What does "about 2" servings really mean?

Recommended Posts

I'm confused about points for Campbells Chunky Healthy Request Grilled Chicken & Sausage Gumbo (15 oz microwavable):

 

One serving is 130 cal, 2.5 g. fat and 3 g. fiber. - thiscomes out to 2 points.

 

The container has "about 2" servings.

 

If I double the NI, it comes out to 5 points. If it's less than 2 complete servings, it comes out to 4 points.

 

How do you calculate this? What does "about 2" servings mean?

How many ounces are in a serving size and how many in the container? Find the number of calories per ounce and then multiple that by the total number of ounces in the can. That should tell you. Usually, I just say there are 2 full servings, but when you are at your last points, it's nice to squeeze in as many as you're allowed to! haha

I think when you enter the whole thing it computes more points because you have to cap the fiber at 4. When it is separate servings it will be 2 points.

 

Does that make sense to you? Anyway, it is all about the fiber and how it works into the points.

I've measured out the amounts in the can and I've found that it's usually more like 1 3/4 servings. But I usually divide it as equally as I can and count the points for each serving from the NI on the can.
