    At what point do I need to start counting points for my salad? I usually get the Just Lettuce brand or chop up my own. I know how to count for multiple servings of the dressing, but what about the greens? I asked my leader and she said that she usually didn't worry about that because we need lots of veggies. I always eat at the lower or middle of my point range, just in case I under-estimate anything. So I'm sure a huge salad won't add up that much.

    Any ideas?

    By the way, Olive Garden dressing is onl 2.5 points per two tablespoons! You can buy a bottle for $4. I save it for a special treat - having some tonight!

    Thanks EveryBuddy!

    I wouldn't worry about points for lettuce. 1 cup of shredded lettuce has about 6 calories according to the website I use foodtv.com. To get to 1 point you would need to eat 8 cups at one sitting!

    Veggies are free and ww has built it into their system that you can eat as much as you want of them. I wouldn't count points for them except carrots and potatoes.

    Right. I don't count the veggies except for the ones that are starchy. And thanks for the info about Olive Garden dressing. That stuff is great! I will have to buy some soon.
