While the Points Programme gives members a Points Budget, the GLP-1 Programme focuses on three daily nutrition targets: protein, fruits and veggies, and water. Both programmes include activity goals, but the GLP-1 Programme target is daily. What’s not different: The award-winning WW app filled with recipe and meal inspo, trackers, and behaviour-change tips. Plus, a strong support system of expert coaches and fellow members.
The programme was designed for people who are using a second-gen GLP-1 prescription weight-management medication and not living with diabetes. People taking a first-gen GLP-1 should follow the Points Programme, and those living with diabetes should follow the Diabetes Programme.
While GLP-1s are prescribed to manage weight and diabetes, the GLP-1 Programme is designed for those taking them for weight management. People living with diabetes need a programme that takes their condition into account, like our Diabetes Programme. It encourages members to weigh, measure, and track the foods that may have the biggest impact on blood sugar levels.
On the GLP-1 Programme, everyone has the same targets for fruits and vegetables (four servings per day), hydration (1.75 litres per day, 7-8 glasses a day), and activity (30 minutes per day). That said, protein targets may be different since they are individualised based on what you weigh at the beginning of the programme (0.80g of protein per 1kg starting body weight). Ultimately, when it comes to your diet, always follow the recommendations as provided by medical professionals.
Everyone’s daily target is 30 minutes. This helps you work towards the expert recommendation of at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and strength training at least twice a week.
The GLP-1 Programme Go-to Food list is made up of foods that form the foundation of a balanced eating pattern–especially for those taking prescription weight-management medications. It includes foods high in protein, as well as fruits and vegetables to help you reach your nutrition targets. Find it in the What to Eat tab.
There are Virtual Workshops exclusively for members on the GLP-1 Programme. You can access these through "Find a Workshop" in the WW app or here. There’s also a Connect group for other existing users of GLP-1 medications called “WW GLP-1 Programme” where you can interact with other members.
