# PointsPlus Formula for Calculating Points

If you don’t have a WW calculator for figuring out point values on the *PointsPlus *plan, you can do it yourself with the formula that is used by the calculator.

I have two versions: the actual formula, which requires a regulator math calculator, and one that is simplified so that you can do it in your head. In fact, I have found the simple one helpful to remember because I can easily use it to figure out points when I’m shopping.

**Actual formula: **

- Divide protein by 10.79
- Divide carbohydrates by 9.12
- Divide fat by 3.9
- Divide fibre by 12.2
- Add together the protein, carb, and fat numbers.
- Now subtract the fiber number.
- You now have the point value.

**Simplified formula:**

- Add protein and carbs.
- Divide by 10.
- Divide fat by 4.
- Add fat number to protein and carb number.
- Divide fibre by 12.
- Subtract fibre number from the added numbers from the protein, carb, and fat.
- You now have the point value.

THANK YOU SO MUCH Food Refashionista for explaining the formula!

You’re welcome. I used it to come up with fruit values, should anyone like to see what those would be in Points+ if we had to add them. Not pretty numbers, I must admit.

Hello

You did help me very much. Thanks

very helpful! I don’t want to have to carry a book around with me, I always have a phone with a calculator

Great! I’m glad it will be convenient for you. That was the idea.
