    is there any points value you can give me to pointing potatos?
    ie does 100g of potato equal 1pt for example?
    Im thinking of getting a big spud (reckon about 400g) and cutting it into fat skin-on chips and cooking it with fry light in the oven.

    thanks guys

    Hi Ponseta,

    I think 400g worth of potato would be 5.5 points. Its about 1.5 points per 100g.

    This is my own calculation using nutritional facts from the internet and my formula

    According to my (french) WW cookery book,
    for 4 people
    3 points per serving
    800g potatoes
    1 soup spoon sunflower oil
    1 coffee spoon paprika
    salt.
    Cut potatoes into 1 cm chips.Mix with oil and paprika and cook in hot oven for 20 mins. YUM!
