Weight Watchers Personal Points – Free Zero Points Printable List
If you haven’t taken a look at WW in 2022, then you might not realize they’ve changed! Last fall, Weight Watchers reimagined their program and the new Weight Watchers Personal Points was born. Additionally, they changed their name to the simple, short WW, because their program is so much more than being fixated on weight! I wanted to compare the new personal points options for zero point food. Because, if you haven’t heard, things like avocados, potatoes, fruit and eggs are now free, zero-point foods! When you take the assessment, you can choose what works best for you. And, from that information, your personal WW program will be created.
What are the options for Zero Point WW Foods?
I’m a wholistic person, and I need to see a picture of what this looks like. I couldn’t find one, so I made one! I hope it helps others out there like myself who need to see it to fully make the best choices for themselves.
When you take the WW assessment — which you can do any time to change up your zero point food — you’ll be choosing foods that work best for you.
For example, the first question is how often do you enjoy vegetables? If you don’t like veggies, then you might not get excited to learn they are zero points. Furthermore, you actually earn more points for eating non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli, cucumbers, and spinach.
The second question asks how often you enjoy eating fruit? If you love fruit, then fruit will be zero points for you. However, if you don’t prefer fruit then you don’t have to assign zero points to them. You can opt for something else!
In your WW assessment, they’ll ask a few questions about the foods you love and regularly eat. For example, which of these you enjoy most days:
- full-fat dairy (milk, cream, cheese, yogurt
- beef, pork, lamb
- salty snacks
- sweet snacks
- refined grains (bread, crackers, cereal)
- fast food (burgers, French fries, pizza, sandwiches)
- alcoholic beverages
For the final two questions, they’ll ask your preferences and give you a select number to choose based on your previous answers. After all, they’re trying to fit all the foods YOU love into your healthy eating plan. If you find that you aren’t able to choose as much as you want, you could retake the assessment and choose fewer things in the preceding questions.
Next, they’ll ask which proteins you prefer. Choose from these: eggs, nonfat yogurt and cottage cheese (plain, unsweetened), fish and seafood, chicken and turkey breast (skinless), beans, peas and lentils, or tofu and tempeh. Of these, you’ll be able to choose a limited number, so pick wisely! (But, again, you can always retake the WW quiz.)
Then, they’ll ask you to choose from the following you enjoy eating most days: potatoes and sweet potatoes, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, brown rice and quinoa, avocado, or corn and popcorn. You’re empowered to choose any of these as your zero point food!
Finally, it’s worth noting that your daily points will be calculated based on the free zero-point foods that you’ve selected. In other words, if you say you love sweet and salty snacks, and you’ve chosen fruits, nonfat dairy and avocados as some of your zero point food, then you may only get 16 daily points. This varies a lot, based on your answers. Whereas, if you aren’t a snacker, don’t eat fast food or drink alcohol, and eat a lot of veggies, you may get upwards from 26 points every day! It truly is personalized to keep you on track and losing weight.
Compare Possibilities of Zero Point Foods
As you can see, based on the choices you make in your WW assessment quiz, you’ll be given zero point foods that you love. Remember, you can re-take the assessment any time you want to change!
