What can I eat?

Everything's still on the menu. You'll get a personalised SmartPoints® Budget and access to the WW app to keep track of what you eat. Plus, enjoy ZeroPoint™ foods that you don't have to weigh, measure or track.

No foods are off limits. You will still count calories, but foods are grouped into a traffic light system of green, yellow and red foods to help guide your food choices.

How it works

WW uses the latest in nutritional and behaviour science to guide you towards smarter food choices. Knowing that moving more and shifting your mindset are important aspects of the wellness journey, WW has introduced easy-to-use tools in our app to give you personalised fitness goals, along with mini-meditations and audio workouts.

In addition to a personalised daily calorie budget, the Noom app includes checklists, worksheets and digital messaging to help their members manage mental and emotional barriers to weight loss.

Rewards WellnessWins™, our one-of-a-kind rewards programme, inspires and recognises you for your daily healthy habits. You earn “Wins” for doing everyday things (like tracking your meals) which you can redeem for FREE exclusive products and experiences. No rewards programme.
Community & Support WW meets you where you are. With our app, website, and in-person WW Workshops, you can choose the level of support that fits your life. Plus, all members have access to 24/7 live chat with a WW Coach and our exclusive members-only social network Connect, where you can find inspiration and chat to likeminded members.

Support is digital through a personal coach. After two weeks on the programme, you are placed into a digital support group with other members.
