The Science of a SmartPoint®
With Weight Watchers no food is off limits. You can eat your favourite foods – only smarter! Each food is assigned a SmartPoints value based on calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein. By spending your SmartPoints within your assigned budget you will be nudged towards healthier choices, which leads to weight loss results.
How a SmartPoint® is Made
- Calories set the baseline for how many SmartPoints a food is worth.
- Sugar and saturated fat increase the SmartPoints value.
- Protein lowers the number of SmartPoints that something “costs.”
- By eating within the SmartPoints structure you will start eating more fruits, veggies and lean protein, but less sugar, and bad fats.
