Considering you are inquiring about how many points allowed per day, I am assuming you plan to follow the "Flex Plan" (there are two options- Flex and Core).
To find your daily points allowance, give yourself the number of points listed next to the option that fits your situation best:
If you are female- score 2 points
If you are male- score 8
If you are nursing- score 12
17 to 26- score 4
27 to 37- score 3
38 to 47- score 2
48 to 58- score 1
Over 58- score 0
Your current weight:
Enter the first 2 digits of your weight in pounds. If you are 175 lbs for example, you would enter "17".
under 5'1"- score 0
5'1" to 5'10"- score 1
Over 5'10"- score 2
Your activity level on most days of the week, how do you spend your day?:
sitting down- score 0
occassionally sitting, but mostly standing- score 2
walking most of the time- score 4
doing physically hard work most of the time- score 6
Add up all your scored points- that is your daily points target.
As you celebrate your birthday, increase your daily activity, or as you lose weight, you will need to keep retaking this quiz to most accurately figure your points allowance.
Keep in mind that people who attend Weight Watchers meetings lose 3x more than those who go at it alone. To find a meeting location near you or to find out the current price promotions for membership, please look at their website:
