The SmartPoints® system has been incredibly successful in helping Weight Watchers members to eat better while losing weight. Now, this great company has found a way to make the program even simpler and more livable. Their newest program takes the SmartPoints system that its members know and love and bumped it up!
No fads, crash dieting, extreme deprivation, or short-term results. People following the Weight Watchers plan can expect to lose 1 – 2 lbs per week.
What are SmartPoints? SmartPoints are based on calories, sugar, saturated fat, and protein. Fruits and most vegetables are zero-point foods. The nutrients from many fruits and veggies are only factored in if they are mixed with other food.
What is the NEW Weight Watchers Freestyle Program all about? In 2018, Weight Watchers Freestyle was implemented. This system still uses the SmartPoints system and most fruits and vegetables are still zero-point foods. Now included in the over 200 new zero points foods are mostly lean proteins, such as eggs, most kinds seafood, tofu, skinless chicken breast, legumes, and many more. The foods on this list form the foundation of a healthy eating pattern, so you don’t need to weigh, measure, or track any of them. Refer to the Weight Watchers website for a complete list of zero points foods. The new Freestyle system also allows for the rollover of 4 unused SmartPoints per day into a person’s weekly SmartPoints allotment. As a result of these changes, a person’s daily SmartPoints allotment has slightly decreased. Due to the numerous new zero points foods, the new system gives you more flexibility than the previous system. Less counting, more enjoying!

I hope that you will join me on my get healthy journey as I explore all that the Freestyle program has to offer. Better Health Ahead!!!!
