    I'm struggling with pp's calculations when something is 1pp but if u have 2 lots of the item it's 3pps. Eg ww bread 1 slice = 1 pp but 2 slices = 3pps. What if I have a slice of bread in the morn which is 1pp then 1 in the afternoon which 1pp. Does that = 2 or 3?!!

    Please help me!!

    Personally I point it all within a 24 hour period so would point one in the morning, then one in the evening as 3pp.

    I read something about this yesterday - basically, 1 slice could be 1.4pp but it gets rounded down, but if it was 1.5pp it would get rounded up. Therefore, 2 slices would be 2.8, which = 3pp. Annoying though!

    Agreed. Or find a loaf that is lower :p

    You only end up cheating yourself if you don't count it properly

    On the online tracker, if you have two slices in the same meal it will round it up (ie 3pps if you have two for breakfast). It won't if you have them at separate meals (ie 1pp for one at breakfast and 1pp for one at dinner).

    It's because there are no HALF points like the old programme so we're rounding UP i'm afraid... :(

    pudnpie isn't right. We have been talking about this at class for a few weeks now.

    Thanx for all the replies.

    Bottom line is ..... Warburtons crumpets r only worth the points if u have 1. Gutted. Also wondering wot else I've been calculating inaccurately. Should I calculate everything rather than just doubling it if I have twice as much? Or is it mainly processed food?

    it is 3 pp bcoz they make it like that incase 1 slice is thicker than the other so the extra point makes up 4 it

    I'm not saying what is wrong or right. I'm just saying what happens when you put it in the tracker and what I said IS what happens! :)
