    Hi Im Pasta confuzed :sigh:

    When you get your pasta dry weight its so may points but when thats cooked the weight it is is more points than when it was dry,,,,,,,its thesame amount so :eek:
    So Im worried now as its my 2nd weigh-in tomorrow had pasta 3 times last week so I havent had all my points this week incase,am worried any conclusions.
    Basically dry weight x points that same dry weight cooked is xx points :confused:

    thanx xx

    PS how many points in 150g of cooked pasta in your opinion?xx

    150g dried pasta is 7.5 points cos pasta is 1 point per 20g. I always weigh mine before I cook it otherwise I would cook too much/little.

    I agree..I always weigh and point my pasta when its dry, 20g = 1 point. Otherwise I think it depends on how much you cook it as to how much it weighs afterwards. If you cook it 'al dente' it won't weigh as much as if you cook it til its soggy!! ;)

    100g = 1pt

    Or 250g baked pot 2 1/2 pt (I think because you would leave the skin on:confused:)

    (edit doh but funny so leaving it on 50g would be 1/2pt haha)

    I am still new to all this lol
