What is WW (Weight Watchers)?


Pasta, steak, cheese, ice cream ... you can eat what you want on this popular weight loss plan. Formerly called Weight Watchers, the company has changed its name to WW.

The basic principle of eating what you love remains, though the program steers you toward healthier foods with its points system.

In its program called WW Freestyle, you can roll over some of your points to another day. And there are also more than 200 “zero-point” foods that you don’t need to track at all. Those items include beans, chicken breast (skinless), eggs, and fish.
