WeightWatchers gives you lasting results

As you know, we’re all about helping you form a healthier, sustainable lifestyle, one that covers every angle: nutritious eating patterns, activities you enjoy, and challenges to help you move more; a supportive, welcoming community of coaches and like-minded members; and the most impactful behavioral science to help you shift your mindset—and stick with it.

There’s zero deprivation


No good or bad foods here—and you don’t have to eat prepackaged frozen meals. We encourage you to cook what you love and dine out when you want! Unlike other programs, no food is off-limits, so you can enjoy your life fully and never feel like you’re on a diet.

*People following the WW program can expect to lose 1 to 2 pounds per week.

We do much more than count calories


So many weight-loss plans are just calorie trackers. WeightWatchers is like having a nutritionist in your pocket. Quick refresher on our Points system: It starts with calories and then takes into account complex nutritional data, including protein, fiber, natural vs. added sugars, and saturated vs. unsaturated fats.


Your plan is customized and flexible, so you’ll feel less hungry

After you rejoin, we’ll build your customized nutrition plan and your new Points Budget to spend how you’d like. Plus, get a streamlined list of over 200 ZeroPoint® foods you can eat freely.

Learn the latest behavior change strategies

Our chief scientific officer holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, leading a robust team of other doctors and registered dietitians (R.D.). With their guidance, we teach members that how they feel and think impacts what they do—quick-fix programs don’t, which is why they rarely work. Our nutrition and behavior change scientists provide you with simple, practical strategies to shift your mindset and how you approach eating—for good.



Your journey is your own, but you’re never alone


Our community and coaching are legendary. Expert coaches (who are members themselves) are only a tap away in the WW app—so ask anything anytime. And our members-only social network, called Connect, is there whenever you need motivation, inspiration, or even new recipes!
