set points

Recommended Posts

I have read up some on set points but i am a bit confused about one thing.

do you use set points even if you KNOW what the points value is...i get the restaurant situation but here is my example:

 

i fry up 3 whole eggs for myself...2 points a piece. is that 6 points for 3 eggs, or is it 5 points as a set point value...is calling that 5 points using set points incorrectly?

My feeling is, if you know the POINTS for something you should use them. In the situation you used as an example, you know you've eaten 3 eggs and you know the points are 6. So, you've eaten 6 points, even if you decide to use SetPOINTS and track only 5.

Set points are not to be used in situations where you can weigh or measure your portion, i.e. when eating out or dinner at friends, etc. You can certainly count 3 eggs so that's 6 points.

My understanding is that set points are only to be used where you cannot weigh or measure something, such as a restaurant situation, party, etc. If you know the points and count point then you should do so when you know what they are. I have not used set points yet, but wouldn't hesitate if I felt the need.
