    Hi

    1st week on WW and I'm stuck already!! The book says 100g serving of potatoes is 1 point but is this the raw weight or the cooked weight?

    Can anyone help?

    The book is for the potato raw, 100g of any type of potato you do, whether it be jacket, new, boiled etc is 1 point raw, only difference is mashed and roasted i believe!
