WW released their myWW plans this week to the World and it’s been an exciting week seeing all the changes that they made.
So, I thought I would give you an update on this site about the current points. I’ve been working behind the scenes on recipe-diaries.com to update all the recipes on this blog with the new current myWW points for all 3 programs. Blue, Green, and Purple. Every point listed on my recipes is currently outdated with old Freestyle points which are now called Blue Points.
As of August 3rd, 2020. All points on my site should include the new myWW points. I also updated all of my WW recipes with serving sizes and that is listed at the end of the instructions list or in the nutrition info area. If the recipe doesn't have any points, I left those out because I felt that it wasn't WW friendly at all.
What plan should I do?
The great thing about myWW is that it allows you to TRY new plans if that plan isn't working for you. So you don't always have to stick to one. If purple isn't working out for you switch to green.
If you would like to know more about the new myWW plan you can check out my 2020 Weight Watcher Updates post.
How do you figure out points for recipes?
The recipe builder app from WW is what I use to figure out points for all my recipes. It comes with your WW membership. I would suggest entering my recipes into the builder once you’ve tried it and liked it. That way you can easily track your day. It is also helpful to use if you have a question about the points regarding a recipe.
I get a lot of pointless (ha!) questions regarding a recipe that could have easily been figured out using the recipe builder app that comes with WW. By the time that person could have entered the recipe in there, they could have found the answer to their question instead of waiting for me to reply. Just a helpful hint here.
Once you've entered the recipe into the app it stays there! So if you decide to switch plans that recipe will still be there.
Why am I still getting different points from what you have listed?
This could be quite a number of reasons and here are a few that I have come across.
- Number of servings
- Low-Fat vs Fat-Free ingredients
- Zero Point foods are different for all 3 plans
- Using the nutrition info calculator instead of the recipe builder
I am currently tracking the Green plan. When the new plans rolled out I first tried purple and then switched back to Green. My goal weight is 150 but since the virus hit, I've been really struggling to track every day. Plus, I can't really do my normal everyday workout routines either which makes it really hard.
