Question Calculating Exercise points

The WW program encourages healthy weight loss combined with exercise and members are given a “Points booster” slide chart at their third meeting to help count their exercise points.

Exercise points can then be added to your daily points target and used as food points. You cannot carry them over until the following week. Each week begins as a clean slate and you have to build up and use those exercise points each week.

You don’t have to use your exercise points if you don’t want to but some people find that eating their exercise points does help with their weight loss.

You may earn up to 28 exercise points per week.

Exercise does not have to feel like a chore. Pick an activity you enjoy doing so that you will remain interested and committed. Things like daily walks with your dog, bike riding with your kids or going on short weekend hikes with your partner are great forms of exercise. Have some fun by joining a dance class, a water fitness class or participate in a team sport like soccer, basketball or volleyball. For something a little quieter try pilates or yoga.

For some ideas on exercising please visit our exercise forum

or for weight lifting information http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/weight-resistance-training-80/

Here are some formulas that may help you calculate your exercise points:

Light Activity (you can feel it a bit but not too stressful):
Weight x Minutes x .000232 = Activity Points

Moderate Activity (you can feel your heart rate rise a bit and lightly perspite):
Weight x Minutes x .000327 = Activity Points

High Activity (heart rate rises and you break a good sweat):
Weight x Minutes x .0008077 = Activity Points
