WW is about wellness for your whole life, that’s why on myWW you can choose to lose weight, or maintain your weight while continuing to build healthy habits. Choose your option in Settings.

 

26. Switch colors

Sometimes you want to try something new. And if you decide that switching plans is what’s best for you, you can do it right in Settings. 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."

We recommend giving it two weeks before you make a change. It can take a while to get used to a whole new way of eating and our research shows that two weeks is a good amount of time to adjust.
