What if a food, such as whole wheat bread is on the power foods, but it has carbs.....does it not have any points? Can you eat unlimited amounts of food on the power food list?
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 5 years ago.
Yes, you include the bread if you're using the calculator on the left (it is for the PointsPlus program).

The calculator on the right is for the old program.

You cannot eat unlimited amounts of food on the power food list. Power foods can still have points, depending upon the food. The point of the PowerFood list is to steer you to making better food choices.
