Weight Watchers Pro-Points [Nov. 17th, 2010|02:14 pm]
Rebecca Huntley
[music |The XX]

For those of you not up-to-date on all things dieting Pro-Points is the new system from Weight Watchers, instead of being basically just counting calories it now takes into account protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber. As a general rule its more about making healthier choices rather than just sticking within a certain points allowance.

But, that doesn't mean I'm gonna go without my little treats, the biggest one being chocolate. So, for anyone out there googling 'Weight Watchers Pro-Points in chocolate' Here's a few of my favorites -

Curly Wurly - 3 Pro-Points
Flake - 5 Pro-Points
Galaxy - 7 Pro-Points
Wispa - 6 Pro-Points
Creme Egg - 5 Pro-Points
Caramel Fredo - 3 Pro-Points
Time Out - 5 Pro-Points
Dairy Milk caramel - 6 Pro-Points
Kinder Egg - 3 Pro-Points

These are the points for standard size bars, nothing there satisfying your sweet tooth? Let me know and I'll happily point up your favorite sweet treat!

For those of you wanting to know I've lost just over 3.4 stone's now and I'm still losing and hoping to fit in a rather amazing dress for a upcoming wedding!

I thought the old system already penalised you for saturated fat content?

Indeed it did, points were based on saturated fat and calories but nothing else.
The new system is using the all over fat content along with the other nutritional values.

Wow, that's a whole lot of weight loss! Nice one!

I've lost just over a stone so far, but I didn't make my goal for the wedding :( - doesn't matter though, I've got a really good corset.

I can't believe that both Paul and Ruth (fleeblewidget) managed to comment on my own sister's blog entry before me.

Looking forward to seeing this amazing dress!

WW pro points

Thanks a million for the heads up on the choc bars. Sat night I had a packet of rolos and I think they came in at 7 points (am I right?) Anyway,
3.4 stone is an amazing loss and you are doing it the healthy way too. I am eating all around me on this pro points plan so can't get my head around how this is gonna help me loose weight!! It's my first week and weigh in is today (as I munch on a curly wurly) so I wouldn't be surprised if the weighing stales told me to piss off. I am hopeful though so I will let you know....
