    Calorie counting
    When the ProPoints were introduced, the points value of a lot of their branded foods was recalculated, which is obviously as it should be. What is slightly irritating to me as a calorie counter using their foods is that they appear to have reformulated some things to be nearer to their higher value.

    For example, the tortilla chips I like went up from 1 point to 2, but they reduced the protein, increased the carbs, and increased the fat - which has increased the calories - I suppose in order to "fill out" the 2 points more closely! I know 5 calories isn't huge but it seems to rather defeat the object, when the food was fine just as it was.
