As I mentioned before I am a bit of a loser and have made up a spreadsheet that calculates my points if I know the cals and sat fat.

I am using this formula (kcals/66)+(sat fat/4.12) to get the points. Anyone know any different?

I use cals divided by 70, sat fat divided by 4, then add the two together, just a basic version of yours

I think they work out much the same, except with Frazzles

The formula they use is on Wikipedia (make sure you look at the UK one). Seems pretty complicated though!

The wiki site is the one I was using p=(e/66)=(f/4.12) where p=points, e=kcals and f=sat fat. Now I sound like a maths teacher

Well thats ok then, just dont go working things like that out in your own time. In company time - more than acceptable
