Just a question about pointing foods

#1
Hiya anybody doing weight watchers

Im a little bit confused about the foods in the shopping guide it says For instance Bread white wholemeal or brown 1 med slice 35g = 1 point so does this mean you have to weight the bread what you get till it weighs 35 grams.
And same as

Beef rump steak uncooked 1 medium 225g = 5 points have you to weigh this till it weighs this
And Gammon steak uncooked 1 med 170g =6 points
If you have to weigh things like this it will be boring for me

Hope someone can help

weighing food is the worst thing about w.w but i recommed that u do -
slice of bread - well u got nvs on the back so u can work it out yourself with out weighing most bread is - ranges from 0.5pts per slice or two for 1.5pts

or 1.5pts and two for 2.5pts

but the meat i would sure say weigh it first before eating else your just go over your points!

if its says 165g yeah just weigh it till it says that much xx hope this helps!

I dont weigh my bread I just take one slice to be one point.

As far as steak etc goes, I normally weigh the portion I have then work out the points.

If its something like mince I weigh it til I get to the amount specified in the points.

I think if you want any diet to succeed, be it CD, WW SW or whatever you have to expect some element of work or sacrifices. If weighing a few things is all it takes to make WW work then its well worth it.

It depends how much you want the weight loss

Thanks everyone

Starlight so if you was having say some mince and you bought a pack and it weighed 400g and there was 2 sharing you would just halve it and point it out is that right.
Or same as if you was having a piece of Steak and it was 300g you would just calculate the points for that amount
It says in the shopping guide wafer thin chickenmed portion 30g so that means you weigh this out and that is only 1/2 point.

Same as you say there is always a sacriffice with all of them but it is the after results you want.
I think i will be better when i have finally joined ww meeting then i will know how to go on.

Thanks for your help

sorry to butt in --

i would say go carefull and weigh it as sometimes it not right -
i brought meat the other day (chicken) and it said 45g but in fact it was 55g - so i had to have add 0.5pts!

Thanks starlight

You have been a great help How many points are you roughly allowed for your breakfast and lunch as i think i will be on 27.
What happens if you go over your points say 3 or 4 would it stop your weightloss for the week.
Do you still keep a check of what you are eating.
How is your new scales going are they better than the original ones like i had

Kind Regards
Sorry for asking these questions

Im on a similar number of points to you Bethany. I usually have about 3 for breakfast, Im not a morning person lol Maybe about 4/6 for lunch, about 10 for dinner and the rest goes on snacks etc but thats just how I work it, how you split your points up is totally your decision, just dont go over your daily allowance

I never go over my points. I try and keep a small 'bank' of points and even on my treat night I work it round my points.

I love my new scales, tho theyre probably prettymuch like yours, they make things SO easy
