    I hope this is allowed, please slap my wrist very hard if its not!!

    My calculator gave up the ghost a long time ago and points slider has gone missing! Im trying to do without WW meetings for now, and remember this formula from last time I WW'd!

    For a rough pointage (handy to work out when in supermarket)

    Divide the calories (kcal) by 70
    Divide the saturated fat by 4
    Add these two together for points amount.

    when I did have my calculator I compared lots of values with this sum and Calculator and the values usually matched.
    Hope this helps someone x
