How do Weight Watchers points work?


Answer by  Pineapple7 (260)

Weight Watchers points work according to an individual's weight, height and active status. A person is assigned a specific point value (i.e. 26), and each food, depending upon their calorie, fiber, and fat count, is also assigned a point value. As long as a person stays within or under their point range, they will likely lose weight.

weight watchers just tries to simplify calorie counting... i think they basically take 50 calories and convert that to one weight watchers points. so 150 calories = 3 points. they round up or down as necessary.

For me, not good. Because I am always checking the lists how many points has this and how many points has that. It is going on my nerves. So I will stop with Weight Watchers in the next week or so.

losing or maintaining your weight takes a little bit of vigilance. counting calories really doesn't take that much energy, and after you know the number of calories in certain foods, it starts to get really easy.  add a comment
