How Many Weight Watcher Points Are in Sushi?
The number of Weight Watchers points in sushi varies depending on the type, portion size and particular combination of ingredients. Points can range from a half point for a single portion of sea bass sashimi sushi without rice to 13 points for six pieces of shrimp tempura maki sushi.
Rice is a carbohydrate and adds points to sushi items, which are typically made with lower-calorie seafood and vegetables. Deep-fried ingredients, avocado and fattier fish such as salmon and mackerel add extra calories to sushi.
Weight Watchers, founded in 1963, focuses on a scientific approach to healthy eating and weight loss. In 1997, the company introduced a points-based system as an easier way to categorize foods and keep track of daily food consumption and activities.
