The new points plus and 360 do not use calories to determine the points of a food. It is fat, carbs, fiber, and protein. Where the old way was calories, fat, and fiber.

to the best of my knowledge (mainly gained by reading the pre-packaged meals)

- the old points system didn't count fibre (I could be wrong on that)
- for whatever reason, the new system usually is higher points than the old, for the same item, but possibly gives you more daily points (again, I only have used the P+, but no longer - I stopped my online subscription)

I think the new 360 gives you more goals and suggestions, to help you make it a lifestyle, not just a 'temporary fix'

Anybody here doing the weight watchers program? I am and I'm doing the older points system. I like it and it fits into my lifestyle. I'm wondering how the points plus and also the new 360 plan differ from the old points system?? Anyone know? Just trying to weigh my options. Thanks!
