Default Points Calculator

Most everything we eat is homemade so I need guidance in calculating points. I had a thing from WW that I got years ago but cannot find it. Can anybody give me a heads up on calculating points (I know you use calories, fat, and fiber to figure it out) Thanks in advance!

Points are done differently now and based upon fat, carbs, protein, and fiber. However, we are not allowed to post the formula here.

I don't know if you can buy a points calculator by itself at a meeting. If you have access to the website you can calculate them on the site. There is a recipe builder function, where you basically add up the points of all the ingredients, then divide by the portions. Quite handy .

Yes, you can buy them at meetings. I think the price is ridiculously expensive. Even if you don't do the monthly plan, you can still download an app for free. It won't do the tracking and the full deal the website does, but there is a scanner/calculator you can get free.

Default WW Points

I'm new here so forgive me if this question has already been posted. Do you all think the old WW points plan is better than the new points plus.

Everything has changed. You will need to either join online or go to a meeting.

blessedfly I still do the old plan simply because I am use to it and it works for me. I am just to lazy to recalculate all the foods I eat. Both plans work and it really is what you are most comfortable with imo

There are also smart phone apps that can be had for free or a nominal fee.

So I was playing around with the points calculator and according to it my corona light is one point. I just don't get it. How come it doesn't take calories into consideration?

There are exceptions for alcohol and sugar alcohols, and beer is generally 5 points, period. It may be 4 for you with a light beer, but check in with a leader. I was told all alcohol, 5 points, (a beer, a glass of wine or a shot)
