each day, choose any breakfast listed, light meal, main meal and snack. Combine them in any way you like. SMART START is designed to fit your lifestyle. So if you prefer to eat a main meal during the day and a light meal in the evening - go right ahead. If you want a snack in the morning rather than at night, that's fine too. SMART START is also designed to be flexible. Be sure to check out "Making Substitutions" and "Eating Out on SMART START" so that you can follow the plan - even on the most challenging days!

Special Notes

MEN: Your nutritional needs are greater, so you need to:

DOUBLE the serving size of fruit for your breakfast or snack


Add ONE of these choices each day:
1 tsp margarine
2 tsp reduced-calorie margarine
1 tsp mayonnaise
2 tsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
1 tsp oil
1/2 Tbsp salad dressing


Add ONE of these choices each day:
2 slices bread
4 slices reduced-calorie bread
1 1/2 oz breadsticks
2 oz pita
6 Graham cracker squares


Add ONE of these choices each day:
2 oz cooked or 3 oz uncooked lean beef or pork
2 oz cooked or 3 oz uncooked chicken or turkey
4 oz cooked or 5 oz uncooked fish
4 oz water-packed tuna
3 oz nonfat cheese
4 oz cooked beans or chickpeas
4 oz firm tofu


LEARNING NEW HABITS

Any safe and sensible weight loss journey involves bringing new habits into your life. Establishing new habits not only enhances your ability to lose weight, it's critical for maintaining your weight loss and a healthful lifestyle. Starting today:

Practice portion control. Eating the right amount of food is critical to losing weight. You can eat too much of foods that are good for you.


Closely follow the menus, paying special attention to the amount of each food. If needed, weigh or measure the food to be sure that you're using the correct portion. Buy a food scale for your kitchen if you don't already have one.


Drink 6 to 8 glasses (1.5 to 2 L) of water every day. It not only curbs your appetite, water helps regulate body temperature and carries nutrient through the body. For variety, add a lemon or lime wedge to water or try an unsweetened, flavored sparkling water over ice.


Become more physically active. You don't need to become an athlete. Simply look for more opportunities in your daily life to move more.


MAKING SUBSTITUTIONS

Don't have apple juice in the refrigerator? No problem. You may make limited substitutions in any of the SMART START menus. Simply see if the food you want to substitute is in one of the following boxes. If it is, swap it with another food in the same box. For example, you may swap 1/2 medium grapefruit for 1/2 cup apple juice, but not for one slice of bread. Be sure to note the portion sizes.

STAYING SATISFIED ON SMART START

With SMART START, there's no need to ever feel deprived. If you have the urge to eat, try one (or more) of the following tips:

Drink water. Jazz it up with lots of ice and a slice of lemon or lime or try noncaloric flavored seltzer
Munch on vegetables. Eat them whenever you want, in addition to your meals. Keep a supply of freshly cut vegetables (e.g. carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower) in your refrigerator (not starchy vegetables like corn, potatoes or legumes)
Drink coffee, tea or diet soda in reasonable amounts
Eat slowly and enjoy your meal. You'll feel more satisfied with a lot less
Take a 10-minute walk to be sure you're not confusing hunger with boredom
Check the time of the day. If you find the urge to eat happens the same time every day, plan to eat your snack before the hunger strikes.
