“I’ve changed my life without disrupting my life”

“So much of this is about support—and if you sign up with me, I'll support you through this, and you can support me.”

Check out the science that will help you succeed!


WW is built on the latest nutritional and behaviour change research to help you eat what you love while building healthy habits.

Our science-backed SmartPoints® system takes the guesswork out of what to eat, cook, or order. No food is off-limits.

For extra flexibility, you'll get a custom list of ZeroPoint™ foods—which can include chicken, potatoes, whole-grain pasta, and more!—that you don't have to track or measure (depending on your food plan). This gives you freedom in what you eat, so you’re never missing out.
