The WW programs
Get a customized weight-loss plan, the latest nutritional & behavioral science to help you build healthy habits for life, plus Coaching and community you can count on— anytime.
The myWW program was nearly two years in the making. It’s based on extensive research into what members want and need in order to be successful, along with insights and trends from around the globe. They then collaborated with their Global Science team to understand where those trends overlapped with science. All three plans were tried and tested with almost 20,000 members globally through interviews, concept testing, pilots, and clinical trials.
If you’re new to WW, they will start with science and behavior-based personal assessment that asks a range of questions about your unique food preferences, activity level, lifestyle, and approach to weight loss. Based on your responses, They will match you to an eating style that fits you best—Green, Blue, or Purple.
Based on the colors they have a Points (“SmartPoints”) system to determine what you can or cannot eat.
They will set up a program for you and goals, you will be able to track your progress through their app.
Their SmartPoints system is smarter and more holistic method than simply counting calories.
The SmartPoints value is one simple number that represents the amount of calories, protein, sugar, and saturated fat in a food.
Sugar and saturated fat raise SmartPoints value. Protein lowers it.
The higher the SmartPoints, the more attention you’ll want to pay to portions. (Don’t worry, they will help you with that.)
