Just had to grab a quick bite at work and haven't got a clue about Points for this (am newly doing WW) and don't have book here. Is it grilled? It didn't seem greasy.... Help!

not many points if it wasn;t fried which i doubt, how big?

dinny Thu 01-Jun-06 21:41:40

oh, not big - half a palm-ish...

would I be able to tell if it were fried? it was crispy on outside ....

If it was crispy then the chances are that it was deep fried. I have an eating out guide for WW here, will look in a mo

oh, flipping heck - that's probably a zillion points then.

Well, in the Harvester they do a Cajun Chicken Big One for 15.5 pts.

Brewers Fayre cajun chicken is 10.5 pts.

Little Chef is 8.5 pts.

If it were me I'd go somewhere in the middle of those 3!! Remember to count the points for your spuds/chips/rice/bread, whatever you had with it

argh! how annoying. may nip down and ask if it's fried!

just had salad with it, so that's something.

thanks for looking it up for me!

And, Themammy, what do you do if you go over points in WW - make them back over the next couple of days?

TheMammy Thu 01-Jun-06 22:58:02

Yep.. how many are you aloowed in a day? I am allowed 20. So yesterday and today I have ate 14 as I know I have a friend coming at the weekend and I will consume large quantities of Rose wine You can make it up in the next few days, eg: IF you have eaten 6 points over you daily total ie: 26, then eat 18 points for the next 3 days and it should work out ok. It's awful when you have to count every wee morsel that goes in your mouth isn't it!

How are you getting on so far?
