BLTs - bites, licks and tastes

BLTs, also known as "bites, licks and tastes" can add up fast, especially during the holiday party season. If you are counting points or journaling, remember to count these. Let's say cheesecake is 10 points and someone gives you a bite (letting you know, of course, that it is just a little taste) tally up those 2 Weight Watcher points. There are approximately 8 tablespoons in a half cup so calculate accordingly.

Also watch the sizes of what you eat compared to what the package says is a serving. If you eat a normal sized chocolate chip toll-house cookie, it is 4 points. It may be helpful to plug your recipes into weight watchers e-tools if you are a subscriber.
