    Default KOREAN food points? Anyone?

    Can anyone find out points for Korean foods? I keep searching and all I came up with is kimchi is zero.
    Im looking for bulgogi, noodles, other kimchi/side dishes, kim bap rolls, soups, etc.
    We eat Korean food several days a week. Im sure this is one of my biggest issues as it is very salty and you eat a ton of rice due to the spice level.
    Thanks in advance!!

    I love bulgogi too. It's 5 pts for 1 cup. Korean barbecue short ribs are 8 pts for 4 oz.

    If you make your own recipes figuring points for the nutritional values would be the most accurate. calorieking.com has a lot of information.

    You might find dottis helpful. That is where I found some help for me since I live in Korea right now. I am not much help as I do the best I can and estimate. But dottis does have some points. Here is the link. http://www.dwlz.com/WWinfo/korean.html

    I lived in Korea as well, but it was 15 years ago.

    I refer to my Korean cookbooks and try to figure points from their recipes - sure, it'll be different than the restaurant's version, but it gives me a good estimate. It's also a huge pain. I love it that kimchi is zero points, but I try to avoid it around WI, because of the water retention issue. Oh, for the noodles, I try to get the NI from similar noodles at the Asian grocery, and figure points from there - with the vegetables themselves, I assume they're Core, so I don't need to worry about counting them (although I do estimate and count the oil they may be marinating in, for the side dishes).

    Hi, I guess you are working in a hogwan? Ive only passed through Daegu on the way to the east coast. We visit Daejon and the surrouding areas where my husband was born. Do they have WW in Korea? I would pay for a book from them if they did. Ive asked my SIL but she doesnt know nor was willing to find out it seems.
    Thanks all.
