Wafer beef/ham/turkey and chicken 1 slice 13g (cooked sandwich meat) ZERO! it's only if you have more than 1 as when it's pointed according to the wwonline source

also Asda Chorizo 1 slice 4g = ZERO

suppose it's only when you put more than one slice on low cal/fat or whatever things is when it moves to the 1pp mark :)

Sorry folks.

Full size crunchie is 5 pp. I went and bought a pack of 6 on the back of this thread, but when I calculated it on the calculator, it came up as 5pp. I then looked in the shopping guide and that says 5. Snack size is 3. Treat size is 2.

Oh well, as someone said, too good to be true!!!

I cant believe that a burgerking bunburger is only 5, but an egg mayo sambo is 7 - some things just dont compute! (saw that while cruising!!!).
That burger may be wrong. The other day I saw the McDonald's Bacon Cheese Burger listed as 4 PP!! But then when you looked at the nutritional info they had on it the values for protein and carbs were both 0 so obviously very wrong.

it's the same with some chocolate bars also, i worked out the propoints using the nutritional values from the official site for cadburys/mars/nestle and then i checked what the ww esource had already pre entered into the site, and both came up with different answers, i've got my cousin to get me a calculator from her meeting now, as feel that's the only way to be certain of the proper values for things, i won't be starting the plan until January time but as it's 20% off atm might as well get it whilst it's cheap! so will be working out points for everything and making my own book, it's a bit silly though thought with it being a new plan everything would be ironed out properly so to speak! it may be just 1pp difference in things with chocolate bars / crisps etc but i feel on the new plan 1pp is actually a lot of difference! lol :)

Its turning up some surprises isn't it? I went to group last night but am going to nip into another tonight just to buy a calculator as it all seems a bit hit n miss on esource at the moment.

I think the artic roll is one we can trust - the Discover points were shockingly low too for it!

But yes, better to recalculate the lot...... I shan't be buying the "Shop" guide either I don't think!

Beef in general seems very high in points to me. Extra Lean Mince is 6 points per 125g raw and a Rump Steak is 10 points for 255g, which isn't that big.
actually yesterday I bought 2 rump steaks fillets roughly 225 grams and I had to split one in half with my fiancé (the second one is in the freezer split in half too...) because they were massive! We had half of it, 6 pp for him and 5pp for me (his half was a bit bigger), I did some roasted potatoes for him and I had some veggies with 1 tsp of oil, and a dessert, and we were nice and full in the end of it. Even he was, and he's a man :)

I was shocked that 1 slice of WW cheddar cheese was 1pp! It's really great because cheese hasn't increased in value too much (because of its protein content) and I LOVE cheese!

Also, 25g of mixed nuts are only 3pp. They were 2 old points, so they haven't increased much, and they're another kind of food I absolutely LOVE :):rolleyes:
