What are SmartPoints?


SmartPoints is an evolution of Points and ProPoints - our simple counting system that nudges you towards nutritious, healthier foods. We give each food and drink a simple number based on its total energy, sugar, saturated fat and protein. All you have to do is stick to your personalised SmartPoints Budget and enjoy your lifestyle while you lose weight and get healthier.

Try the WW SmartPoints calculator in the app

The WW app calculates your SmartPoints for you automatically, so you don't need to worry about the maths! All you have to do is track your food and drink using our simple food tracker, or our quick and easy barcode scanner. There's also an in-built calculator if you need to quickly find the SmartPoints value of a food or drink.

How do SmartPoints work?

You get a SmartPoints Budget


Spend it on any food or drink you like. Keep track of your SmartPoints as you use them - the fastest and easiest way is with the WW app.


Enjoy extra flexibility


You'll also get an additional weekly SmartPoints Budget. You might want to enjoy a few extra SmartPoints each day, or save them up for the weekend. You can also roll over up to 4 unused SmartPoints each day into this weekly allowance.


More freedom with ZeroPoint foods
