What Are Weight Watchers Points?

For decades, Weight Watchers has been helping people change their eating habits in order to get healthy and lose weight. And their popular Freestyle program assigns each person a customized SmartPoints Budget that guides them to healthy choices without banning any foods.

Every food and drink is assigned a point value that is based on the food’s calories, sugar, saturated fat, and protein.

WW also identifies certain foods as ZeroPoint because they provide a foundation for healthy eating. These foods do not get counted against the SmartPoints budget, so users are free to eat as much of these ZeroPoint foods as they like.

And with foods like skinless chicken breast being one of the over 200 foods that have been designated as ZeroPoints, people following the WW Freestyle program report experiencing less hunger, fewer cravings, weight loss, and more happiness.

Fortunately, even people not following the WW Freestyle program can reap these same benefits when they incorporate low point or ZeroPoint foods, such as these Weight Watchers Chicken Recipes, into their healthy eating plan.
