As you’ll see in all of the low calorie recipes that I post, there is a “Point Total” given for each serving. And many of you have asked how to calculate your individual daily WW Points, in order to know the total number of points you are allowed to eat in a day. While I cannot tell you how to determine your Weight Watchers Points Target, as I am not affiliated with Weight Watchers, I can share with you the way to calculate your allotted daily point total for LaaLoosh Recipes. :) Simply answer the questions, and add up your score!
How to Calculate Your Daily Point Total
Female- score 2
Male- score 8
A nursing mom- score 12
2. What is your age?
17-26- score 4
27-37- score 3
38-47- score 2
48-58- score 1
over 58- score 0
3. How much do you weigh?
Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds.
(for example, if you weight 199, you will add 19 to your score)
4. What is your height?
Under 5’1- score 0
5’1-5’10- score 1
Over 5’10- score 2
5. Do you spend the majority of your day…
Sitting down? score 0
Occasionally sitting? score 2
Walking most of the time? score 4
Doing physically hard work most of the time? score 6
Just total up your score, and that will give your daily point total target!
Additionally, you get an extra 35 flexible points per week, to use if you’d like. These are like Bonus Points to use for a special event or if you just happen to have a day where you go over your daily point total allowance. You do not have to use these additional 35 points, and if you don’t, they DO NOT carry over into the next week. So once they’re gone, they’re gone, people!
