Sometimes it's the same points or zero it's strange
The best that I can tell is 1 point is 40 calories. Some of the issues with not being able to just double the points for two servings is a rounding issue. If you have an item that's 55 calories is actually 1.38 points (based upon my estimate of 40cal/point). They don't do partial points so it's rounded down to 1 point. Now, if you have two servings it becomes 2.76 points which is rounded up to 3. If an item is below 20 calories it is less than half a point which is rounded down to zero.
I could be off base with this but every time I compare my calorie counts for individual food items on SparkPeople to points on Weight Watchers this algorithm has held true.
