How Weight Watchers Works | WW Canada
Beyond the Scale
How it works
With Weight Watchers no food is off limits. We want you to eat your favourite foods – only smarter! Each food is assigned a SmartPoints value based on calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein. By spending your SmartPoints within your budget you will be nudged towards healthier choices, which leads to results.
Earn FitPoints with any activity. Take the stairs, shovel the drive, or clean your house and track your activity towards your weekly FitPoints goal.
It‘s hard to lose weight on your own. Stay motivated with meetings, talk to real-life experts or join our social community on Connect and share your journey.
The science of SmartPoints
Everything is still on the Menu
Calories set the baseline for how many SmartPoints a food is worth.
Sugar and saturated fat increase the SmartPoints value.
Protein lowers the number of SmartPoints that something “costs.”
You will start eating more fruits, veggies and lean protein, but less sugar and bad fats.
Move a little more, at your own pace
Every Activity Counts
Each week you will be assigned a FitPoints goal, it’s up to you how to reach it! Remember every activity counts – walking, cleaning, dancing – you name it!
Sync your device with your Weight Watchers account and earn FitPoints for all of the activity it tracks.
Browse our library of fitness videos, tips and everyday workout routines, for every activity level.
