Weight Watchers Blue Plan
If you have been following Weight Watchers for any amount of time, you know that Weight Watchers updates their program every few years. The newest Weight Watchers program, MyWW, allows members to choose between the Green, Blue, and Purple Plans.
Are you trying to decide if Weight Watchers Blue plan is the right one for you?
Choose MyWW BLUE if…
- You liked Freestyle.
- You enjoy zero point foods but don’t overeat them.
- You don’t mind tracking but don’t want to track everything you eat.
- Don’t like whole grains (prefer white).
- You want a balance of daily points and zero point foods.
- You lose weight best with a higher protein, low carb diet.
Before and After Weight Loss Success with MyWW Blue
People often ask which MyWW plan is the “best” but all the plans work equally well for weight loss success.
I am currently maintaining a 100+ pound weight loss, am at goal and Lifetime and have tried all 3 MyWW color plans. While there are benefits to all of them, personally I enjoy Blue the most and it’s the plan I use the majority of the time.
Blue gives you a huge variety of zero point foods while at the same time giving you enough daily points to eat out or enjoy a few treats or processed foods.
Some of the foods that are NOT on the Blue zero point list (like popcorn, whole grain pasta, and oatmeal) are just as well not zero points for those of us who struggle with portion control of carbohydrates.
What Does Blue Mean On WW?
The Weight Blue Plan is the previous Freestyle plan. If you enjoyed Freestyle and did well with it, you will do well with MyWW Blue.
If you struggled with Freestyle, you might do better with a different color plan, such as Green or Purple.
Blue includes a list of 200 zero point foods, so in addition to fruits and vegetables, you’ll be able to eat things like chicken, beans, Greek yogurt, and eggs without tracking them.
What Foods are Zero Points on Weight Watchers Blue?
Some of the Weight Watchers Blue zero point foods are fruits, veggies (potatoes are not included, but corn and other starchy veggies are), non-fat plain Greek yogurt, lean meats like chicken and turkey if 98% fat-free, eggs, beans, lentils, edamame, chickpeas, & salsa.

What Do Blue Plan Members Eat on Weight Watchers?
Remember that no food is off-limits on the WW program.
You can eat anything you want in moderation and count the points accordingly. You have weekly flex points to spend, as well.
Include plenty of vegetables and fruits because they are filling, nutritious, and satisfying. (And let’s not forget that most are zero points.)
Next, include lean protein in your meals. Good options are chicken breast, non-fat Greek yogurt, turkey breast, and tofu.
Then, add whole grains and healthy fats.
Healthy whole grain options include brown rice, whole wheat pasta, quinoa, and oatmeal.
WW is by nature a low-fat diet, but your body needs some healthy fat every day so be sure to spend the points for it guilt-free. Good options are olive oil, nuts, seeds, and avocado. Calories in fats add up quickly so be sure to measure portions with measuring spoons or a food scale.
Finally, enjoy some splurges. Weight Watchers is not about deprivation. Pizza, ice cream, chips and cookies can all be included in moderation. Make your food choices realistic for the long term.
How Many Points Do I Get With WW Blue?
Your daily points allowance and weekly flex points will be determined by the WW app and will vary based on your current weight, age, gender, and height.
Everyone gets at least 23 daily points on WW Blue (compared to 16 on Purple and 30 on Green).
How Does WW Blue Plan Work?
The My Weight Watchers Blue plan works because of calorie reduction.
Members lose weight because the program is set up to help you eat a lower calorie, lower fat diet. Zero point foods can be eaten to satisfaction and include fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins.
Your daily points allowance can be spent on any foods that have a points value, and each member also has a weekly flex points allowance that can be used all at once or spread out throughout the week.
Points for each food are determined by the quality of the food. Foods that are higher in protein or fiber have a lower points value. Foods that have added sugar and fat have a higher points value.
