I’ve never tried WW and I am considering trying weight watchers but I have a few questions first.
1. How do I determine how many points I am alloted a day?
2. Any suggestions on a good iPhone Weight watcher point tracking app that isn’t through the actual WW company? The Fee to just join online is $18.99 a month!! Eeek! I’ve came across “Nutrition Menu” and “Points calculator and Tracker for Weight Loss” Anyone try these?

When you join, depending on your gender, age, height, and weight you will be given how many points a day you can use. This calculator gives it as well.
You could essentially track points without signing up for WW. There are a ton of products with points right on the box and typing something into google usually gives you a good idea of how many points it is. WW just makes it easy to track. The second option you gave looks like it could work. Try it for a few weeks, if you are losing weight, great, keep going. If not, decide if maybe WW is worth it.
I did WW online and found their apps very useful but I defintely think you could do it without it. I now use MyFitnessPal (counts calories) which is free. I like it but it is different counting calories vs points.

I use the WW point tracker app and the scanning app and they are great! As far as getting your daily point allowance, I don’t know how to do it without signing up but I’m sure there’s probably a way.
On another note, I highly recommend WW! I’ve lost 11 lbs in 3 weeks! I know it won’t stay at that pace, but it is highly motivating to continue.
It makes you change the way you look at food, so it’s a lifestyle alteration not just a diet.

@stargaze31, I am thinking of paying that $18.99 a month for the online access if these cheaper apps don’t do the trick ! 🙂
@savealife: Thanks !
