Doctor-recommended behavioural weight-loss program^

The WW Points® Program:

Our very own nutrition science

Go beyond calorie counting

We take a food’s calories (aka kilojoules) and complex nutritional info and turn it into a single number—the Points® value. The healthier a food is, the fewer Points it’ll have.

Stick to a Budget

Get your customised Points Budget to “spend” on any foods you want. Track your food in the app. As long as you stay within your Budget, you’ll lose weight.

Eat healthier, without guesswork

Nutrient-dense ZeroPoint® foods require no tracking or measuring. These are the foods you should aim to eat often—and anytime.

Be in good company

Connect is a members-only, judgement-free space to share your favourite Points hacks, problem-solve food challenges, discover recipes that fit your Budget, and celebrate each other.

We help you lose weight and build healthy habits, one small step at a time. Fad weight-loss diets can be restrictive, and rarely work long term. We have more than 160 publications, which includes research that shows WeightWatchers’ efficacy to help members lose weight and keep it off^^.

Our updated, simplified weight-loss program makes it easier for you to follow and find success. Every member gets a tailored Points Budget and streamlined list of over 200 ZeroPoint foods. Compared to programs of the past, we now use advanced nutrition science to factor in more food label data, like added sugars, fibre, and unsaturated fats, to guide you toward the healthiest foods.


What you eat is up to you—and we’ll show you how to enjoy your favourite foods in a way that gets you to your goals. With WeightWatchers, there are no “good” or “bad” foods—just nutritious and less nutritious ones.


We make it as easy as possible. You’ll get a Points® Budget to “spend” however you want. You’ll track your meals, drinks, and snacks in the WW app and enjoy as many ZeroPoint™ foods as you'd like. Activity can also boost your weight loss (vs. only focusing on food)ᶿᶿ.

Our team includes nutrition and behavioural scientists, registered dietitians, clinical researchers, and more. Together they help you overcome common weight-loss hurdles—like stress-eating or late-night snacking—while our exclusive Points system makes nutrition easier—so easy that healthier eating will feel like second nature. After you sign up, you’ll answer a few questions to get a plan customised for you, and build healthy habits with proven behaviour change techniques.
