As one of the first commercial dieting plans offered in the United States, Weight Watchers transformed into WW International. Founded by Jean Nidetch in Queens, New York in 1963, WW now offers meal plans, food tracking, exercise support, and community efforts all on a digital platform with WW Studios located across the nation.
The revamped version of the original Weight Watchers program now offers a variety of digital tools, information, recipes, and coaching. The three plans offered are Digital, Workshop, and Coaching. Digital is the basic plan which is incorporated into both the Workshop and Coaching programs.
Digital —$4.61 per week for one month
Workshop + Digital — $10.38 per week for one month
Coaching + Digital — $12.69 per week for one month
Pricing may vary based on your location, specifically for the Worksop program. WW offers a 1-month, 3-month, or 6-month commitment plan. Discounts are applied as you move up to the 3-month and 6-month plan.
There are a variety of resources available when signing up with WW Freestyle. They include a free mobile app, easy online access, ZeroPoint foods, and the SmartPoints system. ZeroPoints gives you food options that will not add any points to your daily point goal. SmartPoints is used to track how much you are eating in a day or a single meal. Similar to calories, a number of points are assigned to a food item letting you know how many points you have left in the day to eat. The WW app will keep track of how many points you have eaten in a day as you input each meal.
The Weight Watchers app is free to download and helps you keep track of meals, workouts, and access to the WW community. Meal tracking is made simple with recipes provided by WW, nutrition information for popular restaurants, and tips on what to snack on throughout the day. Sync your Apple watch, Fitbit, Garmin or your choice of activity tracker to the app for easy exercise tracking. The WW community is a place where you can connect with and support others on your fitness journey.
Weight Watchers has created a rewards program for its members call WellnessWins. You earn points by tracking meals, activity, weight, and attending workshops. It comes included with all three program options. Rewards in the first tier consist of a cookbook, online shop credit, partnered fitness app memberships. From there they range up to the third tier with rewards such as a yoga mat, Bluetooth speaker, Wiivv custom-fit insoles, and much more.
While the cancellation process may be simple, there are a few things you should be aware of. An early termination fee of $64.95 will be applied when canceling a 3-month or 6-month commitment plan. Monthly fees and registration fees will not be refunded, although full refunds are available for individuals who fall under specific circumstances. Some of these include canceling for a medical reason, pregnancy, or relocation to a place that is more than 15 miles away from a WW studio.
WW Studios are popping up all over the country but unfortunately, they can’t be everywhere. If you are interested in the Workshop program, make certain that there is a studio close to you. A lot of the benefits within this program come by visiting these studios. There is the Digital option or the Coaching option but that leaves you with the basic service or the expensive service.
I have used Weight Watchers on and off over the years. I think it's a great program and I appreciated the engagement and support of the employees/mentors. The weekly weigh in's with encouragement from the staff were a huge part of my success.
After studying integrative nutrition for one year (now certified to health coach), I returned for a short trial of the WW program during summer 2019. I joined not only to boost my personal success in weight loss, but also to compare the newly revised methods and mission of WW against my personal knowledge relating to health and weight loss. I was very pleased! There is a much improved emphasis on healthier nutrition and balance, and greater attention to other critical aspects of weight loss outside of what goes in our mouths. I walked away 10 pounds lighter, and with a new ability to recommend WW to individuals who choose to follow a more controlled weight loss program. Hooray for WW's!!
I currently use the app to try and lose weight and it is amazing! It scans items and keeps track of what you eat so you don't have to worry about going over and ruining your diet!
I am a life time weight watchers member. It worked for me. Did not feel deprived and made it easier to keep off.
I use weight watchers app and love it. It is so easy to use and monitor what you are eating. I love that it can scan items and give you the points immediately. They have done a great job with making the app easy to use and intuitive.
Very motivational program and the point system makes it very easy to keep up with. Once off of it it is very hard to keep the weight off. Not long term diet plan.
Weight watcher is a great resource for loosing weight. This program really works and is worth the money

This is the only online app that I Wouk do recommend to anyone. It’s the best way to track what you’re eating and be able to still go out and lose weight.
I have only used Weight Watchers online. For the money all I really was able to use was there app which counted calories. I felt like there were many other apps available which I didn't have to pay for that did exactly the same thing or did it even a little better.
I may have just started with my program, but I'm already seeing results. When I started I was almost 300 pounds. I'm now down to 280 thanks to the point program that is helping me watch what I eat.
I just did the Weight Watchers online and I didn't feel that it was worth the money. There are many online trackers that are available that have no cost for the same service.
Weight Watchers has a really good program. The knowledge I gained has been helpful in my daily eating routine and I like that there is flexibility in the foods you can eat.
Always had success with weight watchers. Can eat a lot of the same food I typically eat and I lose weight
Weight Watchers is a simple and effective tool for diet meal panning and dieting in general. It helped me form new healthier eating habits and allowed for easy tracking of nutrition and points. They have an easy to follow system that helps in weight loss, improved health, and better eating habits overall.
Love the weight Watchers app and it is quite affordable. Helped me realize how bad of choices I was making before using weight Watchers and helped me lose weight fast!
