How many points per day


Gold Member
Can someone confirm for me the points allowed per day.

When I did WW before, if you were female and over 20 stones you were allowed 30 points per day. I recently heard though that you now get points based on your sex, age and weight, is that true? There is a difference in the points Id be allowed on each method, I dont want to start off eating more points than I should??

Ok, I've just dug out my ww books, so if you tell me the answer to these questions then I'll let you know how many points you should be having (these are the questions it asks in the book to work out your points, it's not just me being nosey, honest, lol)...

Male or female?
Weight (in stones)?
In your main occupation are you...sitting down mostly, occasionally sitting but mostly standing, walking mostly or doing physically hard work most of the time?
