    What I have read on mini's people seem to think calorie counting works better, but I suppose it really is down the individual and what works for you.

    I think thats a bit of a generalisation! Im sure people who are CC will say it works better but I dont think anyone on WW will agree. There are a lot more Miniminers on WW than are CC. It depends purely on which diet youre following but I think to generalise is a bit unfair

    Converting cals to points isnt an exact science there are things you need to factor in, sat fat etc its not a clear cut case of X cals = X points.

    If youre cc the best thing to do is just calorie count forget points and if youre doing WW then focus on points and not calories :)

    yep I agree, if your WW forget about calories and if your CC forget about points only think calories :)
