Weight Watchers Points – Points Plus and Pro Points
- PointsPlus and Pro Plus are two systems developed by Weight Watchers. The PointPlus system is used in U.S. and the Pro Points system is adopted the U.K. In this Weight Watchers Points Calculator, both these system are presented with latest adjustments which took place in 2012.
The new systems use protein, carbohydrate, fat, and fiber as food components to calculate Weight Watcher points. Previously, only calorie, fat, and fiber were used to calculate points.
- In this Weight Watchers Points Calculator, you can estimate the daily PointsPlus target using the Daily PointsPlus option. Though it was designed to estimate daily PointsPlus target, Pro Points target can also be estimated using this option as there is no significant variation between these two systems.
Input your age, gender, weight, height, and level of activity to determine your daily target to be monitored using this Weight Watchers Points Calculator.
