how our program changes your relationship with food
Weight loss and support. None of those on-a-diet feelings.
we know weight loss
Meet the WeightWatchers® experts who ensure our program is based on the latest nutrition and behavioral science.
get a weight-loss plan fit for you
Cookie-cutter programs don’t cut it—customization does. When you sign up, you’ll answer a few questions that help us determine your metabolic rate. Then we’ll tailor a food plan that ensures healthy, lasting, totally livable weight loss for you.
use points your way
Your plan will include a Points Budget, and how you spend is up to you. Wine on date night. Sunday brunch. Birthday cake. No food, event, or celebration is off-limits. And if you run out of Points? That’s where ZeroPoint™ foods come in—they’re nutritional powerhouses you can eat anytime without tracking or measuring.
learn the power of Points®
Many programs consider just calories. Our system takes it a step further, taking into account a food’s complex nutritional factors, like added sugars, fiber, protein, and saturated fats vs. unsaturated fats, to create a single number: the Points value. Points take the guesswork out of nutrition.
see why tracking is key
It’s scientifically proven: Tracking is the biggest predictor of weight loss, because it takes you from eating on autopilot to eating with awareness. Tracking has helped millions of members master portion sizes, turn mindless snacking into mindful snacking, and plan ahead so they can fit in their favorite foods.
everything to help you succeed
We combine technology and community to get you to your goals.
Access your customized plan and Points Budget; food, water, activity, sleep, and weight trackers (plus blood sugar tracking for those on our diabetes-tailored plan); barcode scanner (hello, easier grocery shopping); over 11,000 recipes; a restaurant database; and on-demand workouts for all levels.
When we say we have your back, we mean it. Have questions, need advice, or want extra encouragement? Chat with our expert WW coaches or lean on other WeightWatchers members in our exclusive social network—both available anytime in the app. For the most accountability, join coach-led Workshops. In person or virtual, morning or night, your sofa or a nearby Studio—we’re all about staying connected, conveniently.
