How Many Weight Watchers Points Am I Allowed?

In its own clever way, the highly successful Weight Watchers program utilizes the basic "calories in, calories out" method of weight loss. Calories are simplified by the weight watchers point system which assigns points to foods based on their calorie and nutritional content.

Activities are also assigned points and offset against food points. The resulting calorie deficit will lead to weight loss. Please refer to instructions of how to use the calculator below.

Weight Watchers Points Allowed Calculator

The following points calculator is a very useful tool to complement the comprehensive Weight Watchers program. How Does the Calculator Work? The Weight Watchers Points Allowed Calculator will:

  • Calculate how many weight watchers points you get per day to until you reach your desired goal weight. Just as the recommended daily calorie intake is different for men and woman, so too is the Weight Watchers points-range.
  • As you lose weight, in order to continue to lose weight, you must reduce your points (calorie intake) further. This tool will show you how much to reduce your points as you reach specific weight categories

Weight Watchers Tips

  • Daily points do not rollover. For example, if you are 5 points short of your allowed points on Monday, you cannot add have an extra 5 points on Tuesday to even them out
  • Nutritious healthy filling foods as part of your points such as lean meat, whole grains, fruit and vegetables will result in healthy long lasting weight loss
  • Drink plenty of water

35 Flexible Points - Learn to Indulge

Weight Watchers Points System has a focus on using your points on healthy filling foods, not daily allowable points to be used on sugar and fat. The points list for foods will reflect this.

In addition to the daily food points calculation, Weight Watchers allow 35 flexible points* each week that encourage you to indulge in the occasional treats without threatening your overall weight loss. This is a good way to learn control without deprivation.
