    point everything is the best way, then u know for sure what you are at, and nothing sneaky gets added, a tin of carrots for example i have are 0.5 points, have them twice a day and theres a point u wouldnt have thought about, so worth sticking to the letter really

    Most veggies are free, but some you need to point. Fruit has to be counted

    If youre going it alone Id definitely recommend getting the Shopping Guide, it lists just about everything you can think of. If you have that a calculator and an Eating Out Guide, its a breeze. Without them you might struggle a bit

    If you have fresh carrots though, theyre free and theres a point you can spend on something else ;)

    The points calculator here isnt the most accurate, its ok in an emergency lol but I really wouldnt rely on it for everything.

    You REALLY do need a proper one, its a godsend at the supermarket lol

    The Eating Out guide on here is pretty accurate so you could miss that but if you dont have any basic books as I said Id really get the Shopping Guide. Other wise a lot of your pointing is going to be guess work which can be disasterous

    I kinda feel that way about classes too. I havent gone to one at all this time I think so long as you have the motivation youll manage, if you have the right tools

    Weight Watchers sell the stuff online too, that might work out cheaper if youre buying a few things
