    Hi There,
    is it true that if you divide the amount of calories it gives you the pro points?
    Thanks

    Yeah dividing calories by 40 works pretty well for me too, always round up though just in case, and try and check properly if you can. I use it as a simple assessment of whether to buy something or not.

    If its something fatty or carby then up by one after dividing (and after rounding). If its protein-filled then the division should be right after rounding... This is what I've found so far using this technique anyways lol x

    Pardon a dumb question, I hadn't seen that way of 'guesstimating' PP before, do you just divide the cals in the portion by 40 to give the points or is it really that simple? !

    That's exactly it! And round up or down depending on whether remainder is above or below 20. It _usually_ works. Every so often things are 1pp above that estimate (say really carby things or fatty things for instance) but its worked for me almost every time hon! :)
