Published January 14, 2022

Growth. It’s a quality so many of us are aiming for in our lives—but wow can it be tough. Unless we’re talking about growing your WW Budget. Now that can actually be quick and simple.

It’s one of the awesome features of our PersonalPoints™ Program: Eating non-starchy veggies, drinking water, and being active can add Points® to your daily or weekly Budget. The ability to add Points for these healthy actions helps turn them into habits, so they start feeling completely natural.

To put these habits front and center in your mind, consider these nine helpful products—all sold right in the WW Shop.

Best For: Loading up on Non-Starchy Vegetables

For every cup you eat, one PersonalPoint will be added to your daily Budget. Veggies like these have a ton of health benefits, thanks to their vitamins, minerals, and particularly fiber, which may help keep you fuller longer.

WW Silicone Food Huggers, $9.99, set of 4

Sometimes, nature doesn’t deliver produce in the ideal serving size. What to do with the rest of the tomato that you sliced for your sandwich? Or the other half of that lemon you squeezed onto your salad?

If your answer is “use cling wrap and watch it mummify in the fridge,” we’ve got a better solution: These four colorful, stackable silicone covers, each a different size. They create a tight seal around fruits and vegetables to keep cut produce fresh and tasty. Slip them on peppers, onions, lemons, limes, or , grapefruit halves. They’re BPA-free and safe for the freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.

Progressive Prepworks Produce ProKeeper, $14.99

Sidestep the age-old question, “Does this go in the fresh drawer or the crisper drawer?” with this storage bin that takes the guesswork out of how to best preserve your produce.

The grooved colander base drains excess water into the detachable bottom tray so you can wash off your items right in the container and then pop it straight into the fridge. Roomy enough to hold a head of lettuce and then some, the 3-quart, BPA-free plastic bin adds extra storage space to your refrigerator so you can load up on leafy greens, fresh-cut fruit, and raw veggies, plus extend their shelf life.

WW Reusable Produce Bags, $9.99

It’s a sad ending for your produce purchases when they spoil before you get a chance to eat them. (According to the FDA, a whopping 30 to 40 percent of the U.S. food supply ends up going to waste.)

This set of five reusable, breathable polyester bags—one small, two medium, and two large—not only help preserve your fruits and veggies for longer, they can replace the single-use plastic baggies you’d typically tote home from the store. Being kinder to the planet while enjoying your non-starchy veggies? Double the good vibes!

Best For: Maximizing Your Daily Water Intake

Pop another Point onto your daily Budget each day by reaching a water goal of 60 ounces. Staying hydrated not only supports your overall wellness journey, but guzzling H20 means you’re less likely to be drinking soda or other sugary beverages.

WW Half- Gallon Water Bottle, $19.99

People often mistake thirst as hunger, which means you could be reaching for a snack when all you really need is a good glug of water. (BTW, snacking is A-OK…but you gotta stay hydrated!). This 64-ounce bottle— made of Tritan plastic, which is free of BPA and all other bisphenols—, is tailor-made for hitting your water-tracking goals.

Progress markers with motivational phrases help you stay on top of your water consumption throughout the day, the bottle’s opening is roomy enough for ice cubes, and the removable snap-tight spout prevents leaks in your bag. A carrying handle and removable strap lets you tote the bottle everywhere, and it’s dishwasher-safe for easy-peasy cleaning.

Drinkpod 8-Stage Alkaline Water Pitcher, $41

Downing plenty of water is easier when it’s crisp and refreshing, right? If you like the taste of bottled water but not the single-use-plastic consumption, try this 2.5 liter pitcher: It delivers purified water through an 8-step filtration process that removes harmful contaminants and naturally ionizes your tap water.

With a slim design that won’t crowd your refrigerator shelf and an ergonomic handle that makes lifting and pouring a cinch, the BPA-free container churns out 1,500 cups of water before you have to swap out the filter. It’s also dishwasher-safe and comes with three filters so you’re well stocked right off the bat.

Drinkpod Ultimate Fizzpod Soda Maker, $85

If plain ol’ flat water leaves your taste buds feeling, well, flat, this automatic beverage carbonator makes H20 a sparkling delight. Whether you like fine bubbles or fountain-soda effervescence, you can easily customize the fizz level of your water with every use.

Simply fill the bottle, screw on the lid, click it into the soda maker, and press the lever several times until you reach your preferred amount of fizz. Not just for water, the Fizzpod comes with three bottles for making different flavors or beverages, from juices to cocktails. Ahhhhh. (CO2 cylinder not included.)

Best For: Boosting Your Physical Activity

Being active also adds Points®, this time to your weekly Budget. (How many? Depends on your weight, height, sex, activity, and length of the activity.) Exercise has all kinds of proven health benefits—from boosting confidence to lowering your risk of disease—plus, research shows that changing what you eat and increasing movement leads to 20% more weight loss than just altering what’s on your plate.

WW "I Can. I Will. Watch Me.™" Gym Bag, $25.99

A great bag isn’t just a boon for workout organization—it can also put you in the “let’s go!” mindset. This one is lightweight, roomy enough for all your athletic attire, and can double as a travel duffle. It also offers a few words of encouragement to remind you that you got this, always.

With a separate shoe compartment (fits sneakers up to a women’s size 13 and a men’s size 11) to keep schmutz off your clothes, plus a zippered waterproof pocket for sweat-soaked items, this bag holds all your fitness essentials without commingling the clean and the dirty (or worse, the wet). Can this foldable, packable, water-resistant nylon bag go the distance? It can and it will—just like you.

Oak & Reed Set of 3 Power Loop Resistance Bands, $15

You can get in a killer workout anytime, anywhere, with this set of three color-coded power loops that help you strengthen and tone. Each one offers a different level of resistance—light, medium, or heavy—use each separately or layer them to up the intensity. You can create up to seven different levels of resistance!

Ideal for lower and upper body moves that condition legs, hips, and glutes as well as for low-impact stretches, these bands can be tucked into the smallest of purses or even a coat pocket. Take ’ ‘em with you on vacations, business trips, or just to the park on your lunch break and get in fitness on your own time frame.

Power WearHouse Plus 2 Variable Wrist and Ankle Weights, $55

Good things come in small…weights. If you’re looking to level up, slide these sleek, bracelet-style bands around your wrists or ankles before yoga, pilates, walking, or other low-impact workouts. The added resistance can boost the intensity of your cardio, improve muscle tone, and may even help burn more calories.*

Each band comes with six tiny, attachable weights so you can customize the load up to 1 pound. The comfy silicone-coated bands resist water and odors and adjust to fit snugly around all wrist and ankle sizes. And if cheerful colors put pep in your step, then you’ll love that these bands come in pastel pink and mint green, in addition to classic black.

*Added resistance burns more calories:
