Every Wednesday, we've an office tradition "Pho Wednesday's" -- I'm on Weight Watchers and attend when I can, but have been wondering what the real deal is on their small #18 -- beef pho with flank & brisket.

I've been counting the small as 13 pointsplus -- but perhaps I'm off? Thoughts??

Thanks!

    That's about right I think (ir's been a while).
    3 points per cup of noodles (6 points)
    2 points per oz lean meat (flank)
    4 points per oz fatty meat (brisket)
    1 point for hoisin sauce
    zero for broth, veggies, basil. I'm amazed that it is that much given it's probably one of the best WW friendly lunches around. You could save if you switched out of the brisket, but it's the best part.