Weight watchers is the only diet plan I have been able to lose weight on. I love how easy the new app is to track your points.
I would recommend Weight Watchers to everyone! I have join Weight Watchers in the past and I have always been very happy with my results. I joined again last year. The meetings are very boosting and helpful to me. The staff is awesome! I love the app for my phone.
Tried this app for a few months. For me, it was not worth the price. you have to do a lot of homework and study what foods have what points and make sure you don't go over your points. I much rather prefer a low-carb diet/Mediterranean diet.
I did this program after I had my 3rd child and was grateful that it was so easy to follow and allowed so much freedom.
Weight Watchers is an awesome diet plan. It helped me eat the right portions with the right focus on calories, sugar, and carbs intake. The portions are tasty and filling. The plan is also easy to follow. I lost quite a bit of weight on the meals for sure.
Helped me discipline myself and get the headstart I needed to my healthy lifestyle journey... healthy eating journey. I like that its real food and not dieting where I'm leaving things I enjoy out but taking the time to plan and consciously count and realize what I'm eating and how much of it! Grateful to have it. I no longer use it but it works. I learned a lot of good things that have helped me maintain that lifestyle today.
I did Weight Watchers and did the program where you were able to just use the app. It made me much more aware of what I was eating. I think that their are many other apps out now that do the same thing that you don't have to pay for.
They are great if you are self disciplined in doing and following their plans. It’s a great way to lose weight and change a lifestyle
Great program but a little expensive. I loved the in-person meetings but there arent very many options near me. The online version wasn't as efficient for me.
I love the Weight Watchers point system because I don’t feel as restricted. I can still eat foods I enjoy (within reason) if I balance it with other healthy choices.
Weight watchers is great. I feel like it is pretty easy to stick to because you can theoretically eat whatever you want. I have known a lot of people who have been very successful. I tended to eat more snacks and less healthy foods just because i could for the points m, so I wasn’t as successful at reaching my goals.
This is no longer the complicated plan it uses to be. It's much easier to find points online and the mobile app helps get you encouraged
Weight Watchers Dietary Plans helped me to loose 25 pounds in about 2 months. I was so impressed with the results and would recommend it to anyone in search of a fast and easy way to loose weight!
I can not say enough good about Weight Watchers!! I’ve been an online only member for over two years and consistently kept off 35 pounds!!!
I think WW is an excellent plan to help in losing weight. The plan is sensible and the support helps a lot.
The food is surprisingly very good for the low calories that are included. I have lost 10 pounds since being on weight watchers and it’s a very nice way to control your diet
I lost weight when going on weight watchers. It is super easy to assign points and eat the foods you are used to eating, just less of them. I would highly recommend.
Weight watches is an amazing program to lose weight in a short amount of time. It helped me lose about 20 pounds within 3 months.
Weight watchers definitely works if you work the program. It is expensive for the little you receive as far as going to meetings and having the app. $30 month for those things is a little high in my opinion.
I did Weight Watchers briefly while I was prepping for a summer of Drum corps to lose a few extra pounds to get in shape for a long summer of running and rehearsing. It helped to jump start my weight loss and made my summer easier on my body. My parents and I all benefitted from the program.
I’ve been on weight watchers for a while now and I’m very close to reaching my goal. Even when I want to eat not-so-healthy food, weight watchers keeps me in check. I love the prize feature.
I’ve been doing WW for almost 3 years. I’ve lost 35 lbs, and have been able to keep it off. It works!
Did not actually work, they false advertise and use actors for their things. Definitely would not recommended
Flexible plans that teach you how to view food and eating situations properly. Long term, though, you will likely hit a plateau before reaching your goal weight, then be stuck dieting just to try to maintain for the rest of your life. If you go off the diet, weight gain will be higher than start weight. Still needs better balance in order to solve health and weight issues long term.
I love the WW app! It's so easy to use, and it really helps me count my points and diet correctly. The lifestyle of WW is exactly that. It's a lifestyle, and once you change your mindset, you can be successful on the program.
I did pay to go to Weight Watchers two times. I found that it was costing me $60 to loose one pound. That just was not good enough results for me.
Weight Watchers is a good alternative to counting calories, but I've never had success with it.
Great program and ideas but just wasn't a great fit for me. If you can stay on track it will work.
I lost weight on Weight Watchers point system. I like that you can eat what you want, so long as you stay within your allotted daily points. It makes it easier to stay faithful to your diet plan and still lose weight! I lost 119 pounds doing this and exercising daily.
What I like about Weight Watchers is that you're using REAL food.... not shakes or powders. I also liked that I could cook food for my whole family to enjoy, not just me. The group meetings weren't convenient for me, but I did find them helpful!
While Weight Watchers has a good product and plan, I felt like I was just another number to them and didn't feel like I got the personal attention that I needed to succeed.
Loved this program until the last program change. It's too easy for me to make meals from all the unlimited point items and then I don't lose weight.
I learned a lot about nutrition and self control. It was user friendly and you had a lot of support
I love Weight Watchers! The point counting system is so easy to use and if you actually stick to the plan results will happen!!
Weight Watchers is so easy to use. They have great customer service and an even better diet program. I can't wait to lose weight with this program
