Hi Jaydee, when I use to belong to Weight Watchers they supplied each person with a weekly booklet with recipes and the listed point value next to them.
I quit WW because they told me to eat 22 points of food and it made me gain weight (but that was only because of a medical gland problem I have) The point system does work well for so many people whether they are weight watcher members or not.

The booklet I have states
Women
under 64kg - eat 18 points of food per day
65 - 79kg - 20 points
80 - 94kg 22
95 - 100kg - 23
110 - 124kg 24
125 - 139kg 25
140 and over 26

In America WW issues their members with many more points of food than we are allowed.
I had a friend who was a little over my weight and after converting everything to metric I was shocked to find she was eating 28 points of food :shock: (she wondered why the diet wasn't working for her) but she wouldn't lessen her allocated points.


Some basic daily foods and their points.
Alcohol - a shot of sherry or a stubby of beer 5 points
Poached Fish 3
Chicken breast 3
Whopper with Bacon 15
145ml tub of sweet celebrations ice-cream 1
Yoplus light 200g 2
2 cups of rice or spaghetti 5
Prawns 300g 3
Chocolate 6 squares 3½
A yoghurt ice-cream 2
Tim Tam 2
Tin of pumpkin soup 2
1 lebanese bread 100g 4
1 slice white bread 1
Milk (tone) 1 cup 1
Air popped popcorn 4 cups 2
Crumpet 50g 1
Whopper Junior (no mayonnaise) 8
15 Licorice Bullets 5
Cheddar cheese 30g 2
2 Vita Brits 1½
Baked beans mini tin 130g 1½
1 egg 1

If you have any other foods that you frequent or are just curious about how many points they are worth, just let me know what they are and I'll add them to the above list.
