All about myWW

Everything you need to know about the new WW program—including how to take our personal assessment and find the best approach for you.

When it comes to losing weight, everyone’s needs are different. What works well for your sister, coworker, or best friend may not work as well for you. While we've always offered a personalized SmartPoints Budget based on age, weight, height, and sex, now you can take a personal assessment that will match you with a unique way to experience the WW journey. And if you find that your plan is no longer working for your life, you have the ability to switch

All plans are equally flexible, simple, and effective when it comes to losing weight—they just help you get there in different ways.

What's different about myWW

 

If you're new to WW, you'll start with a science and behavior-based personal assessment that asks a range of questions about your unique food preferences, activity level, lifestyle, and approach to weight loss. Based on your responses, we'll match you to an eating style that fits you best—Green, Blue, or Purple.

If you're a current member, you're already an expert—on yourself, on the WW program, and on what you need to be successful. Never before have you been able to choose how you live WW. Well, that’s all changing. Starting now, you’ll have the opportunity to try an entirely new plan—Green or Purple—or stay on Freestyle—now called Blue! And if you ever want to switch plans, you can do it easily in the WW app.

How does myWW work? 

 

Each food plan has a unique balance of SmartPoints and ZeroPoint™ foods:

Green has a sizable SmartPoints® Budget and 100+ ZeroPoint™ foods (fruits and non-starchy veggies). 

Weight Watchers myWW Green Zero Point Foods

Blue has a moderate SmartPoints Budget and 200+ ZeroPoint foods (fruits, veggies, and lean proteins). If this eating style looks familiar, that’s because it's the same as WW Freestyle®.

What research went into myWW?

 

The myWW program was nearly 2 years in the making. It's based on extensive research into what members want and need in order to be successful, along with insights and trends from around the globe. We then collaborated with our Global Science team to understand where those trends overlapped with science. All three plans were tried and tested with almost 20,000 members globally through interviews, concept testing, pilots, and clinical trials. 

 

What can I eat? 
 

Plenty! By combining your SmartPoints Budget with your ZeroPoint foods,  you'll always have plenty of options. Want some meal ideas to get you started? We've got 20 of our members' favorite recipes right here
 

Which plan will help me lose the most weight?  
 

All of them. No, really


After 2+ years of research and extensive testing with over 20,000 members around the globe, we learned that members on Green, Blue, and Purple achieved equal and consistent weight losses. 
No plan is better than another—they're just flexible in different ways. Some people find a long list of ZeroPoint foods works best for them. Others would rather have more SmartPoints to spend. The one that’s best is the one that gives you the most flexibility, because that's the one that will be the most livable for you.
 

Can I switch plans if I want to?  
 

Absolutely! But we recommend giving it two weeks before you make a change. That’s how long it can take to get used to a whole new way of eating and understand whether your food plan fits your lifestyle and if it will help you meet your goals. If you decide that switching is what’s best for you, you can do it anytime right in the app. Go to the home screen and tap on the profile icon in the top right corner. Then tap the settings icon (top right corner) and select "Food settings" and then "Food plan."
