Change starts with YOU

WW is built on the latest nutritional and behavior change science to help you build healthy habits for life. And it all starts with your personal assessment.

How myWW by WW (Weight Watchers reimagined) works:
  • When you join, you’ll tell us more about your eating habits, food preferences, lifestyle, and activity level.
  • Based on your answers, we’ll scientifically match you with a color (Blue, Green, or Purple) that guides you toward food choices geared for you.
  • Your WW app will be personalized with your food and activity tracker, FitPoints®, tips & tricks, recipe recommendations, and more.

Our science-backed SmartPoints system takes the guesswork out of what to eat, cook, or order. No food is off-limits.

For extra flexibility, you'll get a custom list of ZeroPoint™ foods—which can include chicken, potatoes, whole grain pasta, and more!— that you don't have to track or measure. This gives you total freedom in what you eat, so you’re never missing out.
