Weighing Your Options: How WW Is Proven for Weight Loss

‏‎
If you’re searching for a weight-loss solution—or you’ve tried other programs that haven’t worked—you’re in the right place. WW is proven to be three times as effective as other programs after one year* because we teach you how to get results that last.

Study after study shows the power of the WW program to help you lose weight and stay on track. In fact, there are 125 studies and 35 independent clinical trials that show the efficacy of WW—more than any other weight-loss program. Plus, our PersonalPoints Program is our most individualized program yet; no two weight-loss plans are alike because no two people are alike! And that’s just the beginning. Read on to find out the many ways WW will help you succeed.

WW Gives You Lasting Results

Unlike other weight-loss programs, we’re a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, one that covers every angle: nutritious eating patterns, easy activities and challenges to help you move more, a vast community of Coaches and like-minded members for support, and the most impactful behavioural science to help you shift your mindset—and hit your goals. Read on for the details.

There’s zero deprivation


On WW, there are no good or bad foods—and you don’t have to eat prepackaged or frozen meals. We encourage you to cook your faves and dine out when you want! Unlike other programs, no food is off-limits, so you can enjoy your life fully and never be “on a diet.”

We do much more than count calories


So many weight-loss plans are just calorie trackers. WW is like having a nutritionist in your pocket. Our PersonalPoints Program starts with calories and then takes into account all the important nutritional qualities of a food, including protein, fibre, natural vs. added sugars, and saturated vs. unsaturated fats.


Your plan is 100% personalized to you, so you won’t feel hungry


After you tell us what you love to eat, we build your own customized list of ZeroPoint foods, nutritional powerhouses you don’t have to track or measure. In addition to your daily and weekly food Budget, you reach for your ZeroPoint foods throughout the day. No hanger with WW!

We help you build healthy habits in a way that feels effortless


Eating vegetables, drinking lots of water, exercising: All are important to weight loss, but we know they can be hard to start and even harder to stick with. That’s why our program encourages these healthy habits in clever ways, based on behavioural science, so that one day you turn around and realize, “Wow, this habit is now second nature.”


You’ll learn the latest behaviour change strategies


Our chief scientific officer holds a PhD in clinical psychology, leading a robust team of other PhDs and registered dietitians (RD). With their guidance, we teach members that how they feel and think impacts what they do—quick-fix programs don’t, which is why they rarely work. Our nutrition and behaviour change scientists provide you with simple, practical strategies to shift your mindset and how you approach eating—for good.

You’ll never have to go it alone—our support is here 24/7


WW’s community and Coaching are legendary. Expert WW Coaches (who are members themselves) are only a tap away in the WW app—so ask anything, anytime. And our members-only social network, aptly called Connect, is there whenever you need motivation, inspiration, or even new recipes!
