When it comes to losing weight, everyone’s needs are different. What works well for your sister, coworker, or best friend may not work as well for you. That’s why, for the first time ever, WW is offering more than one way to experience the journey with myWW.
The myWW program is freeing and flexible for you because it takes your personal needs into account and figures out which option best aligns with your lifestyle.
Curious about life on one of the other food plans—or wondering if you’re on the one that’s right for you? Read on.
What’s the difference between the three plans?
Each food plan has a different SmartPoints® Budget and ZeroPoint™ foods list:
Green has a sizable SmartPoints Budget and 100+ ZeroPoint foods (fruits and veggies)
Blue has a moderate SmartPoints Budget and 200+ ZeroPoint foods (fruits, veggies, and lean proteins).
Purple has a modest SmartPoints Budget and 300+ ZeroPoint foods (fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains).
Is one plan “better” than another?
Nope. Each one is based on our proven SmartPoints system and all are designed to give you similar weight loss. The one that’s best is the one that gives you the most flexibility, because that's the one that will be the most livable for you.
Can I switch plans if I want to?
Absolutely! But we recommend giving it two weeks before you make a change. Why? It can take a while to get used to a whole new way of eating. Our research shows that 2 weeks is a good amount of time to adjust. If you decide that switching is what’s best for you, you can do it right in Settings.
How do I decide which plan is best for me?
Start by thinking about the way you want to be eating and your weight-loss goals. Which plan will be the best fit?
- Would you rather have more SmartPoints to spend and would be happy limiting your ZeroPoint foods to fruits and vegetables (not including corn, peas, beans, or other starchy veggies)? Green might be for you.
- Do you like a moderate amount of tracking and having some ZeroPoint foods as go-to's? Blue might be best for you.
- Do you really like the ZeroPoint foods list and want more of them (and are happy to have fewer SmartPoints)? Purple might be a great option for you because of the addition of ZeroPoint foods like oatmeal, whole-wheat pasta, potatoes, and fat-free cottage cheese.
Each one is based on our proven SmartPoints system and all are designed to give you similar weight loss. The one that’s best is the one that gives you the most flexibility, and is livable for you.
Which plan will help me lose the most weight?
Our research found that members on all three plans achieved equal and consistent weight loss, so in that way all plans are equal. The plan that will get you the results you want is the one that’s the most flexible—because that’s the one that’s livable.
