    Default WW Points For Alcohol

    Hi,

    I'm new to Weight Watchers and while I mostly understand the points plus system, I am confused on alcohol. Most of the info I find online says a shot of vodka, whiskey, etc, is 4 points. However, when I put the nutritional info for a shot of vodka into the points plus calculator, it comes up 1 point. Since alcohol is only carbs, no protein, fat, fiber, I'm wondering how they are coming up with 4 points? If anyone can shed light on this, I would appreciate it.

    You can't use the calculator for alcohol points. You do need to use the points found in the tracker. This is because most of the calories in alcohol are found in the alcohol grams and that information is not provided.
