Cool Old exchange program

Hi everyone! I am just coming back to weight watchers and I do not like the point system. I am looking for the old diet. I think it was called the exchange program or the personal selection program. I tried doing a search here using the keywords exchanges and selections, but could find nothing. Can anyone help?!?!?!? I hope I can find it because it was easy for me to stick to. Thanks!

Becca - I don't think I have those materials any more. I LOVE the points system. Have you given it a try lately?

I agree with Rosegarden - but also, if you were liking the Exchange Program, I would give CORE a try.

And keep the PointsPie in the back of your head - guidelines to eating higher carb, higher protein, veggie...

Give it a shot, we'll support ya!

First off what is it about Points you don't like. It makes weight loss much more flexible.

However if it is structure because you want a healthier dietary need Core is that way.

There are some points pies that also offer the healthier dieary needs that I can repost again to help you with what 'selections' should be made.

Also if you can find an old cookbook (try looking for Quick Start Cookbook) from the selection plan it is in the front of all of those books. Additionally the Richard Simmons Deal a Meal is basically the same as the W/W selections/exchanges program.

Cool How does it work?

How does the core program work? I keep hearing all these great things about it, but I am unsure how it works.

Becca, CORE give you a set list of foods that you can eat, "until you are satisfied", along with 35 points a week to splurge or feel satisfied with, or to enjoy non CORE foods. It can be great if you hate counting, or eat a lot of fresh fruits & veg as well as whole grains.

The key thing about CORE is you don't get white flour products and there is no sugar; basically it's like South Beach since you are only eating complex carbs and whole grains (i.e. whole wheat pasta, ww breads, etc).

I would encourage you to go to a meeting to check it out - first one is free - and you can get all the details.

There is a lot of info on the web about it too, just google CORE foods list.

Thanks Kelly - you're fingers are faster than mine ;-)
Ladybug - I find that reviewing that chart helps me in times when I'm on point, but still hungry. Shifting from carb focused to protein focused helps me stay full, etc., or shifting to carbs if I'm feeling like I need some detox from meat.
