The weight watcher point system is a tool intended to help people control or lose weight in a way that influences a person's overall lifestyle and eating habits. This calculator can be used to estimate the point value of a food with known parameters.
Effective after December 2015, points are based on calories, sugar, saturated fat, and protein. Fruits and most vegetables are still zero-point foods. The nutrients from fruits and vegetables are only factored in if they are mixed with other food. In 2018, a new point system was implemented. This system still uses the same calculation system, but includes over 200 new zero points foods, mostly lean proteins, such as eggs, most seafoods, tofu, skinless chicken breast, and many more. The new system also allows the rollover of 4 unused points per day into a person's weekly points allotment. As a result of these changes, a person's daily points allotment has slightly decreased. However, the changes should still allow a person more flexibility than the previous system, due to the numerous new zero points foods.
