Does anyone know how I count a grilled chicken breast...

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I have been on weight watchers for 6 years and have ordered grilled chicken breast several times at Bob Evans.

In e-tools for weight watchers (I am a lifetime weight watcher as of august 2010) it shows a three ounce piece of grilled chicken to be 3 points plus by itself.

I also had green beans and brocolli with the meal along with 1/2 of a roll with no butter.

I had 18 points plus out of 26 allotted for dinner.

How should this be counted. This was nothing else involved. Meaning no barbecue sauce, butter on the roll or anything else.

Also I had to wait 45 minutes on this meal...we told the manager...and they told us...they had only one cook tonight...and the meal still came to 20 dollars as what mom ordered...she got a vegetable plate...was all charged separate.

And she got raspberry flavoring in her iced tea and they charged 20 cents more for that.

And also made a one dollar and ninety-nine cent charge for rolls that she asked for that they never had before.

Told management all about this....and...they take three dollars off the bill....THREE DA** DOLLARS!!!.

Needless to say...we will NOT be going back there.

    I got your spark mail. I have no idea how to count this....we don't have a Bob Evans restaurant and have never been to one. Do you have the Dining out guide? You have etools....or you can go to their website and figure out what you had. Good luck.

    I am not well-versed in the point system. However, did you calculate the points or were they pre-calculated. This sometimes will make a bit of difference. Green beans
    sometimes have bacon cooked with them and some add a bit more fat. You may want to try to calculate the items individually and see how close they are. Personally, I would than take an average.
    As for the rest of your experience it doesn't sound good.
    Good idea to post such questions. If you haven't found an answer which addresses your issues I would suggest asking Mimi when she returns. She also knows the plan and may help put things in perspective.

    That roll must have had a lot of WW points! Or maybe the broccoli and green beans have butter? I would think that broccoli and green beans would be either none or very few points and I think that the chicken, unless it was very big, would be 3. Was it bigger than 3 ounces? Often a roll is at least six points or so. It has to be the roll!
