    i spotted a tin of pineapple in juice in my cupboard and thought, yum. so i pointed it using the 1/3 can values, 3 points. fab. then did it by the 100g, four points... hmm...

    i have counted it as four, but does this sort of thing happen a lot?

    I always use the 100g values and from it I will calculate my points. I never use at serving values and half a pack values as I found it confusing. To avoid confusion I stick to scale, calculator and 100g values:)

    its just the way things are - for example, 1 slice of ww bread is 0.5 but 2 is 1.5.. thats because 2 slices of bread obviously crosses the weight allowance for 1 point, but one slice isnt enough to make 1 point.. if that makes sense. Like has been said, its always safer to work from your 100g calculations :) x
