    Hi, welcome to ww for a week! Yes you're right 40 cals is roughly 1pp, it usually works out accurate within a point or 2.

    Hiya, yes 40 kcals is ROUGHLY 1pp, but you shouldn't be using it as an iron clad rule - its just for estimation purposes!

    If you are just going by calories you may as well be doing a calorie counting diet!

    All the info you need will be in your pack, as the exact calculations are in there. :)

    Good stuff. You can get some tesco lighter options stuff as well (just check its got propoints on the box as opposed to points - some of the old stock is still in shops!)

    I just wanted to make sure you were just gonna base it on that because that isn't exact for everything - quite a few of the lower pointed things (like 2/3) end up being a point higher! Its just good for guesstimating in the shops rather than having to grab your calculator or that stupid wheel thing in the ww folder :p

    If you need help pointing foods theres a subforum thingy to post in :)
