WeightWatchers gives you lasting results

Unlike other weight-loss programs, we’re a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, one that covers every angle: nutritious eating patterns, easy activities and challenges to help you move more, a vast community of coaches and like-minded members for support, and the most impactful behavioral science to help you shift your mindset—and hit your goals.

There’s zero deprivation


No good or bad foods here—and you don’t have to eat prepackaged or 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.”

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. Our Points system 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 won’t feel hungry


After you join, we’ll build your customized nutrition plan, complete with a Points Budget to spend how you’d like—it’s like a financial budget, but for food! Plus, get a streamlined list of delicious, nutritional, foods that you never have to measure or track—you’ll stay on track and curb hunger.

We help you build healthy habits in a way that feels effortless


Eating vegetables, drinking lots of water, exercising: All are important to weight loss, but we know they can be hard to start and even harder to stick with. That’s why our program encourages these healthy habits in clever ways, based on behavioral science, so that one day you turn around and realize, “Wow, this habit is now second nature.”


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, aptly called Connect, is there whenever you need motivation, inspiration, or even new recipes!
