    I'm a new user & used the Discover plan for over a year. I've been dipping in & out for the past while but can't seem to shift the last few pounds. I wonder can anyone tell me how to calculate the propoints based on the food values on packets, boxes etc. I know its not just on calorie & fat content anymore. Thanks.

    There's an app on the iphone, but I think you need to be a paying member, if not, I have seen pro points calculators on sale on Ebay, sure its just as easy and a phone app.

    Other ppl have suggested as a rule of thumb 40 cals per point, but that doesn't always work if your eating something like tinned tomatoes, are they are free.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help!

    It is based on carb's, full eat, protein and fibre. If you do A Google search you can find the equation but it would be easier to buy the calculator or get an app if you have a smart phone or iphone.

    I have an iPhone with a couple of great apps to help me with ww.
