As a former member of Weight Watchers, I have just heard about the implementation of the Points Plus program. So vegetables and fruits now have no points? Are there exceptions? Is it true that canned fruits (even those in light syrup) are not "free"?

Fruits and veggies are zero points if you are following the Points Plus program.  You should be striving to get 5 servings (4oz) per day.  They are really stressing the "eat until you are satisfied".  Canned fruit that is canned in its OWN juice or water is also zero points.  There are some exceptions like Corn and Potatoes (and other startchy veggies) that are not to be counted as zero points.
