If you've ever been motivated to lose weight, there's a good chance you've heard of Weight Watchers. The original Weight Watchers Points program has been renamed the PointsPlus program, but it has the same overall emphasis on making nutritious choices using a food rating system individualized to meet your weight-loss goals. Depending on the nutrition content of the food item, Starbucks offerings range from 0 to 15 using the PointsPlus system.
