Someone recently read my Weight Watchers Simple Start posts and asked me if I’d mind writing a few days of what I eat to have had success with Simple Start. I lost over 8lb in the first two weeks of following the Simple Start plan and would like to help others that are stuck for inspiration on what to eat whilst following Simple Start.
One thing that you need to understand from the outset is that Simple Start is incredibly restrictive but it’s also incredible flexible. Yes, you can only eat certain things but you can eat as much of them as you like. Simple Start will not work if you are trying to have meals out in restaurants or entertaining friends at home. My main success with Simple Start has been when I’ve had no plans and have just been able to focus on eating from the list.
As Simple Start can be incredibly filling Hubby and I would often have brunch instead of breakfast and lunch. Here are a few ideas for things to eat on Simple Start.
If you get peckish in-between meals, remember, you can eat anything from your Simple Start foods list! Make a sandwich, have some home made popcorn with artificial sweetener or cinnamon, a bowl of shredded wheat or some fruit. Also make sure you’re drinking enough and never, ever, count up the ProPoints values that you’re eating – Simple Start and ProPoints are completely separate. Eat what is on your list and only what is on your list – Simple Start is simple!
