Hairy Dieters Propointed! ***Smart Point Updated***


As you all know I love the Hairy Dieters cookbooks and when I first got each of the books I sat down and calculated the ProPoints in all the recipes so I didn't have any excuse not to use them. Now that SmartPoints is out I have gone back and calculated the smart points values after numerous requests to do so. I know a lot of people will be sticking with ProPoints for the forseeable future so I have left the ProPoints values in too. I have also added the SmartPoints that need to be taken from weeklies for anyone following the No Count plan.

Just a few things to note on this post and the posts of the other books!


  • I am in Ireland and do not have access to the same e-tools those in the UK and else where have, so these values have been calculated using the food guides given in classes and the shopping guide. So cannot guarantee 100% accuracy. 
  • For some of the recipes, when working out ProPoints values I did use the calories given in the book as a guide to estimate but have NOT done this for any of the SmartPoint Values.
  • For the ProPoint values for this first book, I also replaced all oil with low cal Spray oil. I did not do that for Smart Point values or any of the other books unless the recipe specifies 'oil for spraying' . If you wish to use low cal Spray oil instead you will need to adjust the calculations.
  • For the recipes that involve blending fruit and veg, I used the MyFitnessPal recipe builder to get the full nutritional info and then used the calculator to work out the SmartPoints. I did this as the guides tell you that blended fruit needs to be counted but I couldn't find anywhere to show how it should be calculated. 
  • Apart from the note about oil above, all recipes have ProPoints & SmartPoints calculated as they are in the book. No substitutions made, if it says full fat cheese thats what I pointed, semi skimmed was pointed as such etc. 

  • However, when working out values for No Count I made a few substitutions
    • Milk changed to skimmed instead of semi skimmed. 
    • Rice changed to brown rice (with the exception of Aboria and Paella)
    • Pasta/Spaghetti changed to brown pasta
    • Cous Cous changed to wholemeal cous cous
    • Rindless Back Bacon changed with bacon medallions
    • Pitta's & Wraps changed to the WW branded versions which are free.
  • Finally, please let me know if any of these are incorrect and I will check and update them ASAP.

    1. It is per portion. Some of the recipes gave options for how many it served and I worked out the points for both. Hope that makes sense.

  5. The Golden Veg Soup I worked out at 1 pp per portion, as the parsnips aren't zero points. Great list ^_^
