Default Flex question (out of curiosity)

How often do you eat your flex points? Do you eat them in one day or do you spread them out? Do you lose more if you don't eat them?

Thanks so much.

you should do what works best for you, if you have an event coming up that week use them then or if you are a little extra hungry a few days then divide them up or a lot hungry one day use them all at once. I'm counting calories now but when i was on WW i also used all my flex and all my activity points (i like to eat) and i lost a couple pounds at least every week. every one is different though so try it out and see what happens. good luck!

If I know I have a special event coming up, I bank them for that. I use activity points the day I earn them or not at all.

At other times, I use 2-3 flex points for a particular day.

It didn't make much difference to my weight loss in the long run. I feel fine about eating all the WPA, or leaving most of it there.

Best wishes.

I try not to eat them, but if I go over on my points for the day I dip into them to cover it. I look at it like overdraft protection LOL

I have only used all but 3 one time (I goofed and pigged out on pizza), other than that I usually have about 25-30 left each week. I lost weight both weighs, but when I only had 3 left I felt pretty stressed as to whether or not I was going to gain that week. I prefer to have them as a back up. Quite often when I do use them it's only 1-2 added on to a day to have an extra something.
