    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 :)

    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 :(
