Default CORE program: successful?

Hi-- my wife just joined WW (again) and will be following the CORE program. She
loves the idea of not journaling everything, and accounting for every mouthful.

How successful have people been with this program, as opposed to the "old"
style program? Thanks.

I think it works better for me than Flex did. Over the summer a lot of junk
food crept into my menus. Empty points because they were available. Core
helped eliminate this junk plus got me losing weight again. I was recently
at my mother's for 10 days. It was hard to follow core 100%. I did the best
that I could and just made sure that I only ate until satisfied (not full).
I managed to come home weighing only 1 extra pound. That pound is now off
after 2 days of strict core eating. My scale is back to where it was the
morning I left. It works for me.

If your wife can follow the plan then it is worth the effort. I have seen
some outstanding losses on this plan. It does take a lot of extra planning
and preparation (where I fall down) but those that do really lose nicely on
this plan.

I think you should re-read your above paragraph - particularly, the
next time you get involved in worrying about or dealing with whether
or not something is strictly core and how to count it if there is a
question. Clearly, coming CLOSE to CORE worked quite well those 10
days. So, once again, we all learn that perfection is not always
"perfectly" necessary.

You did a great job. A pound fluctuation is normal and is
Maintenance. Congrats


Thanks Fred. I think that is the other reason that I like Core. It is easier
to stay OP even when I over eat. As long as I stick with the basic core list
of foods I am okay. I do fine until someone puts chips in front of me which
my daughter did for NYE.

success varies from person to person, it is not for me but many on this
group are doing better than they did on flex, best of luck, Lee

This brings me to thinking that losing on flex is better for me but maybe
when I get to goal core might work better, Lee, who maintained fine while
trying core
