Weight Watchers PointsPlus system works by assigning food value points to foods based on nutritional value, instead of calories. Members are assigned daily PointsPlus target goals based on gender, height and weight, which ranges from 26 to 45 points. Members track all of the foods eaten each day by following their allotted number of points. Members are also given weekly flex points, and can earn extra point for exercising.
