I want to talk Freestyle, because I know there are many having a hard time with it because they think they'll overeat and they prefer a past plan.
That's fine, I get it.
But I don't know exactly why anyone would hate Freestyle....let's see what's happening with Freestyle.
Vegetables. With the exception of potatoes, all vegetables are now free. On SmartPoints all veggies were free except potatoes, corn and peas. So other than potatoes the change is minimal here. I can't believe anyone has an issue with this. Will you truly overeat peas and corn? Does anyone overeat in vegetables?
Fruit. On Smartpoints, fruit was zero. Guess what? On Freestyle, fruit is zero. No change here, so no complaint can be made.
Chicken breast/Turkey breast/Seafood. On Smartpoints, these particular proteins were very low in points. You could eat quite a bit for 2-3 points. On Freestyle, these are free. There's a change here but a very minimal one. I find it hard to believe that anyone was eating 6 chicken breasts at a meal. If on Smartpoints you only ate one (or possibly two), then only eat that much now. Yep, it really is that simple, you don't need a "point" to limit you. If you do, then points have become more important then the food you're eating and that shouldn't be.
Eggs. Eggs have gotten a bad rap through the years but as it turned out they shouldn't of! A good filling protein that was 2 pts on Smartpoints and are now zero on Freestyle. Eggs are very filling and I can't believe anyone is overeating on them. If you are, you're doing something wrong.
Beans. Another freebie with Freestyle and points on Smartpoints. Does anyone really eat beans to an extreme? I may have them once a week, but normally less than that.
So see? The changes are minimal and doable. YOU CAN DO IT!
