The Weight Watchers Points Plus system is a method used to help individuals manage their food intake for weight loss. It assigns point values to foods based on their nutritional content, and each person is given a daily points allowance based on their personal characteristics.

The daily Points Plus allowance is calculated using a formula that takes into account several factors:

\[Points = \left(\frac{Weight}{10}\right) + \left(\frac{Height}{10}\right) - \left(\frac{Age}{5}\right) + SexFactor\]Where:

- Weight is in pounds
- Height is in inches
- SexFactor is 4 for males and 2 for females

- Divide weight by 10
- Divide height by 10
- Divide age by 5
- Add 4 points for males or 2 points for females
- Sum up all the values from steps 1, 2, and 4, then subtract the value from step 3
- Round to the nearest whole number
- Ensure the final value is between 26 and 71 points

Let's calculate the daily Points Plus allowance for a 35-year-old woman who weighs 150 pounds and is 65 inches tall:

- Weight factor: 150 / 10 = 15
- Height factor: 65 / 10 = 6.5
- Age factor: 35 / 5 = 7
- Sex factor: 2 (for female)
- Points = 15 + 6.5 - 7 + 2 = 16.5
- Rounded to 17 points

The green portion of the bar represents the calculated Points Plus allowance (31 points) relative to the maximum allowance of 71 points.
