How ZeroPoint foods work
To add flexibility to your SmartPoints Budget, you’ll have a certain amount of nutritious, go-to foods that are zero on myWW! They make eating simple, and you can feel confident that you're making smart choices for your health while losing weight.
What are ZeroPoint foods?
They’re exactly what they sound like—foods that have zero SmartPoints! Why? These nutritional powerhouses form the foundation of a healthy eating pattern. You can eat ZeroPoint foods without measuring or tracking and still lose weight.1
You can mix and match ZeroPoint foods and foods with SmartPoints values any way you like.
What’s great about them?
You don’t have to buy anything special. They’re regular, everyday foods, so you don’t have to eat differently from your friends.
You always have options. You’ll always have something delicious to eat, even with only a few SmartPoints to spend.
Tracking is simple. You don’t have to measure or track these foods, which adds flexibility to your SmartPoints Budget.
Why are some foods zero on one plan but not another?
On myWW, each plan has different foods that are designated as ZeroPoint foods—and the SmartPoints Budget is adjusted accordingly, depending on how many there are. The plan with the longest list of ZeroPoint foods has the lowest SmartPoints Budget, and the plan with the shortest list of ZeroPoint foods has the highest SmartPoints Budget.

Can I eat too many ZeroPoint foods?
Just because you don’t have to track ZeroPoint foods, it doesn’t mean they’re all-you-can-eat, or that they’re the only things you should eat. We recommend that you start with an amount that seems reasonable to you based on what you’ve typically eaten in the past. For example, if eggs are ZeroPoints on your plan and you normally put two eggs in your omelette, keep doing that. Now isn’t the time to increase that to four eggs just because they’re zero.
