Get to know our most holistic weight loss approach—ever

Tell us about you. We’ll guide you toward your goals.

Designed to help make weight loss easier

Food, activity, sleep, mindset—it all matters when it comes to weight loss. Power your success with our new personal assessment and behavior change science to help you build healthy habits that go beyond the plate.

How myWW+ by WW (Weight Watchers reimagined) works:

Reach your goals with myWW+

  • Take our personal assessment for a holistic view of what impacts weight loss for you—from food to sleep to how you think.
  • Plus, we’ll scientifically match you with a food plan (Blue, Green, or Purple) that guides you toward food choices geared for your preferences
  • Your WW app will be personalized with trackers, FitPoints®, tips and tricks, recipes, and tools designed to help make losing weight easier


WW is built on the latest nutritional and behavior change research to help you eat what you love while building healthy habits.

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 (depending on your food plan). This gives you freedom in what you eat, so you’re never missing out.
