Tags: points


What is everyone doing for Thanksgiving? we're doing two dinners, one at my parents and one at my in-laws and I'm torn about counting. I don't want to count points those two days, but I'm scared if I don't I'll eat all day just b/c I'm not counting. But if I count I'll spend half the day trying to figure out how many calories are in the gravy and did I eat a 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes or 2/3.

Need help from the UK

I'm in need of some help from WW users from the UK. I'm going to go to London for a few days next week, and from earlier visits I know that I tend to live of M&S food most of the time when I'm there. But I have honestly no idea how many points for example their salads, sandwiches etc have. Is there a list available anywhere on which I can find either the points for their food to go or the nutrition facts (so that I could do the calculations at home before leaving)?
Thanks in advance for your help.

A couple of questions regarding points for vegetables

1. Sometimes a different value is given for cooked vs. raw vegetables. Is this due to the fact that some vegetables shrink while cooking, or does cooking them increase their inherent point value? It can be a bit confusing when I measure things such as onions raw, and then cook them, as cooked onions have a higher point value than raw.

2. I know that if you eat several servings of a zero point vegetable, you have to count points. Does this also apply to combinations of vegetables? For example, if I had 2 cups of vegetables, consisting of, say, carrots, broccoli, green beans, and cauliflower, would the points accumulate, or would it be 0 points for those 2 cups?

e-tools question

I use e-tools to track my points, and I have a question...

When I first started WW, 17 lbs ago, I was eating 34 points a day.  I know that for every 10 lbs lost you go down a point, but e-tools has not shown this.  I have lost 17 lbs and e-tools still has me as eating 34 points a day.  What gives?  I expected that once I got into the 260s I would go down to 33 points, and now I am very close to the 250s but I am still at 34 points per day.
I haven't been losing (and have actually been gaining) lately despite being on plan - is this the reason why?  Should I really be eating 33 or 32 points instead?
This week I tried eating 33 points per day - weigh-in is tonight so I guess I'll see how that worked out for me.

ETA: Figured it out!  I found a place on the website where I could adjust my points target.  For future reference, though... does e-tools usually adjust points for you automatically or do you always have to go in and adjust it yourself?

Climbing Mountains

Today there's a picnic at work and I think it's beneficial for me to attend since it's with our customers.  They are having Pork & Chicken BBQ, baked beans, coleslaw, potato salad, and cookies.

I can't for the life of me figure out how many points that a chicken BBQ sandwich would be. What would be my best choice as a side?  A little bit of baked beans and a dab of cole slaw?  I'm trying to hold onto the my flex & APs for the week since I'm going on vacation starting Saturday and my points reset on Tuesdays.

I just want to make sure I have this right...

Boneless chicken breast is 1 point per ounce? I vaguely remember a leader telling us this.

My mom and I were talking and while she was recording what she ate and she gave herself five points for her chicken.... I told her that couldn't be right because of what I thought. And she certainly didn't have five ounces. I know how it's cooked also takes into account, but I just want to make sure what I thought is true.

hey all! 

I need Sushi 101! I am a recent "n00b" to Sushi. I'm not a huge seafood eater but I went to RA w/ some friends a few weeks ago and tried a little of my friend's California Roll and LOVED it!!!!

I am going back to RA tomorrow & have no idea what sushi is "better" ww point-wise. I KNOW that tempura is "bad" so I will avoid this.

Also, how does one judge points on sushi?! I know I am for sure getting california rolls(I think you get 2 rolls in a serving?) how do I know points?!
