Hi girls- sorry I didn't respond sooner on this- I've been gone.
I don't know how the Wendie plan would work if you altered the points. The goal is to keep your metabolism burning higher, not allowing it to settle at the amount of food you're eating everyday like it would if you just ate your minimum everyday without using flex points. I totalled up the points using the WP and at the end of the week, even after the super high day, I still have, I think, 7 extra flex points. So I'm not going over points at all and I don't see any reason to cut points. In fact, you could add points (up to those 7 extra flex) if you wanted to and still be OP with flex.
I can't say how well it works or how it might work if you alter. I know I'm losing at a good rate (around 2.5 a wekk once I divided my total loss by weeks on program). It makes sense to me, and it is easier for me since the flex points are worked in to the week already- it's easier for me to follow a strict plan than regulate my use of the flex points.
And besides, the super high day is fantastic!! Although Lisa is right, sometimes it is really hard to get in all the points on that day!! (Just think, before I started WW, everyday was a super high day, and now I can't fathom eating that much!! )
Hope this helps. I'm no expert on the wendie plan, but if you have more Qs, feel free to ask!
