One nice thing, is the points are very straight forward. You earn more points by exercising, so it is good incentive to MOVE, and you can count things like mowing the lawn or shoveling stalls as exercise. And foods with low calories and high fiber are less points than high fat, high sugar foods. But with so many options....I remember changing from cheesecake (9pts) for my birthday to angelfood cake with fruit. Normally, that would make me feel deprived, but I felt like I got away with something, to be able to eat cake and not cost a lot of points.
