Weight Watchers new programme helps you lose weight - and keep it off

Personal Points

PersonalPoints™ is Weight Watcher’s (WW) most individualised programme yet: no two plans are the same! Your plan will be designed specifically for you, to hit your personal weight-loss goals - all while eating the foods you love and living the way you want.

The WW PersonalPoints is not only proven for weight loss, it is also shown to:

  • significantly reduce key risk factors for cardiovascular disease; improving unhealthy fats in the blood like cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides.
  • improve several eating behaviours linked with long term weight loss success.

Weight Watchers proven SmartPoints® system at its core, WW makes deciding what to eat easy. 

  • Combined with their app, over 200 delicious and satisfying ZeroPoint™ foods, inspiring community and 24/7 support from their expert Coaches, WW have everything you need.  
  • Those following WW were 7x more likely to reach a 5% weight loss at 6 months than those who tried to lose weight on their own. 
  • The programme is designed to help you lose weight at a healthy rate of up to 2lbs a week (creating a personalised, safe energy deficit for a healthy rate of weight loss), whilst encouraging healthier, more satisfying food choices. 
  • This enables flexibility to learn skills for sustaining weight loss and integrating physical activity.  WW workshops are welcoming, motivating, supportive, friendly and great fun! 
  • They are run by coaches who themselves have successfully lost weight and got healthier with WW. 

WW coaches have learnt how to deal with the challenges of improving their lifestyles and are about supporting others to do the same. 

Every week in your workshop, different topics are discussed, ideas and practical solutions shared on how to build healthy habits and manage your weight.

You will have individual, confidential support at your weekly wellness check-in to help you achieve your goals.  In addition, you’ll have access to all the digital and mobile app tools for 16 weeks. 

This digital support includes a personalised assessment when you join, food and activity tracking, thousands of foods, and recipes to inspire you, fun ways to get active and ways to take care of yourself and de-stress.
