How the myWW™ assessment matches you with the best weight-loss approach

Hint: It’s all about youuuuuuu.
Curious about the how WW matches you with an approach to eating that's personalized for you? It starts 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.


Weight Watchers myWW assessment

How do I take the myWW personal assessment (quiz)?

If you’re new and want to take the quiz that will match you the right weight-loss approach for you, join WW today and download our award-winning app.


If you're a current member and just want the chance to try it out for yourself, you're welcome to take the assessment, too! Keep in mind that it was created for new members, so if you don't get matched with the color you chose, remember: You are the expert in yourself. If you decide that you want to try a new color, you can switch at any time in Settings.  

To take the personal assessment if you're currently a member:  

  • Log in to (the assessment is only available on the website)
  • Click on "Account" in the upper right corner
  • Click on "Settings"
  • Click on "Food plan" 
  • Scroll down to “Take our new member assessment”

NOTE: The personal assessment can only be taken once, so if you try to retake it but can't find it, that's why. 


What research went into myWW?

The myWW program was nearly two years in the making. It's based on extensive research into what members want and need 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 colors were tried and tested with almost 20,000 members globally through interviews, concept testing, pilots, and clinical trials.

Which color will help me lose the most weight?  


All of them. No, really. 

After two-plus 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 color 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.
