    Right so I was looking through my shiney new shopping book and under pineapple it says 80g pineapple 0pp, so does it mean if I have more than the 80g in a day I need to start pointing it?

    They give a typical portion size for everything to keep it uniform. As far as I'm aware fresh pineapple, or drained if from tin is free.

    good question???

    I thought fruit was also free but when I bought a packet of mixed fresh fruit, I worked it out from the ingredients and it said it was 1 point for 100G there was 240g in the packet so I had to use 2 points grrr!!!

    Hope someone can shed some light on this one as I am struggling at the mo with this plan. How are you doing? ( i am on the pp points WW) Whats the Discovery plan?

    Fruit does have sugar and carbs, if you put the values in your calculator it will come out with points. But as long as it's fresh fruit and not in any juices it IS zero points. Your daily allowance takes account of the values of fresh fruit. All fresh fruit not in juices is zero PP

    It is not however "free"- big distinction between 0pp and free. What that means is you can't just eat unlimited amounts. Eat sensible amounts, and until you are full.

    Hope that clears it up a bit.

    Yep as long as its not dried, in juice, or in syrup, its 0pp. as ~crooked smile~ mentioned you do have to hold onto a bit of common sense x

    why is it pp if the fruit is in juice? I put into esource and it came out at 0pp. I did have a small tin of peaches in its own juice with a yogurt for breakfast, starting to get worried???

    I asked my ww leader yesterday and she said fruit in tinned juice is definately still 0pp if you drain the juice. Fruit in syrup is pointed if you drain the syrup because the fruit will have absorbed syrup.
    Hppe that helps :) x

    I'm new to it too but my leader said you had to be sensible about the fruit because of the sugar so some is 0 but for a lot you should probably point it a little bit.
