Why tracking is important

Being mindful of how much you eat, move, and whether you're gaining, losing, or maintaining your weight, helps you see your progress more clearly.

It also helps you gain insight into patterns, which is key for making sustainable change.

How to track

The WeightWatchers app makes tracking really simple.

It's a fast and easy way to keep track of your

Points® as you use them, and track your weight and activity too. 

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Start by tracking that!

On your My Day screen (what you see when you open the app) tap 'Breakfast'. Search for a food and check the options that display. Click the one you want, adjust the serving size and tap 'Track'.

You can save meals to track them faster next time. When you track Breakfast, you'll see these under 'Frequent breakfasts'.

Pro tips

  • Use the Barcode Scanner. Scan the barcode of almost any packaged food and it’ll automatically calculate the SmartPoints values for you.
  • Take a pic. Don’t have time to track? Take a picture of your meal and track it later. It’ll help you remember exactly what you ate.
  • Pre-track your meal. Planning ahead will help you know how many
  • Points you have to spend and what you want to spend them on.
