Thread: Points Plus vs. SFT as opposed to Points vs. Core

  1. Default Points Plus vs. SFT as opposed to Points vs. Core

    Has anyone found SFT/CORE to be less appealing to do now that the Points Plus is out? (I'm not wanting to judge or critisize, just curious about people's experiences!)

    I did Core a couple of years ago, and absolutely loved it- I did not want to count a points all the time and you could not have made me swithc!

    Now I've been back for a few weeks and started back on SFT. After a disapointing 3rd weigh-in I went back and estimated the points I had eaten the previous week and to my surprise I was eating fewer points than my daily and weekly allotments. I was shocked by that and decided to give Points Plus a shot for a bit, sice it allows me a bit more freedom in what kinds of food I'm eating.

    I'm wondering if other BCB'rs out there may have had similar reaction, or any other insights when/if switching back and forth.

    Cheers!

    I did Core in 2005 (wow, that was a long time ago!) and did very well. Even though I only lost an average of a pound a week, I lost steadily and met my goal in due time.

    I have never done as well losing weight as I did with Core. I do not do well with the weighing and measuring and points counting fir every single thing.

    I am two days back into the "old Core" and feeling good, but I need to set my sights on doing well for 3 weeks, then another 3 weeks, and so on.

    Hi Mysticpi and Tegteg,

    I am an infrequent poster since I'm on maintenance and I've been eating plant-based for 1.5 years now...but I do come here to read how Buddies are doing.

    I've been wanting to see how people feel about Points Plus and read about how they're doing.

    I remember when Core came out (August, 2004) and so many people thought they had found their "answer". It was like, "They'll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands!"

    A few changes were introduced over the years and many people here stuck with "Core Classic", or added small changes.

    So I'm still wondering how it's all going. I know Soda was like you, Tegteg. She lost steadily on Core until she was at goal. I can't believe how many people got to maintenance and remained strong strong supporters.

    I wish you Buddies the best!

    May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

    Carol,

    That's how I was when I did Core a few years ago- You couldn't have paid me to switch. Mind you I didn't stick with it, but still, I loved it! Which is why I'm so surprised at myself for wanting to try Points Plus.

    It could be that I am eating differently this time around. Back then I was close to vegan- and now I eat animal products (and can't stand fat free dairy!)

    Back then I also seem to remember being put off with having to count points for fruit (when first looking at my flex/Core materials)...
