While you can access your ZeroPoint foods lists on the website and even screenshot them from the app if needed, sometimes we just want a piece of paper to reference So, I have gathered all of the lists and necessary info, and below you have printable WW PersonalPoint™ ZeroPoint foods lists! There is an option to print them all together or each individual category as it applies to you.
How Many ZeroPoint Foods Should I Eat Each Day?
One of the most common questions I see in the WW groups is about how much of a ZeroPoint food you should be eating. WW's stance on this is that if it is a ZeroPoint item it is lower in fat, calories, and sugar so is a healthier choice. They also say to eat just until full. For most, this is an easy thing to do, but if you struggle with portion control, it may be more difficult.
So, I recommend following a guideline of portion sizes. Below are basic portions for the more common ZeroPoint foods items. If you are still hungry after you have had a meal using these portions, then reach for additional vegetables or protein that is ZeroPoint, but try to stick within that 1-2 portion range per meal for best results.
- Non-Starchy Vegetables: ½ cup or 75 grams.
- Fruits: 1 cup diced fruit or 1 medium apple, pear, orange, etc.
- Whole grains: ½ cup.
- Avocado: ¼-1/3 medium avocado or around 50 grams.
- Corn: ½ cup
- Popcorn: 4 to 5 cups popped or 2 tablespoons unpopped kernels.
- Eggs: 2 eggs
- Whole Wheat Pasta: 2 ounces dry or 1 to 1 ¼ cups cooked.
- Non-Fat Yogurt: 1 cup.
- Beans, Peas, and Legumes: ½ cup cooked.
- Poultry: 2 to 3 cooked ounces.
- Fish or Shellfish: 8 ounces uncooked or 6 ounces cooked.
Can I Overeat ZeroPoint Foods?
This is a controversial question to answer. While typically you will hear that WW says no, that is when considering the above portions. In my opinion, not affiliated directly with WW, it is possible to overeat ANY food.
Most of us did not get to a point of needing the WW program because we overate vegetables and fruits, but if we have disordered eating, it is definitely possible to have these become an issue. While I am a huge advocate of using ZeroPoitn food to build your meals, I also know that some struggle and do better when their foods are pointed. If you feel you have too many "free" options that aren't pointed, retake the assessment to adjust for fewer ZeroPoint foods.

WW ZeroPoint Whole Grains

WW ZeroPoint Avocado, Corn, Popcorn, Eggs, Whole Wheat Pasta, and Yogurt
Since all of these are singular items but don't fit in other categories, they are listed with tips on one single sheet together. Highlight what is on your own list for personal use.
WW ZeroPoint Beans, Peas, and Legumes
One of the benefits of eating more beans, peas, and legumes is that you gain tons of great protein and fiber from these. They are excellent for filling in your menu!
WW ZeroPoint Potatoes and Starchy Vegetables
This is a new addition for WW and a favorite of mine. Potatoes, acorn squash, parsnips, and sweet potatoes make the list for delicious additions to your menu that are now optional ZeroPoint food!
WW ZeroPoint Poultry
Turkey and chicken breast are the most commonly used items on this list. They include deli luncheon meats and ground meats as well.
WW ZeroPoint Fish and Shellfish
While this list includes many items you know and love for being low in calories while high in protein, you may also notice things like salmon which tends to be a fattier fish. This is because it happens to be so high in healthy fats and omegas.
WW ZeroPoint Tofu & Tempeh
While I do not use these in my own menu, I know they are a great addition for those who practice a plant-based or vegetarian lifestyle. Both of these items are excellent for adding to dishes or replacing meats for more protein.
