How to Calculate Weight Watchers Points For The Points Plus Plan

Locate the nutritional information for the food you want to calculate the points for. It is usually located on the back of the product's box. If you are eating a fresh fruit or vegetable, good news, most fruits and vegetables have zero points on the new Points Plus plan. Starchy vegetables, like potatoes, come with point values that will still need to be calculated.

Find the nutritional information for unprocessed food, for example, potatoes, at a nutritional website, like Nutrition Data. You can also locate nutritional information for most restaurants and processed foods at the companies' websites.

Calculate the points by using this mathematical formula:

Points Plus = protein/10.94 + carbohydrates/9.17 + fat/3.89 - fiber/12.49.

You will take the grams of protein in your food listed on the nutritional label and divide it by 10.94 on your calculator. To that you will add the grams of carbohydrates divided by 9.17, add fat grams divided by 3.89, then subtract fiber divided by 12.49.
