ok - am doing weightwatchers - 9 weeks in and 23.5 lbs off (Have a lot to lose) My mother has just handed me a packet of rapidly defrosting burgers and one of sausages. Some butchers near her is making them and selling them as calculated using Slimming world - the burgers say free per 100g and the sausages say 1-2 syns per 100g. My mum says they are great - she is trying to lose weight without ref to a particular plan, and is doing ok - I have had a week of no loss and don't want to screw up - Anyone know how to turn slimming world lingo into Weightwatchers points? TBH would quite happily sling them in bin but she will want to know what I think of them.

I have found generally that 1 WW point translates to 3 syns approximately. But what I'd do is look up the points value of some of the very low fat sausages eg. walls, morrisons, tescos and see what they come out as then point the same.

I don't know for sure but it's a totally different system so i don't think you can. On SW you have green and red days - which are to do with low carbs I think. So on certain days you can eat stuff you wouldn't dream of having on ww and they are "no sins" because it's a certain coloured day!

If they are sausages from a butcher I would guess them to be around 2.5 points per sausage. Not sure on the burgers as I wouldn't normally touch them on ww!

Red meat is "free" on a SW red day, so it must mean that they are made with lean meat/little or no cereals added.
I would do as Wynken suggests, could you call your WW leader?
