So I just started using this site today. My hope was that I could log what I eat each day and the site would also track weight watchers points for me. I don't see a place for the points though and maybe I am doing something wrong? If I can't do that here, maybe I should just track calories....any thoughts?

well depending on your fat and fiber calories vary. just keep your tracker close by and keep tabs on pts.

What Weight Watcher program are you using? Momentum or PointsPlus? If you use google chrome browser or firefox there is a script you can install that will allow you to see your points next to the foods you eat in your diary.

Thanks for the replies. I use IE version 8. Would love to be able to use that script but doesn't sounds like I can...oh well. I will keep track manually.

You need to use either Google Chrome or Firefox. Unfortunately, I don't think it works with internet explorer. I recommend Google Chrome because installation is easier.

For google Chrome go to this website: http://userscripts.org/scripts/versions/75800

If you are using Momentum Points use the version dated: May 13, 2010

If you are using PointsPlus use the version dated: Jan 6, 2011

I am following the WW pointsplus, i use this site to track my food and nutrition, than use the information to calculate my points. So far it is working out great. I do not have WW online so this is a free and quick alternative. The FS app use to track WW points however about a year ago when i updated my app it said WW points had been removed due to legal issues.

No problem. Also if you are a smartphone user, WWDiary is a great App found in the google markert. You can modify it's settings to do either the old points or pointsplus.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
