Converting UK into US points

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Does anyone know how to convert the UK points into the US points? I am an online member but stationed overseas and the only products are the British ones. I know they don't calculate fiber in their equation, just fat and calories, but I don't know how to figure out what the meal choices are over here. If anyone knows and could let me know I would appreciate it!

I think you could try to order the WW a home kit and it would have the Complete Food guide . There have to be tons of references online of the entire nutrition label of a food in the US. You'd just have to do your best. Maybe you could try a British WW meeting.

I don't know about converting, but I did get the UK formula. They figure only calories and saturated fat, but here in the US we figure calories, total fat, and fiber.

 

UK formula: (calories/70) + (saturated fat/4) = points

 

For example: 700 calories = 10 points. 4 grams saturated fat = 1 point.

10 + 1 = 11 points.

 

This may be more than you wanted to know...(it's easy with a calculator).

 

I can also tell you how to round off numbers if you're interested.
