How Our Program Helps You Lose Weight—and Keep It Off

PersonalPoints is our most individualized program yet: No two plans are the same! Yours will be designed specifically for you to hit your personal weight-loss goals—all while eating the foods you love and living the way you want.

You’re Unique: Your Weight-Loss Plan Should Be Too

Get a Plan That’s Yours and Only Yours

We’ll say it again: No two are the same! When you join WW, we’ll ask you a series of questions via our PersonalPoints Engine, then our nutrition and behavior change scientists design your unique PersonalPoints Budget and an individualized ZeroPoint foods list tailored to the foods you love and can’t live without.

Stay Supported, Your Way

How you live WW is also up to you. (Are you sensing a trend?) Whether you want a self-guided journey, dedicated Coaching, or a community to lean on, you can find your membership match by taking our personal assessment.

Track, Eat, Add, Repeat!

Our program makes healthy choices easier and more rewarding so they feel celebratory—not like work. For the first time in WW history, you have the power to grow your Budget, not just see it go down. Add Points® by eating non-starchy veggies, drinking water, and being active.

Your Questions, Answered!

Nope. While calories matter for weight loss—we’ll always take them into account—we also look at big-picture nutrition data to create one simple number: a food’s PersonalPoints value. After all, calories from a cookie impact your body differently than the same number of calories from grilled chicken, because they have different nutrients. (Both are on the menu, by the way—and with your one-of-a-kind Points® Budget, it’s up to you how you use your Points!) Just track, feel good, lose weight, and keep it off.

You can eat—Any. Time. You. Want. When you join the WW program, our PersonalPoints Engine will determine your unique PersonalPoints Budget and individualized ZeroPoint foods list. Nothing’s off-limits, and any time you’re hungry, you can have a ZeroPoint food without dipping into your Budget. Plus, for the first time ever, you can add to your Points Budget by drinking water, eating veggies, and being active.

We know change can be tricky when things are going great, but you now get an entirely individualized plan and ZeroPoint foods list based on the foods you love—and more personalization leads to more success. Join WW, then tell us which foods those are via our PersonalPoints Engine—they’ll most likely appear on your ZeroPoint foods list.

After you join, you’ll answer a few questions in our revolutionary PersonalPoints Engine—it factors in your answers with our weight-loss expertise, then custom-builds your Points Budget, ZeroPoint foods list, and activity target.

Sure can! We have thousands of meat-free, plant-based recipes that make a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle and weight loss easier (and delicious).

Physical activity can get you closer to your weight-loss goals, so our goal is helping you find movement you enjoy. That way, it becomes a healthy habit that sticks! Whether you walk, do a (free) workout in the WW app, or stretch at your desk, we’ll reward you for being active—for every PersonalPoint added from activity, a Point will be added to your weekly Budget. Win-win.

Get your completely customized food plan (no two are the same!) and PersonalPoints Budget; food, activity, water, sleep, and weight trackers; barcode scanner; recipe database; restaurant finder; meditations and all-level workouts; 24/7 Live Coaching; and more. The app is included with all WW plans!

We have memberships that deliver support in different ways—whether you want face-to-face meetings, WW expert–led wellness sessions, one-on-one Coaching, or a one-stop app for weight loss. Still not sure? Take this quick assessment to get matched with the WW / WeightWatchers plan that fits your lifestyle.
