Weight Watchers Points Calculator
The Weight Watchers Points System is one of the useful tools for those who want to lose or control weight. With this system, foods were assigned points. You count and control the total points of the food you take per day.
In November 2010, Weight Watchers announced that its points system was being replaced by a new PointsPlus system in the United States and a new Pro Points system in the UK. At the end of 2012, the PointsPlus and Pro Points systems were adjusted slightly. In December, 2015, Weight Watchers announced another sweeping change to SmartPoints. The new SmartPoints system is based on the calories, sugar, saturated fat, and protein contained in the food. Fruits and most vegetable are still zero-point foods. The nutrients from fruits and veggies are only factored in if they are mixed with other food.
Effective after December 2015. It is based on calories, sugar, saturated fat, and protein.
