How many WW points in a piece of grilled chicken? 13????

The online calculator gave me points of 13!!! That seems very high for 1 piece of boneless, skinless chicken?

If people have questions they will be answered by the community. This is a place where people help people, and not be censored or shouted down.

A 3oz portion of boneless, skinless chicken breast is about the size of a deck of cards, for reference. So the chicken breast that you pull out of a package from a grocery store may be 2-3 times that big, so 6 to 9 points. A whole double-breast is probably over 13 points.

I always weigh my portions to make sure how many oz they are..It's a good idea to weigh and measure in the beginning..Also if you find your not getting the results you think you should be getting, after being on the program a while..then you should also start to weigh and measure things again..portions tend to start getting bigger..

Thank you, 7:15 pm poster!

I agree about this being a place for questions to be asked and answered. For those who don't want to read WW points questions, don't open the discussion links that relate to those questions - most of them are indicated in the topic line.

ww questions

people can ask any question they want, that's why its an online forum. Doesn't mean you need to read and/or comment on the question because you think its dumb. Some people think its dumb to spend money on a diet program when you can use your resources and do the same diet.

PP - I think this was cleared up 4 years ago. This thread is pretty ancient.

And imagine what it took to find it and bump it up from so long ago. Sad.

Figuring out Points in a Mom and Pop Restaurant

A lot of "Mom and Pop" restaurants do not have a nutrition list so I find my self giving the points to what I think. I know this stinks, but does anyone have a different way to find out the real answer to how many points?

PP - I usually look for a similar chain restaurant that has a nutritional guide, and use that for mom and pop restaurants. The points may not match up exactly, but it's probably better than guessing.
