The Healthy Eating Zone

How you eat can change day to day. Sometimes you might be a little over your Budget, sometimes a little under—and either way, you’re doing great!

Looking for some motivation to help you stay on track? The #bluedotchallenge was created by our amazing members on Connect as a way to challenge themselves to stay within the Healthy Eating Zone each day.

What is the Healthy Eating Zone?

One of the ways our program encourages healthy and balanced eating in the real world is through the Healthy Eating Zone, which is your daily PersonalPoints Budget plus a little wiggle room.

The Healthy Eating Zone if proof that you don’t have to be “perfect” to be on track for the day!

Does the Healthy Eating Zone change? 

Your Healthy Eating Zone will be personalized to you and will range from 8 Points below your starting daily PersonalPoints™ Budget to 10 Points above it.

So if your daily PersonalPoints Budget is 24, you can get a blue dot if you track between 16 and 34 Points in a day.

We established this range (-8/+10 from your starting daily Budget) to give you more flexibility day-to-day. The lower end of the range encourages you to make sure you’re eating and tracking your meals throughout the day (stopping after morning coffee will leave you shy of the Healthy Eating Zone range) and the upper end of the range accounts for your ability to use your weeklies and any Points you earn as you see fit!

What Are the Blue Dots For? 

They keep you motivated and help you see your progress. When you track within your personalized Healthy Eating Zone, you earn a blue dot on My Day. Pretty soon, you have a healthy-eating streak going!
