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. The old system was based on a calculation based on calories, fat, and fiber content. The new system is based on protein, carbohydrates, fat and fiber. At the end of 2012, the PointsPlus and Pro Points systems were adjusted slightly.
