WW members Jessie D. and Jacqueline S. lost -29 lbs and -55 lbs.
People following the WW program can expect to lose 1-2 lbs/week.
Like our previous SmartPoints™ system, we look at calories and big-picture, complex nutrient data to create a food’s PersonalPoints value. But our NEW algorithm factors in even more nutritional elements to guide you toward foods higher in unsaturated fats, fibre, and protein and lower in added sugars and saturated fats. ZeroPoint foods have—you guessed it—zero PersonalPoints™.
These nutritional powerhouses were specifically chosen since they are nutrient, vitamin, and mineral-packed foods that serve as the foundation of healthy eating, and are generally critical to your overall health. The best part? You don’t have to weigh, measure, or track them- no matter how often you reach for them. Add bulk and flavour to your meals, without dipping into your Budget.

Your ZeroPoint Food Questions, Answered!
They’re real, wholesome nutritional powerhouses you can think of as your “grocery shopping go-to’s” because they form the foundation of a healthy pattern of eating. These foods, ranging from fruits and veggies, lean chicken and turkey breast, fish and shellfish, and whole wheat pasta and potatoes, encourage variety. They’re also regular, everyday foods that are easy to have on hand.
If you’re concerned about overeating ZeroPoint foods because they’re, well, zero, here’s some guidance: Eat them in your usual portion sizes. If eggs are one of your ZeroPoint foods and you normally eat two at breakfast, stick to that. If you’re still hungry later, have another one—you’ll soon figure out the right portion for you. Remember to use ZeroPoint foods as a base to build a healthy meal, to boost flavour in salads, omelettes, sandwiches, and more, or as a simple snack that will help you stay full and satisfied.
These foods are recommended by national and international guidelines (including the World Health Organization) as a part of a healthy pattern of eating. And of course, they’re delicious! That’s how we landed on fruits, non-starchy veggies, chicken and turkey breast, fish and shellfish, beans, peas and lentils, tofu and tempeh, nonfat yogurt and cottage cheese, potatoes and sweet potatoes, corn and popcorn, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, quinoa and other whole grains, oatmeal, eggs, and avocado.
