Diabetes-Tailored Weight Loss Plan | WW AU

Clinically backed to boost overall health

Diabetes-Tailored Plan from WeightWatchers

Our program, developed by scientists and backed by research, has been shown to help those living with diabetes lose weight and lower their blood sugar.^

A diabetes weight-loss program created by nutrition and behavioural scientists



First step: Tell us about yourself


After joining WW, get started in our app and we’ll ask you a few questions, including whether you live with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. If you answer yes, we will create a food plan that takes your unique health needs into account.


We'll customise the plan for you


We take into account your weight, height, and sex (which help us calculate your metabolic rate).


Follow our Points system


Our WeightWatchers Points system tallies up complex nutritional data into one simple number. Points guide you toward foods with higher protein, higher fibre, and lower added sugar. These foods are also less likely to cause spikes in blood sugar.


Feel confident that you’re on a science-backed program


Your plan is carefully designed with diabetes in mind and based on recommendations from the International Diabetes Federation.


Stay supported on your journey


Most weight-loss plans don’t understand what it’s like to live with diabetes. With our members-only ‘Living with Diabetes’ Connect group, you’ll feel like part of a community who gets it. Plus get access to our science-backed advice from our experts and other diabetes articles.

“Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes was tough. I had to change the narrative, not just for myself, but for my entire family. WW gave me the tools that showed me how to do better.”

WW and diabetes FAQs

After you sign up and log into the WW app, you’ll see a pop-up message instructing you to answer a few simple questions. When prompted, indicate that you’re living with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.


No, it’s simply tailored for members living with diabetes. You’ll still enjoy all aspects of the WW program and have a customised ZeroPoint foods list that takes diabetes into account.


If you have prediabetes, the regular WW program is suitable for you. The Diabetes-Tailored Plan is for people who have been told by their doctor or another healthcare provider that they have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

WW isn’t designed for people who are pregnant—therefore, the Diabetes-Tailored Plan is not recommended if you have gestational diabetes.


Our plan is not a replacement for a medical provider, and weight loss should never come before health. If your blood sugar is not where it needs to be, continue to monitor it according to your healthcare provider’s recommendations and follow your provider’s guidance on how to stabilise those numbers. We’ll be here to help you eat healthier, move more, and shift your mindset—while living your best life with diabetes.
