I chose Core because I love the idea of being able to eat when I'm truly hungry. On Flex, I was always hoarding my points and constantly worrying about food. Now, on Core, I know what I can eat and what I can't, and if I'm hungry, I pick up a piece of fruit or whatever and eat! It does take more planning and cooking than Flex, but I find it's worth it. I have 3 little girls at home, and they're eating more healthily too. They don't know the difference between brown and white rice, whole wheat and regular pasta. Fruit is one of their favorite snacks. I really think Core eating is the healthiest way to go.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes. If you do choose to go Core, I'd suggest you give it at least a month. It takes a while for your body to adjust to all the whole foods, but when it does, it's wonderful. Give it your all - Core doesn't work very well halfway.
