Calorie Counting

Postby tabbycat » Tue May 02, 2006 10:31 pm

HI all,
Just a quick question.

when you count points for WW - what does 1 point = in calories. (for example does 1 point = 100 calories)
If that is the case then being 94kg and having 20 points means 2000 calories a day.

I hope this all makes sense. If someone could let me know that would be great.

Hi LadyBug, From what I remember from when I use to go to WW, they said that they didn't want people to do calorie counting anymore so they invented the simple points plan and now the core plan. 1 point is slightly less than 100 calories.

I've just found my old WW book and it says that women weighing 80 to 94kgs should eat 22 points of food.
Because I suffer a thyroid gland problem, I had to eat 18 points of food to lose weight.

Dolly's advice is spot on. WW wants you to convert everything into points, perhaps they think its easier to count points than kilojoules???

Week 1 book had a list in the back of the most common foods we eat and their points value, I stuck to this and slowly added things when I found the point value and if I had a favourite food I just asked my leader the point value.

Sorry I can't be more helpful,
