Zero point food categories

So, what exactly are ZeroPoint foods?

These are WW's nutritious go-to options that are exactly what they sound like - foods that have a PersonalPoints™ value of, yes, zero. Think of them as your staples that will help set you up for a healthy pattern of eating. They’re zero heroes because:

  • They’re good for you - ZeroPoint foods were specifically chosen because World Health Organisation guidelines recommend eating these foods more frequently as part of a healthy pattern of eating. Oh, and they’re delicious!
  • They’re diverse - Use ZeroPoint foods as a base for creating a meal, pump up dishes by tossing in extra ZeroPoint foods, or reach for them at snack time to help you stay full and satisfied.
  • They come in just-for-you sizes. Sure, you could eat 12 eggs, but would you want to? Try sticking to your usual portion size (say, one or two eggs) for starters. If you find yourself still hungry, have another one—you’ll soon figure out the right portion size for you.
  • They can help you get to your goal - WW clinical trials show that you can eat ZeroPoint foods without weighing, tracking, or measuring and still lose weight, no matter which categories are on your personal list.
