I would imagine its because because 1 egg is only 65 calories whereas 1 small portion of salmon (120g) is 235 calories. 200g new potatoes is 150, whereas 200g oven chips is around 300 calories. So if you are calorie counting the salmon is around 150 more than the egg, and the chips around 150 more than the potatoes.

But I have never done weightwatchers....

I used to do ww, but hated all the feckin counting!

Am now a fully fleged slimming world convert grin
