How To Calculate Your Daily Weight Watchers Points Allowance

Many readers have asked me how to calculate your daily weight watchers points allowance for the newer Smart Points and Freestyle programs. Currently, it’s not possible to determine that without becoming a paying WW member and having the leaders calculate it for you in their system. It’s all personalized and determined by their formula.

If you are following the old points plus program and would like to know how to calculate your daily weight watchers points plus allowance, you can do it in one of two ways:

  1. Get your hands on an old WW Digital Points Calculator
    It allows you to enter your personal stats (gender, age, weight, and height) and get your daily points plus allowance.
  2. Check out this page that was created by an AWESOME WW member — I’ve compared it to my official Weight Watchers calculator and it is correct. Just plug in your stats, and it will give you your daily points plus allowance.

Now, if you are still following the old Weight Watchers Points Plan, you can figure out how many points you are allowed each day by answering these questions and adding up your score:

  1. Gender:
    Female- score 2
    Male- score 8
    A nursing mom- score 12
  2. How old are you?
    17-26- score 4
    27-37- score 3
    38-47- score 2
    48-58- score 1
    over 58- score 0
  3. What do you weigh?
    Enter the first two digits of your weight in pounds.
    (for example, if you weigh 198, you will add 19 to your score)
  4. How tall are you?
    Under 5’1- score 0
    5’1-5’10- score 1
    Over 5’10- score 2
  5. How do you spend most of your day?
    Sitting down? score 0
    Occasionally sitting? score 2
    Walking most of the time? score 4
    Doing physically hard work most of the time? score 6

Just add all of your scores together and that’s your daily points allowance.

Additionally, you are allowed 35 more “fun” points per week, if you wish to use them.
