SmartPoints food plan
Eat all your favorite foods here's how ...
The science of SmartPoints1. Calories set the baseline for how many SmartPoints a food is worth.
2. We then factor in sugar and saturated fat (which raise the SmartPoints value).
3. We also look at protein (which helps lower it).
4. The goal: You’ll start eating more fruits, veggies, and lean protein and less sugar and unhealthy fat.Welcome to the SmartPoints Plan We want to help you reach your weight-loss goals, but we also want you to eat the foods you most enjoy. (Just smarter!) So, we’re going to help you build a positive, healthy relationship with food, one that can last a lifetime. How can we do all that? Meet SmartPoints, our unique plan that actively nudges you towards more nutritious food choices.Here’s how it works Every food and drink is assigned a SmartPoints value, one easy-to-use number that’s based on calories, saturated fat, sugar and protein. The reason for that is because numerous studies have confirmed the benefits of eating less added sugar and saturated fat and more protein – not just for weight loss, but for all sorts of other healthy reasons, too. So, by taking those three ‘things’ into account, on top of a food’s calorie content, the SmartPoints plan naturally steers you towards healthier choices and away from the not-so-healthy options.Spending your SmartPoints Every food has a SmartPoints value, based on its nutrition. You get a personalized amount of SmartPoints to spend on anything you like.
