Lose weight and feel great with our Weight Watchers 3-Day Zero Points Meal Plan. What would happen if you ate only zero point foods for a few days? You’ll lose weight and feel amazing. A 3 day plan is a great way to break a plateau or kick start your weight loss.
With the new WW Personal Points plan, because each person has their own list of zero point foods, your day might not be totally zero points, but it will be well within your daily points allowance and probably under it so that you can save your points to roll over for later.

(In the past with the Weight Watchers points system that includes 100, 200 or 300 zero point foods on MyWW Green, Blue, or Purple plans, zero point days were possible. Now this meal plan probably won’t be quite zero points, but it will be close.)
Even if you aren’t a WW member, eating a few days of zero point foods can be a great way to kick start your weight loss. You don’t need to join Weight Watchers to follow our efficient plan. Be sure to download our free printable 3 day meal plan & grocery list to follow the plan yourself.
Why Would You Eat a Zero Point Day?
While Weight Watchers does not require or recommend that WW members eat zero points worth of food in a day, eating zero point foods for a few days can give your weight loss a jump start.
This isn’t a long-term plan but rather a way to quickly get back on track with healthy eating. This is a healthy plan because while it is low in points, it is not low in calories. It’s filled with delicious, filling foods like vegetables, fruits, and lean proteins.
This plan is also a great way to learn how to incorporate more zero point foods (especially those point-earning veggies!) into your regular meals and recipes.
However, there might be some occasions when you want to eat a whole day of zero points foods, such as:
- You want to save points for a splurge meal or event. (Note, only 4 maximum points per day roll over into your flex points.)
- You need a kick start to get weight loss going.
- You’ve splurged and need a detox by eating all whole foods.
- You’ve hit a plateau and need to make a change.
- You want to learn how to incorporate healthy, basic zero point foods into your regular diet.
- You want to reduce bloating. (Because the zero point foods are all real, whole foods the plan is low in sodium.)

Helpful Tips to Use the 3 Day Zero Point Meal Plan to Lose Weight
We created this WW Zero Point Meal Plan to be only 3 days (instead of 7 days or longer) for several reasons.
Most of the zero point foods are low in fat. Fat is important for brain function, satisfaction, hunger reduction, energy, cell growth, and more, so while there is enough fat to keep you healthy for 3 days, we don’t recommend following this plan for longer without incorporating additional healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, red meat, or olive oil.
However, you can reuse this plan often (once a month or so) if you enjoy it and it works for you. We’ve now had 15,000+ people use this 3 day plan and they’ve had amazing results.
Rest assured that while this meal plan is low in calories, all zero points foods do have calories so you are not starving yourself when you enjoy this program. In fact, we include lots of filling protein to make it extra satisfying.
Here’s What Happened When 130 Women (Over the Age of 50) Used the 3 Day Zero Point Plan
A few months ago, I was contacted by a national magazine requesting more information about the 3 day diet meal plan. They wondered how much weight women had lost using the plan. We invited a select group of women to participate in this plan together as a group.
We were expecting a few women to be interested and were shocked when over 130 women volunteered. Their results were incredible and we know you will have success with this program, too.
How Much Weight Can I Lose on a 3 Day Diet Plan?
You can expect to lose between 2-10 pounds while following this 3 day meal plan.*
Almost all the women in our 3 day weight loss challenge lost weight and many lost 3-5 pounds. A few women lost up to 10 pounds! Even more amazing is that most of the women in the challenge were over the age of 50, with quite a few in their 60s, 70s and a few women in their 80s.
These results prove that losing weight is possible even as we age. I can’t wait to hear how the zero point meal plan works for you.
*Your results may vary. Always consult your doctor or medical professional for advice.
