What would happen if you ate only zero point foods for a whole day, or even a few days, on Weight Watchers? With the new Weight Watchers points system that includes 100, 200 or 300 zero point foods on MyWW Green, Blue, or Purple plans, it’s possible. Here is a Weight Watchers 3-Day Zero Points Meal Plan for you to follow.
Please note that with the new plan options for Green, Blue, and Purple, this meal plan is zero points on Blue and Purple and low points on Green. Because the Green plan does not include proteins as zero point foods, we do not recommend eating only zero point foods for Green.

WW Zero Point Meal Plan
Why Would You Eat a Zero Point Day?
First, I want to clearly state that Weight Watchers does not require or recommend that WW members eat zero points worth of food in a day.
In fact, each member has at least 16 points per day (Purple), 23 (Blue) or 30 (Green) to enjoy a wide variety of foods, plus zero point foods are allowed, PLUS you get a week’s worth of flex points, too. (Yes, and you will still lose weight! This is why Weight Watchers is awesome.)

Click here for a printable list of the 200 zero point foods on Blue.
Click here for a printable list of the 300 zero point foods on Purple.
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.

Important Precautions with Weight Watchers Zero Point Meal Plan
Before you begin a zero point day or several days, here are important considerations to keep in mind.
We created this WW Zero Point Meal Plan to be only 3 days (instead of 7 days or longer) for a specific reason.
I’ve seen a number of posts on Weight Watchers Connect and Pinterest where people claim to eat a week’s worth of zero point meals, which we do not recommend.
We do not recommend eating only zero point foods for longer than 3 days for a number of reasons, but one of the biggest reasons is that all the zero point foods are very low in fat or have no fat. Fat is important for brain function, satisfaction, hunger reduction, energy, cell growth, and more.
Note, this plan is zero points on Blue and Purple and low points on Green. We do not recommend zero point days on Green because it would be too low in protein.
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.
If you do choose to add a few points to each day’s meals, we recommend you focus on healthy fats (a small amount of olive oil for cooking, for example) or a few thin slices of avocado.
We also included salmon in this meal plan for the healthy fat.
How Much Weight Can I Lose by Eating Zero Points?
Since this meal plan is only 3 days, don’t expect to lose 30 lbs!
However, if this is incorporated into a regular week of healthy WW eating, expect to lose 1-2 pounds for the week, which is the typical amount people lose when following Weight Watchers program correctly.
You might also lose weight with this 3 day meal plan because it is low in sodium, due to the fact that it’s whole, real foods which are naturally lower in salt than processed foods.
