I am following the current purple plan. It seems to have what I need in a plan.

I like the current plan, because of all the free foods.

I still follow one of the old exchange plans from before 1997. I never was able to make the mental transition to points. When a plan works (and WW goes through a bunch of them) I say stick with it.

Weight Watchers Plans:
We support all WW plans in this group. That includes plans that are no longer an option within the WW app or at meetings. For those who are curious about what the different names mean, below is a simple explanation.

Current WW Plan Option:
All of these are the same plan, but go by a different name depending on the country you live in/follow the plan. SmartPoints is the term used for how we calculate food and track it on this plan. This plan has a 200+ zero point food list that makes many things lower in points than past plans.

WW FreeStyle is in the US
WW Flex is in the UK & some other countries
WW Your Way is Australia

2015-2017 Plan:
Beyond the Scale is the name of the prior plan. Many call it the SmartPoints plan because it was the plan that introduced the term SmartPoints for calculating our food. However, while the food is still called SmartPoints on this plan, it did not have as large a zero point food list. So, SmartPoints are different for this plan than the current plan.

2010-2015:
The plan prior to Beyond the Scale was called PointsPlus in the US and ProPoints in the UK. It is still, one of, if not the most popular plans presented by Weight Watchers. Points are referred to as PointsPlus on this plan and are calculated with a focus on fiber, carbohydrates, fat, and protein.

Prior to 2010:
There were various versions of the classic plan that focused on just using calories, fat, and fiber for calculations. This is less popular but some still use this plan.

In this group, when we mention SmartPoints, we are referring to the current WW FreeStyle/Flex plan
