I cannot afford to join weight watcher's so I am using this site. How do I figure out how many points I can have? Is it a daily point system or weekly? Now that I am armed with the weight watcher's cookbook and know I can eat lean cuisines, I am ready to go but I suppose it would be senseless if I don't know how many points I can have.

Your number of daily points depends on your weight. From 150-160# you get 22 points, and below 150# you get 20. Don't know about weights over 160#. Each week you get 35 extra points to use as you choose. So, if you want to spread them evenly over the week, and your beginning points are 20/day, you can have 25/day. Or if you want to be "good" all week and then use all 35 points at the KFC buffet, that's an option. Just be careful in that arena, b/c at some of the buffets you can go up to nearly 100 points before you know it! Over 150# you can add points to your daily number by exercising, don't remember how many. Just one or two.

I think (not sure) if you weigh from 175 to 200lbs, you can have 24 points a day. Someone correct me if I'm wrong! Here's a website that I just love that will tell you point values to just about everything: http://www.dwlz.com/

Hope this helps....best wishes to youWink

Don't know if the WW in the UK is different & I haven't attended for a few years so it may have changed, but according to the lit. I have 15-17stone - 24pts, 13-15stone 22 points, 11-13 stone - 20pts, 9-11 stone - 18pts. It's on average 4 points more than this for guys. I have never heard of the 35 points extra to spread over the week - you can however carry over points from one day to the next, or save them up for the weekend. Very Happy

Phil is right. Learn to make better choices. Count your calories. Eat healthy and exercise.
