What is different between weight watchers points and points plus?

The ProPoints plan is a radical change from the old points system for Weight Watchers. Its original Points system, launched in 1995, assigned a dieter a number of points they were allowed to eat per day, which corresponded to calories and saturated fat in foods. All foods were allowed (chocolate, carbohydrates and so on) as long as you never exceeded your daily points allowance. Its simplicity made it one of the most successfu diet plans in the worl. Now with the new system the Weight Wahcers dieticians say science has progressed with weight loss. Recent shows successful slimming is not just about counting calories but about what caloires you consume. For example, your body can burn up to 25 per cent more energy digesting proteins and high fibre foods than it can processing ­sugars and fats with the same calorie value.

So while by the old points system a ­chocolate bar and a steak might have had the same points value because they had the same amount of calories, under the new ProPoints system the steak is allocated fewer points because your body uses up more energy processing it. In other words, the better the food is nutritionaly, the more energy your body burns digesting it and the more of it you are able to eat.

The new system encourages you to eat healthier foods such as lean proteins, wholemeal bread, fruit and vegetables as you can have more of these under the new Weight Watcher points scheme. Also with the ProPoints system alongside your daily allowance of around 29 ProPoints food values you get an extra weekly allowance of 49 points for treats which you can save up for a big treat or simply use throughout the week. This is like a safety net as it enables dieters to get back on track if they have a slip from the diet plan.

Another major difference from the old system is that all fruit and most vegetables — fresh, frozen or canned in natural juices and drained — have a zero rating so you can eat them anytime “free”.

The scheme encourages you to eat more fruit and vegetables which is good for health.
