    Hey all

    A question about bread.....can anybody please tell me if Nimble Malted Wholegrain is 0.5 per slice like the WW one? I have just eaten 3 slices thinking it was 0.5 and then I worked it out on the online points calc from the sticky threads and it has come up at 0.8....but I am wondering if this is just that thing about it being slightly over half but still counted as half if you get me?
    thanks

    The online calculator isnt always the best for accuracy, I think it has a tendancy to over calculate.

    Have you checked on your own calculator or post the cals etc here

    I used the online calculator the other day and it was WAY out compared to my ww calculator...just a warning :)

    As for the bread - this has come up before and we all seemed to do it differently. I personally work out the points for the serving of bread I'm actually having (so for the about, 2 slices would work out at 1.5 points, so that's what I count it at), other people work out the points pers slice and just times that by however many slices they're having. I'm not sure there's a right or wrong way, but I remember our ww leader warning us about it when I went to meetings, so I always work it out per 2 slices if that's what I'm having. My ww calculator doesn't give me the exact points value (so 0.775 wouldn't come up on mine, it would just round that off to 1 point). I just take everything to be as my ww calculator tells me, lol.
