    How many points are in eggs?
    Please say it's not many :p

    And is there a weekly limit on them?

    Thanks x

    be VERY careful with eggs!! make sure and check the points on every brand u buy bcause i bought med ones in tescos and they were 2points per egg...now i no its not a big thing but if ya can find the ones for 1.5 why not get them ones and then also ur not actually going over ur points by an extra hidden half point!!

    I don't get it - how can the same size eggs be different points depending on what brand of box it's put in?!!!

    you can bulk out things like scrambled egg or omlettes by using extra egg white as they are no points. I often use one complete egg, plus one egg white.

    It might be the size, although you'd think one person's medium egg would be the same as another's - I dunno.

    I love eggs, I'm so glad they're a core food - means I can buy the really big ones. Yum :)

    Sorry - something up with my computer!!!

    I was going to say:

    I can understand it on things like waffles as they're actually manufactured, so the ingredients may vary between brands - but it's like saying that 100g of chicken breast from tesco is different to 100g of chicken breast from Waitrose!!!

    it depends on the weight of the egg!! have u got the cals and sat fat off the box? thats the only true way of knowing which points to use!!

    ud never think that there can be confusion with eggs but as ya can see u really need to keep a check on the points in diff brands!!
    say ull be grand though spec if ya have activity points etc!!
