How WeightWatchers program works to help you lose weight | WW Australia
How our program changes your relationship with food
Weight loss and support. None of those on-a-diet feelings.
Get a weight-loss plan fit for you
Cookie-cutter programs don’t cut it—customisation does. When you sign up, you’ll answer a few questions that help us determine your metabolic rate. Then we’ll tailor a food plan that ensures healthy, lasting, totally liveable weight loss for you.
Learn the power of Points
Many programs consider just calories (kilojoules). Our system takes it a step further, taking into account a food’s complex nutritional factors, like added sugars, fibre, protein, and saturated fats vs. unsaturated fats, to create a single number: the Points® value. Points take the guesswork out of nutrition.
Use Points your way
Your plan will include a Points Budget, and how you spend is up to you. Wine on date night. Sunday brunch. Birthday cake. No food, event, or celebration is off-limits. And if you run out of Points? That’s where ZeroPoint® foods come in—they’re nutritional powerhouses you can eat anytime without tracking or measuring.
See why tracking is key
It’s scientifically proven! Tracking is the biggest predictor of weight loss, because it takes you from eating on autopilot to eating with awareness. Tracking has helped millions of members master portion sizes, turn mindless snacking into mindful snacking, and plan ahead so they can fit in their favourite foods.
Everything to help you succeed
We combine technology and community to get you to your goals.
Access your customised plan and Points Budget; food, water, activity, sleep, and weight trackers, barcode scanner (hello, easier grocery shopping); over 6,000 recipes and a restaurant database all right from your WW app.
When we say we have your back, we mean it. Have questions, need advice, or want extra encouragement?

Nope. While calories matter for weight loss—we’ll always take them into account—we also look at big-picture nutrition data to create one simple number: a food’s Points value. After all, calories from a biscuit impact your body differently than the same number of calories from grilled chicken, because they have different nutrients. (Both are on the menu, by the way—and personalised Points Budget, it’s up to you how you use your Points!) Just track, feel good, lose weight, and keep it off.
You can eat—Any. Time. You. Want. When you join the WeightWatchers program you will get a Points Budget and list of over 200 ZeroPoint foods which you don't have to track. Nothing’s off-limits, and any time you’re hungry, you can have a ZeroPoint food without dipping into your Budget.
Physical activity can get you closer to your weight-loss goals, so our goal is helping you find movement you enjoy. That way, it becomes a healthy habit that sticks! Whether you walk, do a (free) workout in the WW app, or stretch at your desk, we’ll reward you for being active—for every Point added from activity, a Point will be added to your weekly Budget. Win-win.
Get your Points Budget; food, activity, water, sleep, and weight trackers; barcode scanner; recipe database; restaurant finder; meditations and all-level workouts; 24/7 Live Coaching; and more. The app is included with all WW plans!
