About ZeroPoint foods
Scrambled eggs. Stir-fried chicken and veggies. Nonfat yogurt dotted with blueberries. That’s just a taste of the delicious ZeroPoint foods you’ll dig into on the WeightWatchers program. ZeroPoint foods have—you guessed it—0 Points® because they serve as the foundation of healthy eating. (How does the Points system work? Click here!) Full of Fibre and protein, these foods also support overall health, keep you full, and bulk up and add flavour to your meals. And, of course, you can eat as much as you like.
3 ways to eat the zero heroes
ZeroPoint foods make our program flexible while guiding you toward healthier eating habits, so you’ve got options for incorporating these MVPs into your day.
- Create a base. Start with a ZeroPoint food, like savory turkey meatballs or spaghetti squash, then add other ingredients that have Points values (a favourite sauce, cheese, a slice of garlic bread) to build out your meal.
- Pump up a dish. Toss ZeroPoint foods, like crisp mixed veggies or hearty lentils, into soups, stews, or pastas to make meals more filling and add variety and flavour.
- Tame hunger. ZeroPoint foods are ideal go-to snacks when your stomach is grumbling or you want to avoid that hangry feeling. Crunchy popcorn or hummus with veggie dippers, anyone?

Your ZeroPoint® Food questions, answered!
Packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients (like Fibre and protein), these everyday foods support feelings of fullness, helping you make the most of your Points Budget and lose weight without feeling hungry.
If you’re concerned about overeating ZeroPoint foods because they’re, well, zero, here’s some guidance: Eat them in your usual portion sizes. For example, if you usually have two eggs for breakfast, stick to that. If you’re still hungry later, have another one. You’ll soon figure out the right portion for you—which might differ depending on the day!
These foods are recommended by national and international nutrition guidelines (including those by the World Health Organization) as part of a healthy pattern of eating. And, of course, they’re delicious!
