How to calculate Weight Watchers points for a recipe

Advertisement

In order to calculate the Weight Watchers points that a recipe has, you need to know the number of calories, the amount of fat and the amount of fiber that recipe has.

The formula for calculating Weight Watchers points is:

Points = (Calories/50) + (Fat Grams/12) – (Fiber Grams/5)

So let’s say we have a recipe that has 258 calories, 6.3 grams of fat and 2.7 grams of fiber per portion.

points = (258/50) + (6.3/12) – (2.7/5)
points = 5.6 + 0.525 – 0.54
points = 5.585

Our recipe would have 5.5 points per serving. See? It wasn’t that hard!

Now you can either calculate points for your own recipes, or use some delicious recipes from my blog – they have points already calculated for you! :)

Bon appetit!

Update: In order to make calculating points easier, I’ve included a points calculator on the sidebar. Just insert the values for the calories, fat and fiber grams and press “Calculate” – you’ll instantly get the points value for that particular recipe!
