The daily points are the minimum. And it's very important to get those in so that you are getting proper nutrition while still losing weight.
Having trouble? Try adding a few things from this list of healthy (but higher points) foods!:
- Nuts of all varieties
- Healthy oils (olive, canola, peanut, etc)
- Full fat or only reduced fat dairy products (as opposed to Fat Free)
- Whole grain breads
- Peanut butter or other nut butters
The above foods are still quite healthy when in moderation, and can be used to add points without adding a lot of volume, and therefore keeping us from that "overfull" feeling.
A salad with a couple tsps of oil used in the dressing, full fat cheese sprinkled over it with a small handful of nuts will still be good for you, tasty and will add points! =)
Best of wishes!
