You know I'm a huge fan of iTrackBites (who wouldn't be? It's WW for 1/10 of the cost), but with the new WW plans the app needs a little work around to make the Green plan work on iTrackbites!
The information in this post is directly from an iTrackBites coach and deemed accurate at time of posting.
How to Do the WW Green Plan on iTrackBites
It's very simple to do WW Green on iTrackBites!
Sugar Smart = Green WW Plan
You get the same number of Bites (Points) on the Sugar Smart Program that you do on the Green Plan. The difference is, you need to set up rollovers.
Go into your Settings, 4th line down, go to extra allowance. Add in rollovers as a type of activity.
Under Activity Allowance, make sure you have Weekly selected. So now they will add up cumulatively throughout the week.
This is a PRO feature but if you want to use the free program only, just remember your daily rollovers.
Dumpy to Diva explains how to do the Green Plan on iTrackBites in the video below:
I have my secondary tracking set up as MACROS. I don't care about calories so much, so Macros make sense for me.
Can You Lose Weight on the WW Green Plan?
Yes, yes, yes you can! The Green Plan is the best plan for those who need accountability.
Why should you switch from WW to iTrackBites? Honestly, you don't have to! You can stick with WW if you love the program and don't mind the extra cost. But iTrackBites uses the same formulas, is accurate, and is about 1/10 of the price of WW Online.
- cost: iTrackBites costs $36 for the year (using this link for 40% off makes it $36 if you use COACH_SMILEY as the code. You need to put in the code to save the MOST $$$), WW is $16+ for the month, and it's the same formula! UPDATE JAN 2021 — sign up for a free account, then use code COACH_SMILEY after your profile is set up. Click DISCOVER PRO, enter the promo code, and you'll get iTrackBites for just $24.99 a year!! Use this tutorial if you're unsure on how to use a promo code on iTrackBites. (They keep changing this!! So I update this tutorial often.)
- choices: I can choose PointsPlus, Freestyle, or any other plan I want with iTrackBites. Even with the new WW changes, they only offer 3 plan options (not PointsPlus).
- logs: You can export your tracker data by the week, month, or quarter with iTrackBites. WW does not give you access to quarterly data.
- accuracy: I've found inaccurate info in the WW app due to members submitting and not paying attention to the right numbers. With iTrackBites, I know if I see the green check, it's been verified as accurate. This puts my mind at ease!
