Most of you weight watching folks know that Weight Watchers has changed their plan to PointsPlus.
This blog has several hundred recipes with the old points values attached. This makes it difficult to go back and recalculate the points to PointsPlus. However, since I’ve provided nutrition information, you will be able to convert the points yourself.
In the future, I will calculate old points for those of you who want to stick with the old plan, and new PointsPlus points for those of you making the change. Of course, I will always provide calorie, fat, fiber, sodium etc. for people working the calorie approach to weight loss and maintenance. I have purchased the new calculator for PointsPlus and I’m still learning, so if you find a discrepancy in points, please let me know!
My personal opinion is that Weight Watchers has made a change for the better, and is calculating the value of foods as a whole. This makes your food choices more nutritionally sound.
