    If you're a Weight Watchers member there's a part of the eSource (the WW online) that is called recipe builder. Basically you put in all the raw ingredients of your recipe, split it by how many portions you got out of it and it will tell you the PP per portion.

    I never eat ready made meals - BF hates them. So virtually every night we put what we've made into the recipe planner and it tells us how many points are in it. :)

    WW are identical to SW in that their programmed actively encourages cooking from scratch and not relying on processed food. HOWEVER the option is there if you want it

    Contrary to what people think WW do not, encourage you to have nothing but ready meals.

    Well no. Thats why we do it before we cook it and play about and take things away if its too high. ;)

    Plus when you've been on WW for a while you know how many points things are and can estimate how much is in a meal.

    But youd never do it that way... youd work the points out before you eat them :confused:
