Finding Nutrition Facts for Weight Watchers

by Jon Henshaw

Introducing Weight Watchers(R) TurnAround(TM)!WeightWatchers uses a tool called POINTS Tracker that helps you keep track of the food you’re eating each day. The idea is that you have a point range that you need to within in order to see weight loss results. Although their POINTS Tracker tool has a ton of foods in their database, they don’t have all of them. That’s where their POINTS Calculator comes in. If you can’t find the food in their database, they have a tool that will calculate points for a particular food based on calories, fat and fiber. But what happens when you can’t find the food in their database and you don’t have the nutrition facts for it? That’s where NutritionData’s Nutrition Facts Calorie Counter comes in.

Their website has Nutrition Facts for most fast food restaurants and for other food like produce, meats and poultry. The thing I like about NutritionData’s website is that they go beyond the typical Nutrition Facts. They also display the moisture content, Caloric Ratio Pyramid, Nutrient Balance Indicator and Nutritional Target Map. However, most of the time, it’s just a good place to get the calories, fat and fiber numbers to plug into the the WeightWatchers’ POINTS Calculator.
