Many readers have asked me how to calculate your daily weight watchers points plus allowance. With the big change of the new Points Plus Plan, they’ve made it pretty hard to determine that without becoming a paying WW member and having the leaders calculate it for you in their system. However, there are a couple of other ways too….
Option #1: Get your hands on a WW Digital Points Calculator
You can buy one at a local WW meeting or online. It allows you to enter your personal stats (gender, age, weight and height) and get your daily points plus allowance.
Option #2: Check out this page that was created by an AWESOME WW member
http://gnomes22.tripod.com/dailypptarget.html — I’ve compared it to my official Weight Watchers calculator and it is correct. Just plug in your stats, and it will give you your daily points plus allowance.
Now, if you are still following the old Weight Watchers Points Plan, you can figure out how many points you are allowed each day answer these questions and add your score:
Female- score 2
Male- score 8
A nursing mom- score 12
2. How old are you?
17-26- score 4
27-37- score 3
38-47- score 2
48-58- score 1
over 58- score 0
3. What do you weigh?
Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds.
(for example, if you weight 198, you will add 19 to your score)
4. How tall are you?
Under 5’1- score 0
5’1-5’10- score 1
Over 5’10- score 2
5. How do you spend most 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 add all of your scores together and that’s your daily points allowance.
Additionally, you are allowed an 35 more “fun” points per week, if you wish to use them.
