I got some questions about the new WW program, so I think I can give you an idea in a few words. The actual points foods count have not changed, but now there are 3 programs: green with 100 zero point foods, blue with 200 zero point foods, and purple with 300 zero point foods. Then on each program you have a point total for things you do need to count.
Fruits and veggies (except a few starchy ones) are zero points on all 3 programs. The blue program includes beans, chicken and turkey, eggs, and fish as zero points. Purple adds whole grain pasta and grains, cottage cheese, tofu, and potatoes. You can switch programs, but must stick to one program for 2 weeks at a time.
The way I am looking at it is that I intuitively eat the zero point foods. What WW says is that you eat to satisfaction. I am going to try the middle program, blue, with 200 foods I eat intuitively. If I have trouble, I will go back to the green plan. If I do well, I will check out the purple plan and see if I can eat those healthy grains intuitively. If I do nail that one, someday I may try everything intuitively including bread and a few sweets. At this point I do think it is kind to give myself limits on foods I tend to overeat.
Have you been following WATERMELLEN? She has been sharing her wonderful experiment with kindness and intuitive eating. She's had so many good blogs recently, but this is her most recent popular blog award winner. Check it out if you haven't already.
I've have been admiring her greatly and almost jealous that while I've been struggling and gaining or maintaining a higher weight than I want, she's been getting kinder to herself and less obsessed with food. I am thinking with this plan I may have a way to get there, and even if not, I may find a way to get closer.
OK. Time for me to do the Day 71 Challenge walk with the dog. Perhaps I will add the documentation picture below in a half hour. Edit: added

Do you count everything or eat some things (or everything) intuitively?
