How many Weight Watchers Smart Points in your favourite take-away foods?


Whether it’s burgers, bakes or milkshakes, we find out how much you’ll have to budget


How many SmartPoints are there in some of these tasty treats?

Now we’re in 2017, the chances are that we’re all thinking of trying to shed a few excess pounds.

But the good news is that doesn’t mean going without all our favourite foods completely – whether that’s a burger, bake or a delicious milkshake.

If you’re a member of Weight Watchers, you will know that it allocates every food a SmartPoints value based on calories, saturated fat, sugar and protein.

Calories set the baseline for how many SmartPoints a food is worth, while sugar and saturated fat increase SmartPoints and protein lowers the number of SmartPoints that something “costs.”

Each member receives a SmartPoints budget based on their gender, age, height and weight, and which is split into a daily allowance and a weekly allowance, and you can ‘spend’ it on whatever you like.

The minimum daily allowance is 30, and the maximum is 93. Whatever you don’t use, you lose. The weekly allowance starts at 14 and goes up to 42, and is ideal if you want to add a treat or two to your regular diet.

But what can you actually afford on your budget?

Here are how many SmartPoints there are in some of those favourite treats.
