Daily SmartPoints +
(bonus) weekly SmartPoints =
your SmartPoints Budget
Our science-backed SmartPoints system takes complex nutritional data and boils it down to one simple, easy-to-understand number: the SmartPoints value.
1. How do calories relate to SmartPoints?
Every food and drink has a SmartPoints value. Calories establish the baseline. Protein lowers the SmartPoints. Sugar and saturated fat increase the SmartPoints. The reason for this is that numerous studies have confirmed the benefits of eating less sugar and saturated fat, and more protein—not just for weight loss, but all sorts of other healthy reasons.
2. How many SmartPoints do I get?
On myWW, you'll get personalized amount of Daily SmartPoints, plus some extra Weekly SmartPoints for those days when you need a cushion. (Hey, you're human.) That’s your personalised SmartPoints Budget. It's based on your age, height, weight, and sex to ensure that you reach your weight-loss goals.
3. How do I find SmartPoints?
And here's how to track in the app.
4. Can I save SmartPoints that I don't use?
Yes, you can! Up to 4 daily SmartPoints you don't use will automatically roll over into your bank of Weekly SmartPoints. (We call these "rollovers." Easy to remember!)
You'll keep track of your SmartPoints as you use them—the fastest and easiest way is with the WW app.

5. How do weekly SmartPoints work?
Your weekly SmartPoints are there for you when you need them, like a parachute or a really awesome dog. You can use them bit by bit, all at once, or not at all. It’s totally up to you. But you can’t carry them over to the next week, so use them or lose them!
6. Do I get anything else?
You sure do—a large amount of foods that you don't have to track or measure!
