I have the calculator and I'm going to have 23 points a day ( have googled that far? But I can't remember if there are any free foods? I'm not going To worry about the extra 49 as I know that but will keep For Blow out ... I'm a gold Member form years ago but another baby later I joined and didn't get anywhere so I'm loathed to actually pay again but thought of try at home.. Thanks in advance .
Are you doing old points or propoints? 26 is the absolute minimum for propoints. I upped mine to 29 and eat all my 49 extras and still lose weight. All fresh fruit (not juices) and all veg except potatoes, sweet potatoes, sweetcorn and peas are free.
Pro points I think. I have a little red calculator that works out the values in good depending on fibre , carbs etc... Website says eat 23. How long have you been doing it / losing weight ? Do gig have much to Lose .. This is where I struggle with diets because I do it to the letter and don't Lose .. Gives me the hump.
It works out at roughly 1PP per 40kcals, but more if the item is particularly high in fat e.g cheese or chocolate. Also, half points no longer exist so you have to round up. One old point is worth roughly 2 propoints.
